I finally have a lead in my exhaustive search. A local elementary school is getting rid of a short bus, and I, obviously, am in the short bus adoption market.
I am absolutely green to taking in stray short buses. I know from talking to various and sundry traveling folk that anything with < 100,000 miles on the engine in preferable, and a bus that was recently in the school circuit is probably well maintained.
I don't know what else to ask about, though
Do you guys have any tips? Anything I should bring up when I go on my first date with this potential suitor?
The guy from the school told me that it runs on gas. What, in your experience, is the pro/con of gas vs diesel? I've heard that diesel tends to get better mileage and be easier on the vehicle. It would also be cool to get a diesel because there is the potential for veggie oil conversion, which would be pricey to do correctly, but most definitely bad ass.
