I am a newbie as well. My husband and I just purchased a bus from http://www.floridachurchbus.com
. Greg Archambault, the owner,
is very very knowledgeable about all kinds of buses, and has very fair prices. I know a few other people from other conversion
sites who have gone through his service as well, and he is very highly recommended. I know that when we purchased our
Carpenter/Crown bus in October he had a surplus of shorties- so maybe you'll be in luck!
Hope this helps.
