You should both have a look at those Bluebird Wanderlodge... Best of both worlds, a rv for her, a bus for you!

There's a couple of them on eBay... here's one with a new CAT engine:

My bus is for sale, quite some distance from where you are at though. It is not 100% complete, but close to it. Tell her it has a passenger seat too!!

ryncole... Thanks for the phone call, always interesting to put a voice on an internet contact. If you want to see more pictures, go to www.gonecamping.net/images/bus and you'll find a few hundred pictures taken through various stages of the building process...

I also have a passanger seat, thats easy to do. The gonecamping bus looks nice. I dont think you could come close to buying a bus and replicating that one, not even considering the time to do it, for the price he is asking.

Re: want skoolie wife wants rv-advice?complete one for sale?

show her photos of a school bus after a rollover accident, or after colliding with a train. She'll be able to see how the body of the bus is still almost completely intact.....Looks like in most of the photos the buses didn't even suffer a broken window










then show her photos of a typical RV after a similar accident. Nothing but toothpicks! here's a few different motorhome accidents i found

a picture is worth a thousand words.....or $1,000,000 in hospital bills if you are in an rv.
