Schoolie or a Bus? In other words does it have to be a skoolie and what's your budget................

uhm...I donīt know if I follow you. You mean converted skoolie or another converted bus as a greyhound or MCI? I prefer skoolie and with not covered windows if it is possible (I will probably regret in arizona in summer, but now I prefer keep the windows)
My idea is a converted skoolie, no more than 30ft but I have no preferences (or knowledge) about models, noses, engines...I think I will need to get what is in the market. Something around 8k or 10k would be fine, and I need to keep extra budget for surprise mechanic issues. I would like my bus doesnīt die in the first six months.

I'm sure you wouldn't but I am aware of a Crown for sale that hasn't been fully converted it's very very nice.................and within your budget. And you won't have to budget anything for future repairs and if so nothing significant or Major like trans or engine etc.............PM me I'll shoot you a few photo's............it won't be around long I assure you: PM me and I'll send along a couple shots.......or just hit up mokibrabrant@aol.com

Hey there Valhalla. I w a s hoping you could help with some insurance/registration information. I live very near you (in va) and am having difficulties. We have a bus and can't find insurance/get it titled as rv. How did you achieve these step when constructing Valhalla? Thanks for any info.

I just spoke to our insurance company (USAA) and they do not cover any school bus (converted or not). I live in Texas, but this is a rule across the nation for this company. They did give me RV Insurance Online Quote | Explorer RV to try to find someone. Also I read on another forum someone used Farm Bureau/State FArm/FArmers insurance...I can't remember but it had farm in the name. I hoe this helps as we are about to buy or bus too...but want to get the insurance Q's answered. I don't really care if something happens to the bus b/c we can fix it or whatever..i am just worried about getting in a wreck and hurting someone else. But they don't provide any liability for skoolies or any transit bus converted, unless it is converted through a rv manufacturer..but what fun would that be? good luck in your search!
