I bought a BUS?!!!

Hello all, my name is Jeff. I thought I'd join the forum because yesterday I bought a 2000 International Bus Conversion. Three weeks ago I never dreamed I'd do such a thing; but I guess when I came across it, I just couldn't let this little gem go to some other family.

I have zero experience with motor-homes or buses, so I'm hopeful this is a welcoming and helpful community.

Of course I understand that forums need pictures to make it more fun, so I will work on getting some pics. posted soon.

I hardly slept last night... I can't believe I bought a bus. Tell me I'm not crazy!

Welcome.
Did you do your due diligence, and find places to keep it, someone to insure it, etc?
These aren't something to buy willy-nilly...
Crazy? maybe but we're a bag of mixed nuts here already!

Busses are awesome. Don't let anyone be a negative-nancy and bring you down.

Pics or it didn't happen.

Oh you're going to be slightly consumed by ideas now... Hahaha
Congrats! So is it a fully functioning conversion?

Negativity and realism are not the same thing.

As for diligence, yes. I have space to keep it in my yard, and I made sure it was titled as a motor-home and insurable. Insurance wasn't the easiest to come by, but GMAC (National general) insured it very reasonably.

It is a full functioning conversion. It needs a couple small repairs though. Dash cluster is out, turn signals aren't blinking, and windshield has a crack.
