Funny you mention the cannonball run...we bought our coach in the same state we lived in: Michigan. Problem is, the coach was located in the western Upper Peninsula...500 miles one-way. So even though it was the same state, it was a bit of a truck. My first drive ever in the coach included crossing the Mackinaw Bridge...that was interesting. This was well worth it though. They were asking $14,000 for the coach fully seated, inspections passed, new rubber, and all maintenance taken care of. We paid $7,000 and they took it. They were willing to help us out, and it worked out for them too. Good luck on this and if the coach ends up being purchased, we'd love to see photos! Interior too!
