If not stolen, could be "borrowed" by a family member or someone else that you may not want to get arrested.

Looks like a repo man trying to get it back.

Hmmm,  several years ago Lemon Bay Tours reported their 4905 stolen when they came to their office one morning and the bus was missing.  Seems the repo man paid them a visit during the night. Took a couple days for the police to trace down where the coach went.  Jack

Hi Guy's,

Repo men are suppose to drop a copy of the order to the local police in the town that the

recovery was made either before, or immediately following the recovery.. Otherwise, they are

creating wasted effort for the police that they are not too keen on doing...

I was in that biz for 8 years way back when! Cool

Kind of hard to hide something that big. I'll bet she's sitting in a back lot somewhere crying.  Cry

I have long thought it might be a good idea to paint a distinctive marking of some kind, a number, word or symbol on the roof of our buses so they could be easily spotted from the air, just in case.

    I know several ranchers that did that with their trailers. They would paint their registered brand on the top of the trailer large enought that it could easily be read from a plane.  
    I seem to recall, years ago, a company was advertising large letters & numbers for this purpose in the FMCA magazine.  Jack
