NC in search of partial conversion

Ideally we would like to at least have the inside gutted down and ready to begin building up. I'm a law student and he's a grad student, so the gutting process isn't something we're sure we'd have the motivation to follow through with, but we're comfortable going from there.

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.

In central NC, but we're willing to travel basically anywhere along the east coast and a bit west if we find something we like and the seller can let us get our schedule in order.

I have a few places I've been checking regularly while looking for exactly what my wife and I want. I know I've seen a few advertised in this part of the country as partially converted, so I'll pass links for them along to you as I run back across them.

What size bus are you looking for? And are there any make or break features you're looking for/avoiding in your search?

- We're looking for a full size/large bus since it'll be the two of us as well as fur babies.
- Diesel is a must, as we're hoping to eventually convert to vegetable oil.
- We'd prefer there to be an emergency exit at the back so that we can make a "garage" of sorts where everything doesn't have to be neat and pretty.
- I really like light, so if the windows are changed or covered, I'd like there to be some kind of compensation for the lost light.

I've actually seen the two you posted, and we're going to view the second this coming Friday. The first one I'm not a fan of the way he insulated in the blue walls, since it just covers the windows and comes in from the sides rather than in-between the panels, if that makes sense.

Makes perfect sense.

I'll probably sit down and look though some more listings when I get home tonight after work.
