I think I found a bus! (I hope)
I found a bus, and I'm trying not to get too excited until I see it in person.
I'm writing to ask for guidance on how to proceed, and what things to look out for.
It's a bit older than what I was looking for, a 1988 Ford 6.6l, 11 windows, but it's close by to me (rare), looks very clean in the pictures, and it only has 30K Miles according to the odometer.
Although it has been converted, I would still gut it and start over, as only the walls have been insulated and not the floor.
The other big plus is that it is already registered as an RV, which saves me a big headache in getting home and so on. That in itself is a big plus for me.
The first thing is my skepticism at the low milage on such an old bus. Should this be a red flag?
And my next worry is the engine. This is the first time I look into this engine, which I think is the New Holland 6.6l. Before this, the smallest engine I looked at was a T444e. Will I be shooting myself in the foot if I get a big bus with such a small engine? My plan is to drive across North America for one year.
They are asking $4,500 for it OBO.
Any thoughts will be much appreciated.
