Howdy From Houston!

My girlfriend and I work in the industrial world in sales and engineering down here in Houston, TX. We first thought about spending some time in a Sprinter, but after looking around and doing somewhat of a cost benefit analysis, it appears your money goes much further with a bus. Hoping to buy one in the next year or two and begin the conversion. Looking for a Type C or Type D. Have been cruising publicsurplus and Craigslist for possible options. All suggestions are welcome, and wanted!

Welcome!

I lived in Houston for many years and hope to be moving back soon! Being a big city there are plenty of places to buy a skoolie from in the area!

I saw a bus down here in Alvin last week Aaron. It was on 1462, just south of Alvin. I will take a look this weekend and if it is there, I will send you some pics. BTW. Welcome to The CRAZIES !!!

Howdy from El Paso

Hi there, nice to see another Texan on this or any site. This is my first post as well, but when I saw that you're from Houston, I thought I'd say, "hey!"

Hey Aaron! You might see my bus out on the road today on I-10. I'm headed to Blumenthal's for a quote on some work. They're close to downtown. See ya out there!

Some very good deals on solid buses to be had right here in the Houston area directly from the school districts. You'll pay what the scalpers pay plus often have access to the maintenance records.
