Being a skoolie owner....

maybe i have unrealistic expectations, but i bet that the sale price is close to the amount of money the PO spent on it.

can you do it cheaper yourself? nicer? in your allotted time?

i think the price sounds reasonable, and gas is super cheap now.

for a comparable moterhome, its not bad

I agree. I didn't think it was that bad. Could I do it cheaper myself? probably not, no.

I thought this would be pretty cool, though. I imagine this kind of thing has already taken one or two steps in the right direction:

I don't think I could do it cheaper myself - not in a reasonable amount of time, anyway.

I think my best bet will be to buy an already converted skoolie, and hire out the mechanical repairs/upgrades, and modify the interior myself.

That is a lot of rust.

But the 10kW Onan Quiet Diesel genset is worth more used than the current $450 bid for the whole bookmobile. . . . .

forgive my ignorance - very new to this. There is indeed a lot of rust, and I know that it can spread. Is there anything that can be done to stop/remove it?

That amount of money for that small bus? I paid $8K for a much larger bus and I have to work on the interior myself.
