I wasn't aware that MCI made a 33 ft bus, nor was I aware they had a chassis lol and a cat in an MCI?  Too much for me to absorb, I get corn fused by all the big words, and it says it doesn't have an air system?  I guess who ever buys it would  be riding the short bus? lol But it certainly does look interesting and it looks like some kind of an MCI.

Someone did some serious body work if that is an MCI.  The sides, luggage bays, and rear look nothing like any MCI I have seen.  The front looks very much like an MCI except the bumper.  It does kinda look like it used to have a front door like a regular MCI.

I thought it might be an F3500, but I don't think it is.

NEVER A BUS! MCI? never a bus, huh just what do they think MCI stands for? Macho Camper Invention?

By the way Cody, yes there are lot's of MCI's with CAT's, not as pretty as Sonnie's, but quite a few of them! (not as common as a Detroit, or a Cummin's, but yeah they are around here & there!)
Peoria Charter (you've heard of and seen their red buses around your in-laws place in IL) used to run nothing but CAT's in their MCI's

No air brakes? MCI?

I could write books on what I don't know about buses and I openly admit that if I can't run it thru a cabinet saw it confuses me lol.

The F3500 looks nothing at all like the motorhome in question.

It may very well be worth the price but with hydraulic brakes and an exhaust brake, it unlike any bus I ever heard of except perhaps the Allegro Bus.

What I find funny is they spent over $485.000 on it but for the very small sum of only $15.000 its yours.

LOL yeah right and I've got and 1862 MCI old abe toured the war zone in that's been up on blocks for the past 100 years in a cave in KY with such low miles it aint even broke in yet, with a 60 series and I think the rubber is still good to go. All you got to do is throw in new batteries and fresh fuel, knock down some stalactites and stalagmites to clear the way to drive it out and it's your for $$$$$. P.S. Cash Only
