the common these of partially converted busses is rust and the fact they want lots o money assuming the work of cutting out the seats is worth 1000s of dollars..

Anything further than that is great, but we are looking to do a lot of the finishing touches ourselves.

Please email me at FieryFreyr@gmail.com with what you have.
sir, taking the seats out is the easy part. are you sure your ready for this?

Taking the seats out isn't what I'm worried about. I could do that easily in a day. What I'm worried about, and what I'm talking about hoping to have done, is the stripping down beyond the seats to the outer shell so that the next step is proper insulation and the laying of the electrical work and plumbing. I've done my research and I'm fully aware of the commitment involved.

The issue is not what's "hard" or "easy". We both know we'll have more motivation and time to build up rather than to start by tearing down and then building up, so we're willing to look for what will work for us.

Also, I'm a M'am, not a sir.

Thanks for all of these! We've found a few in our area that we're going to go check out as well, so hopefully we're going to change our status to bus owners sooner than later.

This is actually the one we're checking out Friday! It really seems like a great deal overall, and exactly what we're looking for if everything checks out in person.

Whatever you are considering...drive it. Get it on the highway. Make some tight turns. Check out the brakes. I am constantly amazed at how many folks buy a pig in a poke.

Then, if it seems mechanically sound...spend some time crawling underneath. Some buses look great on the outside but are just about rusted through below. A "good deal" is only as good as the condition.
