Buying a bus. Need some advice

Hi everyone,

I was thinking on purchasing a school bus and turning it into a mobile business. But Iím not sure what to look for? Are there specific areas I should look at? Engine, model, year or miles? Any advice would be much appreciated.

All of those areas need addressing. I would recommend you spend the next 30 days doing nothing but reading every single thing on this forum you can. It will help you tremendously answer your questions. I recommend doing this before you start asking the typical noob questions that have been addressed a million times here already. The search function above works quite well.
Go to the UserCP in the upper left and fill out your profile so we know where you are. It'll help get more accurate answers to your questions. Welcome to the addiction.

This question has been asked dozens of times and has lots of info. Your question of “what do I look for” isn’t going to generate more useful responses than what has already been posted unless you make it a little more focused.

What type of mobile business do you want to run? Are you setting up a food truck? A mobile vetinarian clinic? Are you a traveling salesman that needs to display merchandise and close sales inside your vehicle?
