Default Where to find Class 8s for sale ?

Aside from the 'for sale' section on this website and searching 'RacingJunk.com' where else have some of you found your Class 8 Coach Conversions?

I assume ebay is a source, but I'm not sure what search parameters to use.

i have some bot's that run against & look for listings in the RV section on ebay.
it'll give you daily emails about listings & new listings.

I use the following key word searches:

Haulmark's, Renegades, Showhaulers, United Specialities, dynamax

also keep an eye on some of the dealers - they get consignments & trades fairly often.
I picked up ours via a consignment/listing at Flying A.

Trailers for Sale, Aluminum Trailers, Race Trailer, Motorcycle Trailers, Toterhomes, Enclosed Trailers For Sale, Stacker Trailers
New/Used Motorhomes/Toterhomes

this guy (used to be called south texas fun center or something) used to get quite a few toters and coaches. I think STxFC merged w/ North San Antonio Fun Movers or they used to be friends or something (they would refer buyers between themselves if one had something the other didn't.

In this google street view you can see a toter - http://goo.gl/maps/aWO7r

Seguin RV
San Antonio Fun Motors

Seguin RV will advertise their stuff via Ebay (usually via buy it now) you can add them to your watch / bot list as a favorite seller to get alerted when they have new listings.

http://myworld.ebay.com/ebaymotors/seguin_rv/

Id recommend calling Matt at Seguin to see if theyre stilling picking up toters or hints on where they were getting 'em from (most of the ones i looked at had california origins).

There are some dealers that specialize in truck conversions too. Eldorado Trailer Sales in Wisconsin. Westside Motorcoach in Illinois. I'm sure there are more.

RGDL,
If you are thinking of bringing one into Canada, make sure you have done your homework as to what is legal to import.
Renegade, NRC, Haulmark are a few that are allowed.
Here is a link with most of the info on it.
