Thumbs up Starting to look for a bus...

Hi, I'm Naomi. I'm just getting into the skoolie thing, because I need a massage studio I can take with me to events and fairs. (Don't ask; there's a lot of thought that went into trying to fill that particular market niche. I can't really find another that works for me.) So I first began looking at Tiny Houses On Wheels, and then into bus conversions. I'm not sure yet if I'll be actually converting a true school bus -- it depends on internal dimensions. I do need for adult clients to be able to stand up in it!! But I may buy a school bus and raise the roof, as many people here do; or I may buy an old coach bus. Not sure yet.

Any and all advice about how to find and select a good bus for the purpose is very much appreciated!! I don't have a CDL but would be willing to get one if I have to, which I understand is relatively likely if I get a coach instead of a school bus. Also anything that I should know to think about, regarding details of conversion. I'm a babe in arms about this stuff, and very glad to be surrounded by experts here.

Thank you all! You're awesome.
