Question ISO Type B Shorty, P-30/Workhorse - Advice Wanted!

Hello,

I am a Nor-Cal Gal SUPER excited about my impending bus-life I've been working 4 jobs 6 days-week for 6 months and counting to save up for my bus and conversion.

So my questions are -- how often do you see a Bluebird Minibird/Thomas P-30/Workhorse from the later 90s - 2002, in good driving condition, low-to-no rust, > 200k miles - come up? Are they difficult to find in good condition? What would you say is a fair price range for this type of bus, from a seller or at auction? Any advice on where to look or knowledge of specific listings?

Thanks in advance for your advice! I'm so grateful for this forum, reading through here has really given me the faith I need to fully pursue this dream.

Love,
Carrie

There were just a bunch of shorties in CA on govdeals. Nice older stuff in great shape for dirt cheap as usual!
Just watch the auctions. You CA are lucky at least when it comes to bus selection.
