Re: Wow, I am so happy to discover this site!

There are several of us here in the Austin area. One with a short bus in Oak hill and a couple of us in the lake Travis area. $3k will buy you a nice bus, figure on about $1500 for a nice cozy conversion if you are frugal. I have a 40' flat front. I like it very much.

Re: Wow, I am so happy to discover this site!

Yep, and there's another guy out in Wimberly, "swhite832" who's rockin' a serious roof rack on his skoolie. There are a couple auction companies you might want to check out that run bus auctions around Texas: www.renebates.com and www.lemonsauctioneers.com. If you buy at an auction it's a bit of a crapshoot. You get a good price, but hard to know the quality of the bus. Make sure to bring someone mechanically inclined along to inspect the buses before bidding. I ended up going to a dealer in Kansas to get mine, but I was looking for something very specific.
