Budget expectations? Howdja doit?

I've been putting off this question, looking through the forum for "budget" and such, but now's the time to bite the bullet and just ask...

For those of you who built "homes" (not just occasional camp living spaces)
  • How did you guys budget for your bus? Did you have a plan, or just work as you went?
    What cost range did you set for yourselves, and did you keep on-target?
    Were there any surprise expenses?
    What was the most expensive item you purchased (besides the bus)?
    What was the total cost of the vehicle and mechanical fixes to make it road worthy?

Sorry if this is prying, but while I know I'm willing to spend at least $5k for the bus & repairs, I have no idea if that's reasonable... and the rest is a mystery.

Any advice is good advice.
