All 27passengers walked away.... Checked out at hospital for bumps & bruises! Some listed in stable condition, no life threatening injuries

Looking for a bus that's just come out of service. will assist you in the build. Buses are built to be driven 24/7/365. So the less time it's had to sit idle the less the bonded seams will harden, which means less leaks and things accumulating where they shouldn't.

Search Youtube for RV renovations. You will quickly see how poorly the "affordable" ones are made. I actually blame the RV industry. They build overpriced crap that makes owners want to constantly replace or "upgrade". Now, if you consider Marathon or Newell coaches RVs, they're the real deal. But for more than $2 million they oughta be!

Good luck whichever direction you choose!

Quality quality quality! And safety!
If you build the bus yourself you will know exactly how it goes together, comes apart, and what to fix. You can build it just like you want. My mom keeps asking me to look at a factory built rv instead of taking my time to build our bus... How many motor homes do you see running around with a queen bed in the back, a bunk room with 3 bunks, and an extra large bunk above the driver for 3 more kids? Yeah right plus they are called stick and staples fit a reason!

Yep it's not unique to America either. Except we have manufacturers trying to legislate self builds out of the equation in Australia.

+1 on the you build it you know every nut bolt pop rivet. You also control the engineered limits of the vehicle. Want to be able to roll it and walk away, fit a roll bar. Haven't as yet seen any factory rv even with a roll bar as an option.
