Looking for short buses in upstate NY area

Hey,

So, I found a bus I want to buy on another site, but I'm worried that by the time I can get the money together, it'll be gone
I emailed the guy and he said some other people were interested, so I want to keep my options open. Is anyone selling/know some who's selling any minibuses ready for conversion?
Or any resources for finding people who are?

Thanks

That's pretty awesome, but I'm looking to do the conversion myself. I'm rethinking my original plan though... if this one is already partially converted and only $2800, why would I buy an unconverted one for the same price?

Some of the worst work is done...seats out, title converted to RV and currently insured.....kind of irons out some of the details that can be maddening. If it were me, I would be looking to redo much of it, but it is a good start and useful right away.

That is a good point... I think I'll contact them.

Thanks for the link! I never would have found it, I'm a slow searcher

For a Wide-net type of search on Craigslist I use http://www.searchtempest.com/ It's not perfect and has quite a few odd bits about it, but it does a nice broad strokes kinda search over as wide an area as you like.
