Anybody as weak willed for Mercedes motoromes as Winmut?

http://sandiego.craigslist.org/esd/rvs/2363258815.html

From a posting at Expedition Portal-

"Went to check this out this weekend. It's at a junkyard past El Cajon, and it looks like it hasn't been sitting there too long; tires have air.

I'm pretty sure it's a 508d, or maybe a 406d though I didn't see the badge. I should have taken pictures, but I was pretty certain I didn't want it. There's certainly rust - around the windows and other joins. The rear window is missing, replaced by plywood. Everything inside has been removed, but it looks like a lot of it's there - seats, fridge, sink. I didn't hear it run. The exterior doesn't look too bad, and with a cleanup, some paint, and the seats put back in so it would be test driveable it should sell for more than you bought it for. Hell, you could even sell it to me!

Looks like a LOT of work. On the other hand, it's cheap, I bet they're willing to drop the price a bit, and where else are you going to find a 508d?"

What sort of fuel economy would that get? Cruising speed?

$1,395? If it wasn't 3,000 miles away I would buy it just to own it. I don't think I can justify doubling the value of the truck to go get it though. Very cool, thanks for the link.

Top speed is usually around 58mph. It is similar to Roy's. It could be a 408d or a 309d in addition to a 508d. Not sure on fuel economy, probably around 18mpg.
