Hello From Utah!!

Hello all,

My wife and I are looking to buy a bus and get it converted for us since we do not have the time or space to do it ourselves. It is just us two and our two dogs. We went ahead and placed ourselves in a situation that will put us in the Skoolie life whether we are ready or not! So here we go

Has anyone here used Blue Ridge Conversion before? We are looking at purchasing a bus from Florida and driving it to NC but are not mechanically inclined enough to know whether it is a good buy. There is rust that has accumulated in the engine bay that worries me. If anyone has a chance to take a look for me and let me know if it would be worth it that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!

Welcome from Utah

Greatings
Im building mine in Stansbury Park.
I took a look at that bus in Florida, did you already buy it?
Anyway, welcome to the community, great people here, you will learn a lot. If you have any questions send me a note.

How much do they want for it, and what does it look like underneath?

It looks really nice. . .until you get to the engine bay.
I wouldn't say that it's a dealbreaker in any way, just something to be aware of.

Hello and welcome! I didn't see a price but it certainly looks nice. Rear engine busses are prone to nasty engine bays. Its also gonna need tires which are a pretty penny. Good luck!
