$5k? How many miles?

If it is less than a million, you got a steal! Time to look for a bigger trailer

good grief, I'd be all over that in a heart beat!

It looks long enough to take a van body (indoor garage!) and still have a fifth wheel hitch...

It would be but it's way too long as it is, the wheelbase is 27 feet.

I can barely get out of the driveway without making a three point turn.

I got a real good deal on this and couldn't pass it up.




Not bad for $5K
Can't wait to see what you do with this, it's what we are going to be shopping for later this year for the basis of an RV project. Was that setup for a 16' or 20' box?

There is 24' of framerail behind the sleeper so the box was at least that long.

That does look like a great deal. I just bought a Nissan UD1800 for $3K but didn't see much else in the way of an expeditor truck that was either less than $20K or had under a million miles on it. Where did you find it?

I first saw it locally parked at a trucking outfit.

At the time I had just purchased the other engine and transmission and was committed to that.

I did call the owner who lives in Mass to see how much he wanted at the time, which was $8,000. It still had the box on it then as well.

I had seen it advertised over the summer while browsing ebay and a locall wantad.

Once I came to the realization that the transmission/gearing situation wasn't going to work with the bus the gears started turning in my mind but I couldn't find this truck listed anywhere.
Luckily when I looked at it in the spring I took some pictures and sure enough I was able to see the phone # and called just hoping that it might still be available.
It was and here it is.

I think that's the way it works Nate. A lot of good stuff just isn't moving. I am taking notes right now on trailers with the idea that I might be able to get a deal if they don't sell in about 6 months.

Congrats. Looks like a useful truck.
