We did look at this one. 60 series rebuilt because of water in engine. But when we looked at it the problem of how the water got into it was never fixed. The muffler and pipe was rusted out and broken in half. So wafer could still get into the engine.

Call if you want to know more

Sean, it shows new exhaust, course that does not mean it is fixed.
Looks like the oil cooler grill is missing, and bunks in the bed room. But could be a good bus.

Mallie, Owner must have just put on new exhaust. When we looked at it, the exhaust was junk and still allowing water into the rebuilt engine. We just didn't want to take a chance. But it would make a nice coach once the bunks are removed.

Any other information on this i was going to go take a look but its a few hours from me.

Can you tell me more about it

What fan motor leaks?
Are the breaks bad?

Told me Aqua hot has not been serviced,
says inside is like new
and outside looks great except for the front how bad is that?

Adding things up to start with is this prices look about right.?

8 new tires $4000
new house batterys $1200
new airbags $2000 or more to have put in
new oil and transmission and all hoses and belts replaced maybe $1000
Have Aqua hot checked maybe $500
take out bunk beds and build back in a bed $300 but then it has no bed side tables.

Looks like at least another $9000 to 10k just to get it in good shape to maybe start using.
Plus then add on the sales tax to get a tag around $2500
Then another $1000 for a blue Ox system for car towing

So more water could be in the motor as well that cant be good.

Main engine radiator fan, probably can be rebuilt with seals, new about $1,000

That is something you need to determine.

Told me Aqua hot has not been serviced,
No way to tell about burner it does not fire, if it does, usually serviceable

Look for water damage on the ceiling. Look for rust underneath

Adding things up to start with is this prices look about right.?

8 new tires $4000
new house batterys $1200
Lifeline AGMs are about $3,000
new airbags $2000 or more to have put in
generally air bags will not have to replace right away.
new oil and transmission and all hoses and belts replaced maybe $1000
Have Aqua hot checked maybe $500
take out bunk beds and build back in a bed $300 but then it has no bed side tables.

Looks like at least another $9000 to 10k just to get it in good shape to maybe start using.

Find out what was actually done in the engine rebuild, and who done it.
Does the rebuilt engine have warranty?
If you are not familiar with this type of coach you may not know how it should drive. Get some one with a similar coach to drive it with you. if the drives straight, engine runs good, tranny shift good, could be a deal.

Call me if I can help.

It is what it is - and it ain't what it ain't.
Cheap coaches ain't cheap
Fixer uppers cost plenty when you finally to get to a place where you feel confident you can safely hop in and drive across country.
Better deals/values are out there
Just sayin'
