While I don't have a direct answer to your question, I can tell you this much... smoke (or steam) coming out of the motor at any time in any place is NOT normal... I'd be VERY cautious of this bus...

You just might be a Redneck if...
...your motor home used to be a school bus!
...Your living room has a steering wheel!
...Your home has brake lights

I am fairly certain that is normal behavior. My semi has done that from the day I got it (new). 270,000 miles on it now and no major problems yet!

white smoke? As far as I know white never indicates oil smoke, oil would be black / blueish.
White normaly stands for something waterbased, coolant or just moister build up from sitting around.
