That's an awesome oldie, but a little too old for me I think.  Would love to go ride in her though!!

Yeah that's a nice looking '04.  If the paper work is there taht looks like a very tight bus.  Only probem is you may never learn anything but maintenance on that bus.  Now my bus...it's a !@#%^*!  university  Grin

BTW on this site the easiest way to post pics (especially as they don't need to be sized (shrunk really) is to post you pics on a free site like photobucket or similar and then copy past the IMG link here.  You can also make an album and C&P the link so we can see all the pics.

I'm starting to get a little frustrated.  I made an offer on the 04 in San Diego 3 days ago and haven't heard anything back.  I sent another email yesterday trying to confirm the first one, and still nothin.   Lips Sealed

  Have you spoken to them by phone, or just sent emails back and forth?? Have you seen the Bus in person, or just pictues??

well shoot! either they had some emergency or something which put them off line or they are having 2nd thoughts on selling it or maybe a personal war over selling it....... dang! But if it isnt meant to be, then it isnt and there are plenty of real nice buses out there right now. It is a really good time to buy!

Just so you know....some folks take it as a personal insult when you make an offer they don't like.  They kind of act like you are trying to rob them.  Same goes for bids on jobs.  I made a bid on some remodels fpr a good client a couple of years ago.  They thought the price was way too high....haven't heard from them since, won't return my calls.  At this point they have lost so much face (they hired another guy, he charged them cost +, it ended up costing more than my bid, and the work was substandard)  pride makes it difficult for people.  Stay nice with them....they may realize the market is where it is., and if so then you will have a deal.

You made them an offer. They may have someone else kicking tires also. But if I was serious about selling I would sure keep you on the hook even if I wasn't letting it go for your offer.

I ended up speaking to a gentleman in SD who was very gracious.  He just hadn't had a chance to get back to me.  He said that my offer wasn't near what he needs, but that he will come down a couple grand on the price if I can do it.  I still need to look at the 4106 in MO and make a decision between the two.  Looking good!

YOu need to see if you can find a SD busnut to give that bus a peek.  It is pretty hard to buy a bus unseen.  Pictures can really misrepresent....both the good and the bad.
