up until 2007 Corbeil was made in canada and designed to handle harsh winter conditions, they also used light weight parts, for instance the hood on mine is plastic.
Collins bought out Corbeil in 2007 and started to assemble them in Kansas.
they are now built strictly by Collins design and no longer Corbeil design.
Collins makes a good bus and you can order parts from them online.
any bus you are considering buying you should look at the frame all the way through for rot or bad mounts, you are going to see rust but stay away from rot.
check fluids, filters, lights, tires, etc, try to get the best condition bus for the money and spend a little more if you need to if it means having something in better overall condition.
