That bus was on CL or somewhere a while back. I could not get those colors out of my head. Does anyone think that power strip is a GFI? LOL. With the lack of a hatch, I wonder how bad the floor is? Upside is it looks pretty straight. Unless there is lots of bondo under that brilliant color  Roll Eyes

it looks prety straight. don't think there is any bondo on it. they put prego on the kitchen floor and as you step into the bedroom 2 or 3 pices are smached down a little. i put my foot there and feels alittle soft. someone did some funny things to this bus. it's a shame. so how much would anyone pay for it? thats if ya wanted it.

John, depends on how much you want to pay for a little history because that is all you would get there but as Jack Hart says about his scenic cruiser "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder" if I bought it Wal-mart would be my first stop for a roller and gallon of paint.



good luck

Zero, do they still have the giant cinnamon rolls at the Maltby Cafe? Is it even still there?  One of the construction companies that i worked for moved their base yard to Maltby in the 80's but went out of business a few years later. Just to the west of the Cafe on the south side of the road there is, or used to be, a big cabinet shop. We did all of the clearing and site work for it. Grin

According to SWMBO (she who must be obeyed), I cannot have any more.

I was thinking mine were rough, but at least none of mine have those ugly colors . . .

All in all, it has quite a bit going on. The automatic is a huge plus (assuming it works.)
And, anyone that buys it is going into it KNOWING they will have to rip it all out.
Interesting floor plan & the floors have been lowered - the big question is were they lowered in an acceptable manner or hacked out?

Nice pictures BTW

you can go to a home depot parking lot and pick up 5 south of the border types for a day and they would have it all ripped out and clean. maybe $300  then you need some home depot cabinets $750  then new flooring and subflorring $1200 tops...and some diveders and new fixtures for the bath. with careful shopping $3000 total.   i like the bright colors but you could take it to  t.j for a $299 special......

    I'm gonna try to drop by and take a look at it on wed.  I've also heard about an Eagle on the river road between Everett and Snohomish and will try to find that also...Not buying just looking.  It's a disease.  Enable me....Cable
