Crap... I was thinking of selling mine and it is pretty much the same thing, with a little better interior...

That is about the same price as scrap  Sad

No doubt about ebay and last minute.  I am looking at "My Ebay" statistics.  I am selling a 12 V vacuum pump that retails for $169.  There are several people that have the item listed in their "Watch this item" list.  I am sure the last minute they are going to have bidding frenzy.  At least I hope so. 

That bus you posted is really nice!!

Don't be surprised if it doesn't get much over $5,000.00. There are plenty of great deals out there and this may be one of them. It's a buyers market right now. Let's see what the final outcome is.

Hmmm. I am getting about the same offer for my bus for scrap right now... do you think I should list it on ebay and hope it goes for more, or just take the scrap price and run?

Time is a huge factor for me, I am in town for a week and need to sell it or store it somewhere new.

outside of it. There is some broken glass, so I dont know if buyers will want to mess with it, but I think your right on listing it for the minimum bid of the scrap price

  With so many Buses for sale today, buyers own the market and will for the foreseeable future. I would spend whatever you need to spend on your Bus very wisely, because you likely will never see any return on investment. If you need to sell, and if you really want any money back out of it, unless its finished to the nines youll probably do better parting it out and scrapping the shell.

  Not fair? Do an advanced google search for bus conversion in craigslist. There are 100's and many are very cheap and not selling. When people start selling their things at fire sale prices, it brings the value of everything simular down to that level. We had a house valued at over $500K. When a neighbor sold for $269K because they panicked, what do you think it did to our value? Some neighbors wanted to shoot that SOB, lol. Well, same with Buses. People losing jobs, losing house, Bus has to go, aint selling fast enough, they drop the price until its gone. Everyones panicky. Probably gonna get worse too. If they were smart they would keep the Bus and dump the house. Those are losing money faster than anything.

I totally agree! As would anyone who has ever been homeless. It's a lot easier to have a roof over your head for your family with a paid for bus or even a S&S then it is in a house with a mortgage.

I noticed that one on ebay as well. If someone get's it for that price and if it is as it appears to be, then that is an awesome deal.

Some buses I see appear to be outstanding deals. When something seems to be "too good to be true"... I start to worry. One bus that I can't understand why it hasn't sold is this one: http://www.sellabus.com/j_miller.html He may have it sold now.

It seems that RV's in general are a buyers market right now and bus conversions are a subset of them with a smaller set of potential buyers.

On March 28th, he offered that bus on the Yahoo GMC group for $10k. Seems like a pretty good deal. Don't know if he still has it.

We all are doomed to keep what we have forever. If those are selling for that price then I would have to pay someone to take mine! LOL.

so how much do these things weigh?

I was under the impression in was around 20,000 lbs... and depending on my negotiation skills I should be about to get 20 to 25 cents per pound (4000 to 5000)...

No matter what they weigh, I must be taking my scrap to the wrong place.
