I don't know the specifics, but a friend was telling me something about shipping through ebay. You post what and where, and evidently various truckers can bid the job based on how well they can fit it into their schedules/routes. So if a trucker was running a dead head, he could pick up a load for the run home, and offer a better price. I suppose flexibility is key to getting a good price quote. Might be worth looking into...

Key,

I recall someone looking for a moho. Don't know if you've been involved in that search???

There's a decent 345 listed on ebay, located in Vegas.

Item number: 260881347451

Has anyone considered asking Good Sam, Camping World, FMCA, Escapees, etc.? They may be sources for folks who have had similar needs...can't hurt...I would(did) drive, myself, and called it 'learning'(and 'fun')...could be the guy has time issues...I'd consider taking it on, but I'd also probably take...oh...about 6-8 weeks to do it...mike

shipping?

We had friends that flew to Alaska and drove another person's TV/Trailer all the way to LA. Why not look to get new tires/brakes/etc. done in Florida, then pay someone to drive it/gas/motel/etc. to Caltifornia, and then fly them back to Florida. It might be cheaper...

Just my 2 cents

Sonia

That is a farmed site now. Not the real weship site. The domain is for sale.

I was contacted to give some insight and advice on the purchase, which i did..
They loved the little peanut so much they bought it!

They could:
Ship it.
Have it fixed and drive it back.

I have offered to do the driving and figure out what are the priority fixes for such a trip.... It is near Hollywood/Fort Lauderdale in Florida.. so 2800 miles to get it to its new home!
They had it inspected, and it needs:
Tires x 6, but they are 16" wheels, so easier to find methinks.
Both mufflers are holed, and it has a leaky manifold.
Radiator leak, and overflow reservior is cracked.
A full service and fluid changes.

Any suggestions for Tire/Muffler/Radiator shops in that area?

They will have to fix those items regardless so that part is free. Worst case, you have it shipped from where ever it dies. Battery(s) hoses, belts, brakes, filters, fluids, and hit the road. Should be a fun trip. Take pictures and keep us posted.
