Agree most of it looks like a quality build but to use the word “only” in the header is really reaching.

Busting all time record temps here in BC for all of Canada, 115 degrees and we live in a rainforest. Trying to work on the bus is impossible, don’t know how you do it without passing out.

Those folks are ducking high, and an order of magnitude off what their bus is worth (especially at 100k miles). People looking to spend in that price range are going to be buying RV's that are still under warranty and swap out before the warranty wears off. No one gives $100,000 worth of a damn about "chemical free".

I want to give this person the benefit of the doubt and assume it was a typo, and was supposed to be $16,800 - which would actually be kind of reasonable, I suppose. But it looks like they typed it twice.

Because they put the price in the ad properly, and not $168 or $16, I would not send them nasty email, like the guy did to me for asking $1,900 for my refer van that runs and drives, saying he would not give me even $19. I did send a guy a nasty for putting in a 55 chevy for $50 that was a rusted hulk, he didn't want $500 or 5,000, but $50,000. (btw, nasty was 'was it too hard to add 3 zeros?)

If this bus was a 1966 'Bing Crosby" airstream motorhome, something there might be only a 100 of them left, you can ask the moon. How many 40ft old school buses can you buy this week?

Well, here is a 94 rear engine diesel with only "110k miles"..for $11k
