Hahaha!!! I looked into it... indeed you were right... most have been fixed with anything and everything including the kitchen sink, and in some cases, rubber bands and chewing gum too!!!

So at 61 am just finding out, all those beautiful cars, are nothing more than a concoction of original recipes made of man made ingredients and by some brilliant and highly creative chefs.

I've found getting to know the basics and sticking to older, serviceable vehicles is the best recipe for motoring success. Newer stuff has been a nightmare.
My 2013 Subaru is the worst purchase I've ever made. My 87 Chevy pickup is a dream to own.

Boring (and mobile) in a motorhome is a LOT better then being homeless.
You can always paint, decorate, and re-upholster.

Someone from Creative Bus Sales just contacted me. Let’s see what happens.

Meanwhile has anyone heard from Matt (Hazz.Matt) .. sooo strange, I have tried
contacting (PM) him for a few days but hasn’t responded. I hope he’s alright. His silence is disturbing!

Well, I guess I will have to if something other than that doesn’t magically appear
by the end of the week.

And the Subaru commercials are so cute too!! The dog theme was a prize winning decision for the ad campaign company. Think they just started rerunning the campaign again.

They show puppy dogs and evoke emotional stuff but their cars suck azzzzz.
Mine chugs oil, has been through three sets of tires and a clutch in 68k miles.
Its a total grocery getter and driven as such.
The paint is 1990's GM-quality. As in- it doesn't do much and chips from looking at it too hard.
The interior is spartan at best. No sound insulation at all, the seats are horrid, and the ac is piss poor.
Its slow and only gets around 24mpg which imo is shitty for an "economy" car. As of a month or so ago though its paid for and thanks to the puppy dogs its resale is decent. Hard to find a 5 speed manual. I had to order mine from Japan.

Unless they're selling converted buses I don't see how they are going to solve your dilemma. Unless living in a metal tent is more appealing than the "macho" coaches or rv's.

Sure- some company will gladly take your 50 grand and give your bus some Lowes counter tops, a few Ikea bits, some rustoleum in "conversion blue", and be done in a few months. But that seems like a foolhardy way to avoid homelessness.
I think you're looking for affirmation that living in a used school bus is your best bet when I don't think many will agree. That may be why you're losing audience.

You're looking for a complete conversion to your personal taste and with roof raise and overhead loft. That's gona be a massive undertaking and you will not be living in said bus for many months and its going to take way more than thirty g's to make that happen.
