Starting to look

I am in need of some guidance or directions please. I am starting to look for a decent bus to do a conversion on. I have the plans drawn up in my head and have put them on graphing paper already and here is what I have come up with.

I will need a diesel pusher
at least a 80 pass bus
with under bus storage compartments (water storage tanks and waste storage tanks)

Now for where I am stumped. I can't seem to find any decent busses for sale that aren't beat to holy hell. Will someone please share ideas and or links on where to find decent buses and what to look for in the pictures before putting a deposit on one?

Also should I purchase one does anyone know if you have to have a CDL to drive it to my home state of Washington so I can begin my conversion on it? If so what would I have to do to it in order to get around the CDL requirement?

Hi Chad, welcome.

I don't know if WA offers this but here in VA they have a 3 day permit for only $5 that is purchased online and printed out.

Good luck!
