A dealer friend of mine has been keeping an eye out for a shortie for me. He recently sent this through: Link here

I am sure there is some other surface rust on the bottom."
From what I can see online, the thought is to get a full bus chassis with a gas engine if you can find one (but likely diesel). The van chassis have gas engines that are working at 100%, whereas a bus chassis with a non-van engine will go longer at 85%. The weight load is better as well. This is so low mileage and local though... I'm tempted.
How much would this be going for? Is this a bad horse to bet on?
Interested to hear thoughts -- thanks for your advice in advance.
