Re: Time Is Money.....
While I am not by any means done with my bus, I'm planning to spend about $6000 total. That's my "budget" amount, so I'm sure it'll be more. This includes $1250 I gave for the bus itself, $75 for four captain's chairs and couch from a conversion van (as well as miscellaneous other parts off of it), and $180 for a pair of heated leather seats and leather rear seat from a 2001 Chevy Impala. That's all I've purchased and paid for. What I intend to purchase and approximate $$$$ amounts are: entertainment (head unit, amp, speakers, TV, etc) -about $1000, new doors and windows-about $400, wood and insulation-about $300, stuff from the donor RV (tanks, etc)-about $100. There's going to be some metal work and whatnot somewhere in the neighborhood of $1000 I figure. We'll need roof air and a genset...probably in the $1500 range together for both of them. I hope I can make what we need on that money! Our bus is for carting our family around and doing some camping with our horses. When it's all said and done, we should be able to haul 11 passengers, driver, water, etc, and pull a 3-4 horse trailer...at least that's the plan!
