Great bus and price but not insulated

I have a question. Think I have found a great bus, emphasis on think 😂
2001 International dt 466 with Allison trans. It is converted pretty much already and for 10 grand but isn’t insulated. Is that a deal breaker?
Thank you in advance for your expertise!

All depends on how you plan to use it. Living in it? Deal breaker. Camping in the spring and fall a few weekends? Could be ok.

It would be for me if I planned on spending considerable time in it. If you want it done correctly you will want to pull it all out and insulate it properly. Due to the rebuild needed I doubt I would be anywhere near $10K. If I was looking, that bus wouldn't get a second glance from me. Would help to know what kind of build out was done, there may be some salvageable items, but not at $10K

One thing I hear very often is "I wish I would've insulted a little more." Any time I see an "already converted" listing, I immediately question their insulation and what it would take to do it properly. I'd plan on using a conversion a good bit, so the added expense would pay off. Very little to no insulation doesn't make much sense to me unless you won't see extreme temperatures.

Thank you ALL for your advice!
We plan on traveling in it for the summer so I think I have my answer. Darn it!
Really wanted y’all to say differently!😁
