know what bus we want

well, The wife and I have done a TON of reading & research on here and have decided that we want a rear engine,flat nose bus thats 38-40ft long...gonna try and find one once we get moved to Huntsville,AL in Mid October...gonna try and see if we can find one between $2500-$5000(well, thats our goal anyhow) but we are in no rush...we have another storage facility we are going to be managing and getting that place up to par(or raising it to above par) comes first. but before to long I am gonna HAVE to have a tinker project or I will go stir crazy...that and we are dying to get started on a skoolie...lol. got to keep telling myself(and her too) to take our time and find the right bus that calls to us for our needs

Got the first box checked: Somewhere to stash the bus.

I bet other skoolie folk in that area may be interested in renting a spot.

Im on my serving bus. 2500 for a carpenter 5.9 Cummins. Now we have a 40 foot international rear engine very nice. Paid 2650. They are out there. Both of mine were purchased from bus sales companies. Western bus sales in Boring Oregon is the best sales company out there.
