Where are you guys finding buses??

I have been living between govdeals.com, Craigslist, and public surplus for quite some time and just canít seem to find a bus that I can win a bid on or buy outright.

Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance!

Just gotta keep bidding till you win one. I bid on a dozen or so a year and maybe win one.

Patience! I was browsing public surplus and govdeals on and off for a couple years. Then I ended up buying my bus on facebook marketplace

As stated, it takes time and patience to find the right bus.
Maybe you'll need to allocate more funding if you're getting outbid on a regular basis?
Anyhoo, good luck and keep on bidding...
