Yeah, I saw that add. . . but without pictures and more info, it's hard to compare it.  I've seen some nice home conversions, but I've seen a lot that are poor quality and look like someone just carried out their house furniture and set it inside. . .  and I've seen shells advertised for more than $8,000 ha ha.  I wonder why the price IS so low on this one. . . small picture makes it hard to really see much about it.

Any other comparables I missed out there?Huh  Christy

Christy, I seen some nice looking MCI 9 years 83-85 shells in Phoenix sell for around 5 grand with autos and 6v92t engines I think 8 grand for a 4107 shell maybe a little over priced in today's market


good luck

Christy, I am looking around for a shell.  That is why I asked for more details on just where your 9 is at in the process etc etc.

As far as the price you have Tempbus at........  I LOVE the conversion you did.  But for me, there is just no way I would go anywhere near trhat price range on it just because of the model bus you started out with for that one. 

As far as comparable on the market, in my opinion they mean nothing.  The only comparables that would mean anything would be those on busses that have actually sold.  If people just compare what things on the market are priced at it can just perpetuate having he market heavy on busses that dont sell because everyone is wanting what everyone else wants out of them and not what people are willing/able to pay.

Just my two cents worth (ok so maybe my two cents worth is only really worth 1.5 cents).

Thanks, but we didn't do TempBus, it was a factory converion, by Sundance Coach. . . but hard to believe that conversion was done in 1985, isn't it!  Quality workmanship always shows through. . .those raised panel doors and the quality of the woodwork makes it still look new.

We have a MCI-9, with a DL3 kit. ..  smooth sided, fiberglass caps rear and front, we've skinned over some of the windows, tore out the floor, replaced the metal on the wheel wells, and insulated the entire floor. . . we ran some conduit from the front to the rear and bays, and then installed two window units in one bay, piped into the center channel along with some extra ducts that were to go up behind cabinets, boxed returns ducted up through the floor where there were to be cabinets. . . and a overhead exhaust setup for the genny. . . basically, I just had Larry pull it down in the back yard by my woodshop as I got ready to tear down the ceiling and start the interior, when we stumbled across a great deal on a 1991 Beaver Prevost XL Mirage conversion and before we knew it, we were the proud owners of yet another bus.  This new one is so awesome, that we decided to sell the rest and just enjoy IT!  ha ha

I'll put a link on our website tonight and try to get some pictures up. . .  if you'll check it later hopefully it'll be complete for you.  Don't hesitate to contact me through our website or PM me if you are interested.  Thanks, Christy

Christy,

That's a nice looking bus and a good website to boot! I should have you do up my site when we sell our MC7!  Grin  You can do it in your spare time! Or maybe I can come out to Oklahoma & work it out as an AC tech...  Grin Grin

I think your pricing is about right for today's market. It's a factory conversion, well done and nicely maintained. Also, $35K is still in the area of what lots of people can come up with cash, as opposed to having to get financing. The down side is the base bus may not be quite as attractive (model & year) as some others.

I hope you get your price as it will give me hope for selling mine shortly. It looks like I am well on my way to becoming a "subversive" for buying a Bluebird Wanderlodge.  We will be going down to take a look at it in July.

Good Luck!

TOM
