Default Why I bought my bus.

I had never considered an RV, but then again I'd never seen a Bluebird.

I generally buy durable things I like, and I keep them for a long time. I rarely buy new, I'm happy to let other people pay a premium for the new car smell.

This bus to me feels even more solid than being inside of any house built in the last 50 years, and is comfortable and attractive. I feel like it makes me look better standing near it.

I'm proud to own it, and look forward to doing lots of cool things, and my goal is that it'll be in better shape when I'm done using it than it is in today.

This bus both solves a problem for me (consulting away from home) and opens up the possibility of travelling all over the country and beyond in comfort and style.

I am in love, and couldn't be happier. I know this is a little mean, but I am glad that these busses are such a well kept secret. It's baffling and incredible that these busses are going so cheaply when people are paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for something I wouldn't take for free. Seriously.

Well, I gotta say I know more than I did a month ago. I hope that continues, but what I also know is that I was pretty reckless and lucky with this purchase.

I could have gotten a 40k boat anchor for as little effort as I put into having it looked at, but I had a good feeling about it. I know that's dumb, but hey.

The bus looks pretty drab outside because memphis rain is acidic, so I need to wash her and wax her up (how the heck do you wax ~1160 square feet of bus?), but the inside is in super shape and she runs like a champ.

So, I bought my bus the wrong way but I'm happier than ever.

Get a Porter Cable 7424 orbital polisher. It's impossible to burn thru paint with one of these things. Makes waxing/polishing a whole bunch easier.

I once saw an infomercial on waxing an RV in a couple of hours. The guy was selling polish and used a power right-angle buffer to put it on and take it off. He made some claim that anyone could wax a 35 to 40 foot motor home in a couple of hours. I might have seen this at an FMCA rally. Anybody else come across info like this???
