That makes more sense than a mobile grow room (not enough light)  Grin

Shure would not do for a replacement for HUGGY. No place for the lady in charge to set and tell me how to drive.

She gets upset with the lady in the gps when she tries to tell me where to go . Had to change it to a man then seh can yell at him instead of me.

I carry 100 or so gallons of water and some times we run low with just the 2 of us.  and most of the time we are in camp grounds at least every other day.

 Daniel,, You have been following this lifestyle for two years and 45 cities in two years,,,DON'T  DON'T get in a hurry!! There is plenty to look at and time to do it, per your schedule, you won't have time to work on a bus and make a living at the same time, much less the expense.>>>Dan  (My brother & sister in law are pastors in Montana and travel extensively while raising 5 daughters)

The consignment lot is saying the inspection can be done by their shop for $200.00 or I can pay for another shop to do it for about $700.00. Cannot decide what to do but want to make an offer before a pay for an inspection...or do I want the inspect before I make an offer!  I am closing in on what I want to offer thanks to this board...thanks so much.

OK think about it like this. Average shop rate for big trucks and buses is $75-$150 an hr.
So are you willing to pay the GUYS selling it about 2 hrs shop rate to do a full blown inspection for you when they get paid both ways if they approve of it and you buy the bus and they get the commi$$ion for selling it & inspecting it?

Or would you rather pay a 3rd party that has no gain either way with what they tell you about the bus when done with their inspection. And yes a full blown complete front to back top to bottom inspection should take at least 6-8 hrs to do it right.

Yes it's $ gone if you pay to have it inspected and it fails.
But in the long run it's $ saved if you don't spend mega $ on the wrong bus that will bleed you dry!

JMHO!

And to add to what BK said, I would NOT have it taken to the 3rd party shop that the suggest. It might be a great shop, however, I would do your own research and find your own shop that will do good work for you.

FWIW

For traveling around the country and probably being on a schedule, I'd suggest you find a bus with a 4 stroke inline 6 in it. Reason-it is harder and harder to find good Detroit 2 stroke engine mechanics. And-the newer engines pull better and get better fuel mileage. Engines like the Detroit Series 60 (pre 2002 is prime), Cummins M11/ISM, Caterpillar C12, would be my choice. Use an Allison behind it, and you'll have a rock solid drive train. The bus will cost more since the 4 stroke engines are in demand. But with the kind of miles you'll be doing, will recover the cost in less then 2 years.
Good Luck, TomC

I'd contact the Eagles Nest in Nashville and see if they can do a full blown inspection for you.
