I would keep in mind that although this is wonderful forum, it is public to members and non-members. Specific disclosure of your intentions may not be prudent to say the least.

If I were currently in the market, my answer would be one dollar less than me.

Get more info, or go see it.

If it meets your tastes, set your limit and bid accordingly. Easy come easy go. There are plenty out there, but you have to look.

Good luck, looks like a beauty!!

If someone overbids what I can afford, that's life and how auctions work, should have asked Approx. value is on it assuming good condition
and I can not go and look at it, too far away and I am flying to CA next week

Wait until the last half hour of the auction to bid, otherwise all it does is drive up the price, that is what I did when I bid on mine.

If it is an 83, the front end has been replaced. Also, beware that is a dealer selling it, not a private party. They typically ask top dollar.

I have been eyeing that one up for awhile now. I talked to Paul in Sales and the owner Steve Mitchell and tried to find out info on the coach. Their website " download complete specs" were for a 2006 M450 not for this coach. It took weeks for them to correct that and now I see it is messed up again. I can't begin to understand that. They were asking 32K for the coach. There is no service history but they have sold this coach numerous times.

I also chatted and asked for details on tires, batteries etc and requested some engine bay pictures. They did not know anything about these details. This was all at the end of August. I have not had any luck receiving any of the information requested and phoning to catch Steve seems almost impossible as he is always out for on the other line. Pretty much have given up on Parliament as a source for a coach.

Everyone here seems to really like Parliament but my experience with Parliament has been dismal at best. I even offer to pay for the calls with a toll free number. You will have much better result obtaining information with Randy. He follows up. Randy will also verify I provide a toll free number so it can't be made any easier.

Eric- She's in pretty nice shape as seen in the pictures! Whatever you are prepared to spend, make sure that you set aside at least 10K BEFORE the sale for needed repairs and improvements. I can almost guarantee that it will need some type of work the day you drive it off the lot. Rarely do perfect coaches ever get sold on ebay. I'm sure that Parliament has a list of people interested in a Vintage Bird. This one went to flea-bay for a reason! Tires, generators and other heavy duty repair work adds up quickly and will deplete your reserves in pretty short order.
