newbie - looking to purchase first bus and need advice
A group of friends and I are about to go in on a bus together to convert to an RV of sorts. We are leaning towards an early 90's Crown, because they are beautiful. Anyhow, I am looking for advice. What are some things I should know to really not do, or do. ie > something like - stay away from the 1993 Idaho model, notorious for transmission problems. stuff like that.
Also, what are some questions I should ask to be an educated buyer. We are looking at an initial investment of about 3 or 4 grand. A retired school bus.
If it is pertinent, we live in Colorado. Our first hurdle is getting it reclassified from a Commercial vehicle to an RV. For Colorado, there is the '4 of 6 rule', which I would be happy to delineate on... as I spend my morning chasing the DMV and State Troopers office (the ultimate decider on the title).
anyhow, any advice would be super appreciated.
thanks in advance,
