This is a great time. I teach online and decided why sit behind a desk in a house when I could be out on the road exploring.
I have about 3-4 months to go then I am selling everything and hitting the road.

I picked up a nice 2000 International 8 window bus (28 feet from bumper to bumper). It is being painted now - and should be fully converted within the next month.

I spent a lot of time looking at bus sizes - and types. There are so many out there. I watched a lot of YouTube bus conversions - and then worked out how much space I comfortable needed.

You found the right site for information. Make that dream a reality!

We started with a rough floor layout and figured out the minimum length we needed to make it work. Then we just began to look online for buses. Found a good one in a govt auction and went for it. Each make has its advantages and I'm sure many have strong opinions. I was more concerned with the engine and the condition of the body. Good luck, I hope it works out for you!
