ClassyGlobal on Wheels?

So I'm an unemployed female army vet (OIFx4 & OEFx2) with a dog leaning toward flexibility and mobility.

From 900sqft (of which I only use 25% of) to about 200? Too easy!

I'm here to share and hope learn as I decide on a bus or a shuttle van. Living here in the MidAtlantic.

I'd go for a transit-style bus (about 240 sq ft). Basement storage and almost clear floor plan (IF you discount the four wheel humps). I managed to find another one for $5K and only 111K miles.

Thanks CaptSquid. I am mentally stalking a couple of keen Chevy 4500 Startrans 12 seaters that have curbside rear lifts. Wondering if anyone has any objection to Startran builds or Chevy 4500 cutaways???

Welcome home and welcome to the madhouse! --- Just try to find the best bus you can for your purpose going in and the rest will be a cakewalk. If you are in the mid-Atlantic...crawl all over anything you find for rust.

Best of luck and let the adventure begin!

Hello and welcome! I'm pretty new to this and have found that govdeals.com and publicsurplus.com are great places to start looking. Where in the mid atlantic are you? I saw this one that says new brakes and tires Although only about 15 hours left on the auction currently....
