About 30% difference, so around $20K American, the price looks MUCH better... up


The funny thing about science is that if you change one miniscule parameter you change the entire outcome to the way you want it.

The Loonie is on the rise, so this would be just a tick over $22K USD. Still not a bad price if the coach is as nice inside and out a the photos suggest. Especially once you haggle him down. The 19.5 Alcoas are easily 10% of that if the the rubber is current.




These were great, quiet motor coaches that rode very well with their fully independent suspensions with torsion bars for the rear. They had an issue with wandering, but supposedly this was solved.
The didn't use a traditional ladder frame, but nearly were unit-body construction. This, the pusher configuration, and the streamlined A/C units allowed them to have a pretty low (9') overall height for a class A of the day.

Being an "M" model, it doesn't have a large sink, cooktop, or traditional stove, but .


They were mid $20-50k+ when new, and quite a few a-listers bought them.

I would be looking to get an overdrive on the back (front?) of that 440, but I am not sure if a 518 would fit in between it and the differential.
