Hello!

Ive been reading the forum for a few weeks and just wanted to say hi! My family of 3 plans to be in a bus within 3 years. Were looking for a 40 rear engine bus. We plan to live in it full time for a couple of years. Due to the ease of transition from house to bus, were looking for something already converted or partially converted that we can finish in a decent amount of time. Anyway, thanks for your breadth of knowledge! Ill be lurking in the background reading or asking stupid questions

Just make sure anything you look at has been properly gutted and insulated. IMHO, if you get one that isn't you will have more work ahead removing everything to correctly start from scratch. Your comfort in your new home is wholly dependent on insulation comfort. I believe many of these for sale are being sold because after they were done they realized how uncomfortable it is with no insulation.
