I am going to get rid of all of them, but was thinking I might be able to get a little cash to help with my build. Saw others selling them on craigs list, but not sure if they had any luck. I will let you know if I decide I just need to dump them!

I am just a girl, doing it on my own too. I will be enlisting my friends to help, but that does not always go as planned. I have two years to get this finished before I hit the road as a travel nurse. I think I can make it happen by then. Thank you for the encouragement. I am feeling the Oh crap moment today. I bought a bus!!

Thank you Christopher. I thought it was very cool. Cannot wait to make it into my home. I thought the idea was to get rid of the seats!

I might be interested in several of them (and help with removal when I visit Houston next). I'm planning to convert mine into a party-wagon and this would save me a lot of time and cost.

my bus is a cruiser.. I carry work stuff and then drive it on road trips.. and when im home, friends and i use it to go out places together.. it started with me almost always being the DD for our outings as i only drink once in a while.. so when I got the bus everyone was like "big time DD" .. its also great for going to events and such where parking is a premium..ive found many events welcome busses.. or like at the christmas-light drive thru's last year.. they waived us through for free(we ended up making a donation) as they thought it was cool a bunch of guys got a red and white school bus and were out having fun...

I just finished cols OH - Knoxville - Macon - Orlando - Asheville NC - St pete - Cols OH 15 day work and play road trip in it...

Christine,

I thought the same thing too. All I got for all my seats was $15 from the scrap man. Not much call for used bus seats I have found in my experiences. I'd just be interested in one from each side of the bus to make my dinette. You might want to keep a set for doing the same thing. Just a thought.

brad - on way down I thought I read where you were out of town. Way back friday I had to get back, no worries I'll be back and forth soon so we just need to coordinate where I can stop in

I think that I can part with two seats! I will let you know when I actually start pulling them out.

That is awesome use of your ride. Let me know if you make it my way. Maybe I will still have some seats around.
