Hi, I'm Hernan and this is my first post. I'm looking for help. I have an idea to convert a school bus into an RV to travel with the family.
This particular bus has a Detroit engine 1996 with 200K miles. I think it's a lot of miles, but I've heard that diesel engines can go 500k miles easy ??? It may also be the engine is fine, but what about the transmission, how long it can be ok? The bus in the picture looks good, but I did not see him in person yet.
So my question is worth to buy a bus and with 200k miles for about $5K?
I would also like to know if I have reason to legally be a "mobile home" or RV must have a toilet, kitchen, sink and bed mounted permanently. I am right?
Thanks in advance for any contribution and very nice place and the community here.
