Keep looking... there's good deals out there, even close to home. You're right though a long trip can get expensive real quick, especially with diesel at 3.70/gallon. Might be a good idea to put down the $100 and have them hold it but keep looking for a great deal. If you find one get your $100 bucks back.
Where do you live? Maybe someone nearby knows a good source of buses.
I got my straight from the school district also... well from the bus dealer that took it on trade. I was able to talk to the bus mechanics before I picked out my bus. As soon as the dealer got the bus on they're lot I picked it up a few hours later. I had a great experience, and I'd recommend anyone looking for a bus to check with their local bus dealer and ask if they have any coming in on trade.
