Peabody,

Since it appears that you are really trying to find a decent diesel in your budget, PM me with your budget and I'll look around on the West Coast and let you know what I find.

FWIW, you want a "clean" not salvaged title. If it has been rebuilt, why? Those coaches should run at least 500K before hitting the half-life mark on the 3208.

Ken

I went I saw I didn't buy.It was in pretty good shape you had to look past the faded paint to see what she could be on the outside that wasn't the problem.The problem was the second you opened the door there was another room right in your face(bathroom)the lay out was crazy.The kitchen and lounge were separated by the bathroom,which made the bathroom real tiny.Ya had to be a small child of maybe seven to use the shower.And to think this was a Wanderlodge never was a school bus very poor planning on their part.It was in decent shape did have all the bells and whistles for the time and some one will love it and buy it just not me.Hugs Peabody
