Looking for RE

Looking for a 40' or right there RE bus. Solid runner that has engine/transmission to go over mountains in the north and through Florida consistently without issues. Little to no rust with ac in place. Aiming for around Florida if possible for easy pick up but open to traveling if bus is what is needed. Less that $5000.

It looks like it has the 6.6l CAT engine. I have never dealt with that engine.

Anyone here have any model specific knowledge?

I heard Cat was on the avoid list. Good engines until they need something then they are a pain and $$$.

I wonder if that mileage is correct.

I seriously doubt a training vehicle would have only 10k miles on it in 17 years. I think bus speedos must be the cheapest quality gauge made, more common than not that it has been replaced at some time during it's life.
