Looking for a coach

Hey all,

I haven't had a whole lot of luck finding anything through the usual channels within 1500 miles of me (In Minnesota), and figure I might as well just ask here if anybody has what I'm looking for.

I'm looking for a 35 or 40 footer (40 is ideal), coach preferred but flexible, diesel preferred but flexible. Ideally I'd find something that's partially converted, or completely converted. I'm 100% okay with renovating, and doing mechanical work.

Show me what you got!

I see buses on Craigslist that are partially finished fairly often, but none of those are coaches.

I rarely see anything on mine. Any recommendations for cities to search in the midwest where they pop up more often?

Coach is a preference for me, but I'm open to any mid/pushers that have storage bays.

For coaches most sellers seem to like ebay. You never know where the right bus will turn up.

I checked facebook, but was only able to find pages outside of the US, or pages for dealers. Have a link or recommendations on what to search for to find anything good? The page 'buses for sale' is completely blank.

Wow, everything on that page is better for me, and a better value for my money than ANYTHING I've looked at so far. Thank you so much! There's one about 60 miles from me that might suit my needs, at a price I can afford and still renovate.
