Crown,

Hate to hear that story.....I had a similar experience when I was first coach shopping.  I had actually won the coach on eBay and someone else sent the guy an email and he sold it to them.  He didn't care a hoot.

What goes around, comes around and I believe that people like that get whats coming to them eventually.

The good news is, I found the coach I have now, it was a better deal and I saw the other coach for sale a year later with a bad engine.

Sorry for you situation, it will all work out..........

  Just playing Devils advocate here. Did the seller know you bought tickets and were on your way, making plans, etc..??  If they did, then they really are SOB's. If however, you had not made it 100% clear to them your intentions, that you were onyour way, then the problem is really your own, and no one else's. Curious if you made a deposit to hold it, or if they verbally told you they would hold it for you.

  Even though your in Costa Rica, you may be able to make a claim against them for damages. I would imagine airline tickets to the US are quite expensive, especially if they are non-refundable. But if you didnt make a deposit, or have a verbal agreement on tape, you probably wont get very far. Sorry for the trouble.

  I will say though, Bus shopping is a lot different than anything I have ever tried to buy. Sellers act like locals are going to beat their door down to buy it, hard to get them to send pics, hard to get them to give details, they ALL have a rebuilt engine without paperwork or a new clucth without same. Its really a crazy market.

  I wish you luck, hope your dreasms do come true.

This all does suck! Not to take up for the seller but all the out of the country scams now  days its hard to wait on a buyer. If it's not to far you need to check this place out. It has everything and they will tell you up front if any problems. http://www.pplmotorhomes.com/

john,

i'm so sorry you keep getting burned by jerks.  i'm with BK-someone that would make a deal and then sell it out from under you at the last minute, needs his nuts in a cracker for a while.  or just cut his fingers off so he can't use craig's.

at this point, fly up anyway, rent a car, stay in a hotel, go to the bus rally.  if you stay in the nice but inexpensive hotels, you might even save money between cost of the rv and the diesel to go in it versus driving a car.

remember the real benefit of the trip.  Relax and see the countryside (and us).

by the way, i have a friend whose talking about retiring to Costa Rica in a couple years.  he'd really appreciate if you can send me any tips for him to watch out for or look for in moving to CR.
