Default Looking for a 84-85 FC on east coast.

We are looking for a 84-85 FC on the east coast. We are going to look at one this weekend but wanted to see if any members are thinking of selling soon in case this one doesn't work out. We have looked at several but none from members. Our budget is 20K, I know that is not enough for a spectacular bus. What I'm looking for is good mechanicals and good interior. Cosmetics are really not a concern as long as everything is there and most of it works. I grew up in the trucking industry, prior military experience and for the last 25 years I have been in the the truck, farm and off road tire industry 20 of which was self employed. So if there is any out there let me know please. My email is mctireman@gmail.com and cell is 540-718-3392 Thanks for your time.

That's probably a better place to start Tony.
I don't think you would like much of what you would find for 15K.
I take it your other deal didn't go well.

Sometimes you know when you pull into the yard the coach is not for you,as soon as you see it.
Its just a feeling you get.
Some gut feeling that says "walk away".

And it may be a good coach,but if you have bad vibes,its best to walk away.

I spent 6 hrs going over it in an ice storm and still walked. 1300 miles in 2 days.

Same with my coach. I knew it was the one when I saw the pictures. I wanted a rear bath, a light or neutral color interior, and a blue or Silver exterior. I hit the jackpot of all of those, so I took a chance on the other unknowns. I’ve had a few issues,(who hasn’t) but I love my bus.

Loving the bus is pretty much what it's all about. First one I bought I compromised my wish list significantly and I ended up not being happy. Spend the time AND MONEY and buy something you really will love.
