Looking to buy and for advice

I am looking to take the plunge into the world of skoolies and think I have found a good short bus. Any advice you have on this model and the asking price would be great:

1989 Ford Bluebird Conversion RV Title
Ford 6.6L Turbo 113,000 miles
Looks, Runs and Drives Great


or for pics:

Thanks guys! I can barely contain myself.

Looks like a tight little unit. Great size, should be a nice ride with that turbo diesel. RV reg is great, it saves an inspection and at least in canada, it exempts the bus from all the usual CV inspections and gives a hefty savings on insurance.

Looks like a clean unit if it's the size you need, if you plan on full timing or extended trips it it would be on the short side for my taste.

Take care,
