Buying a first bus
We have found a 1978 gillig we want to buy on the east coast, to do a simple conversion (read very basic systems-- DC power or even just headlamps and flashlights propane stove and maybe fridge, woodstove for heat, composting toilet). Anyway, is there anything in particular we should look for as far as a 1978 gillig goes. The owners say the engine was rebuild and has 14k. They did say there is a small transmission fluid leak. Other than that they swear by the bus's condition...
I'd appreciate any thoughts about purchasing a first bus.
