Loaded and ready to roll...My dad had to drag out of the bus because he said I couldn't ride in it on the way home.

Cool, you got it.

No mention of the price? I though it was a nice deal for that Bus especially since you said it was local.

It doesn't matter, I just thought it was worth mentioning.

The gas heater looks like an under-dash model. Fairly uncommon as they were usually mounted in the engine compartment. I'm blanking on whether those are an Eberspacher (German) or a Southwind (US) but someone else will know. Or you could take a look.

Very nice find and a great price! You may want to help protect your investment by relocating the in-line fuel filter to another location Wink
