I have 4107-1118 for sale. It runs, has been gutted and is ready to be converted, or used for parts, everything is there. It has an 8v71 with the Spicer manual 4 speed. I bought it 1 year ago, and drove it out to Southern California from Las Vegas. Plans have changed and I need to let it go. Looking to get $7K OBO.

unfortunately, I think it may be priced a tick too high for today's market. I've seen 40' shells with auto trans asking that or  a little less and still not selling. The market today sucks. That said... one never knows when the right person may come along and scarf it up. I'd love to build another buffalo, but, alas, I think my building days are behind me now. Luck with it.

I hate to agree about the price, but I know of a 75%-finished '89 Prevost with two slides that would go for not that much more.  It's listed over on the BNO, with a little interest.  I wasn't sure if I was allowed to put up this kind of post on this forum or not to help move it along.

It's basically a give-away resale market for these things, so I wish you luck.

Cheers, John

The bus looks real nice but like it has been said the market is tough. The younger generation doesn't want to buy some 20 to 50 year old bus and take time converting it like us crazy bus nuts. Look at some of the RV shows on tv, they come in with the family and the wife wants all the same as home so they but it and stretch themselves out for the next 15 to 20 years paying for it. Most of the younger generations now want the enjoyment and pleasues now and now have to wait for it. I see conversions on Ebay now and if I had only know back then what I see now I would not have started a bus conversion. I could just buy something resonable and just make some minor changes.

Thanks everybody, I appreciate your input. I breaks my heart to have to let go of this bus, it has become part of the family. I am willing to take reasonable offers, but I have to get it gone. Thanks everybody for your help.

I have seen folks pay way more for way less in the short time I have been in the converting/twirling iron on these beasts of ours. Sure the market is in the toilet right now, but it was in the leach fields back in 2007 when we bought our Eagle. If someone looking for a coach to convert and cannot afford 7 g's for a vehicle, then what will they be able to afford when it comes down to the nuts and bolts of bus ownership? These younger up and coming busnuts (not all of them mind you) are pretty tech savy and self reliant, some have the desire now to join in this Nomadic lifestyle as opposed to being chained down to a mortgage. This bus is pretty solid and not at all that bad on the eyes outside. I know first hand that the sale of this bus would help fund the purchase of a bigger and better project for Matt's family, in turn facilitating the sale of yet another coach that some one else desperately needs to part with. See the cycle continues and continues to keep this crazy life style of ours rolling along. Matt just stated that he is prepared to move on this. Matt post it with the BCM crew as well as over at the BNO classifieds, Craigs list etc.

 I wish you lots of luck Matt in your search for a more suitable coach  Wink Smiley When you find one be sure to bring it by the shop for an updated money shot photo behind the Palms Casino  Grin


  All the best!
   Just me Wink

Thanks for the kind words. I mentioned that circumstances have changed, and by that I mean that I am now looking for a 40' bus that has more headroom. I haven't had time to list it since I have been on duty so much lately, but I'll get it up on Craig's list this week sometime.

Whatever we get, we will absolutely stop by B&B and say Hi... You guys hold a special place in our hearts. Thanks again for helping out a nubie like me.
