Hey from Sacramento!

Hi I am currently trying to find a 30-40 FT bus and am wondering where are people getting their buses and how much are they paying? of course with year/make/size and miles and all that good info. Thanks! I hope to be starting my project soon from Bus to Off-grid mini home/ mini cooper tower

Anyone have any comments on bus pricing and what I should expect to pay?

$2,500 - $7,500 is a good range that is ballpark what most people pay. It could be more for something exotic/newer/nice/older/rare or less for something that needs a lot of work. Occasionally people snag up a great deal on a good bus at an auction or from someone who doesn't really know the value of what they have.

A few months back I was driving west bound on I80 & just west of Watt ave I saw a bus yard on the North side there & they had a Crown sitting up against the fence, with just the new regs go there & talk to the head Mech & see what their plans are.

I'll have to check that bus yard out could be promising?!.... I'm pretty sure with this idea of getting a bus and trying to make it a home and as off grid as possible I'm either insane or brilliant not sure which yet.....but we shall see
