New guy/family from centeral Indiana

Would like to say hi. Be looking at building a skoolie for years kinda came and went. But now set to build one. Planning to sell house and be in one a year or two. Was dead set last night on one I wanted but after reading not real sure on a maxxforce powered bus. Had planned a delete but ecu flash is expensive and had not found out if even doable. We are looking for a pusher with overdrive. But until then will keep reading and looking.

Thanks for the offer but she pretty insistent on designing the inside plus it be a few yrs plugging what money we have into it. But that is a sweet bus.

I work for a major RV component supplier. My employee pricing will come in handy whenever I get to building

Hello good sir! Born in Fort Wayne, lived in Indianapolis for 5 years while building a tiny house on wheels. Now, I'm bored and need a new project. In Florida now for 3 months - kind of migrating with the house. I'm hoping to buy a bus next week.

By the way, I was looking and there's a bus available in March out of Whitestown, IN for a decent price. Might be something to look at. I thought if I were home and hadn't found a bus I'd grab it, but I think I found a good one down here.

Used 2001 International Blue Bird - Whitestown IN Near Kankakee IL - Midwest Transit
