Salt is a major pet peeve of mine, with owning other old vehicles, it's my number one thing I look at. My 06 5th wheel, that never sees salt, has more rust than bus. It is clean underneath.

I have a question. In your posts you said buying the bus will be stretching the $ to the limit. It has always been said on here that you need to keep $10 k aside as it will probably eat that in the first year.
I know that my FC has eaten several thousand in the first few months.

Yes, this is true, but it's a temporary thing.

I agree with John. You really have to look at them to see if rust is really an issue or not. Most aren't driven in the winters. I know of a few tucked away in a barn together right now hibernating.

You just gotta play the game, travel around, look at a few, and prepare to be disappointed. That's not a knock on this coach, I know nothing about it, but when you see it you'll just know it's the right one. But if you feel like you're settling for something that doesn't make you feel good then you probably won't be happy with it. It's a lot of money to lay out and you're going to be in it for a long time.

If momma aint happy, aint nobody happy. Listen to your wife. Let her have her say and choices. You take care of the mechanical stuff let her take care of the way things look. That's what works in our family.

I knew right away when she saw the pics, the 88 bus was no longer a choice!
