All the good reasons listed above are exactly why you should build a Skoolie. Just be very realistic about the potential repair costs of running a Medium Duty vehicle. Especially if its a modern electronically controlled injection system on the engine. Injection pumps and injector replacements can be an easy 2-5000.00 repairs. Just the nature of the beast. No different that a 3500 pick up truck... that being said just because you got the bus cheap doesn't mean you can expect cheap repairs. If you buy a MaxxForce International you could see invoices much larger than above and still have an unreliable engine. You also do not want any of them newer than 2007 if they have after-treatment (emissions control) in the exhaust and require DEF. Those systems malfunction far more than they ever work properly after they are several years old.
