Who is selling their/a bus?
« on: September 09, 2010, 01:56:52 PM »
If you are trying to sell a bus, please post pics and details.  I am actively looking.  Looking at all types, but preferably not transit.  It will be fun to see what you all have out there : )

  Im curious what you found on the 4104. Any problems, not the style you want?

I am going to go look at the 4104 as soon as I can find a mechanic to go with me.  I am interested in it, but am wanting to just see as much as I can of what is out there.  I am becoming obsessed with this thing.  I can see why one is called a bus nut!

Maybe try this site.http://craiglook.com/all.html?q=eagle+bus 
How do you plan to use the bus? travel, occasional holidays with family, or as one prospective busnut, he needed some thing for the mountains of Appalachia for mining. I would shop, shop shop prices are in your favor. good luck :)

That one I posted from calif really sounds about right for you.  Make sure there are receipts for the engine work, also the asking price is a little high, you might get it for 10 (specially since you need to go out there bring it home )  but it looks ready to roll.  FWIW if you shop around with a little patience you will you will save $$$.

I will have more pics and info for that one by tomorrow  ;D  It looks like it's my kinda ride!  I hope you are right about getting it for a good price ; )  What would you start with for an offer if everything checks out?

It's weird with buses, they are kind of like old pianos, they have family history so sometimes the buyer really overvalues them (when I was looking for a piano everybody wanted 800-1200, ended up finding a package deal 3 fro 400) sold one for 300, scrapped the other for parts, and kept the third/best one)  Point being when I was looking for an '04 some folks wanted big $$ for rough buses, some with broken glass, no documents, Dad put "tons" of money into it etc... and they want to make a "profit".  A few got really pissed at offers for market value.  I would look around and comparable used 35 motorhomes and coaches as a comparison, and offer $10K and if I had 10K right now I would probably get that bus and keep mine for parts.

I hear ya.  That's how the fishy owner was.  He just wouldn't budge.  It's a nice bus, and somebody did put money into it, but it's just not worth 17 to me with the options on the market.

One of the main problems, I believe, with the value of our buses is that a higher dollar amount usually means financing. To my knowledge banks dont finance old buses (even recent beautifully converted ones), or at least they are hard to find...... and then the insurance problem too.
