Re: New and looking for a bit of advice
If your not going to move it much, just find the right bus body wise. If you look for a specific engine and transmission it can make the price of the bus pretty high. The bus isnt even the most expensive part on a lot of builds. Wherever you are from, insulation is something that you will need, and that alone can cost over 2 grand easily. Are you looking for a short or long bus? Flatnose or conventional (dog nose)? Being parked most of the time, I am guessing you are going to have shore power most of the time, so you probably dont need a generator, that is a expensive item. Make sure to read a lot of build threads. For a bus, if you want one cheap, Craigslist, and goverment auctions (Publicsurplus.com, govdeals.com, ect) are good places to look.
