Looking for advice.
I am looking at this bus:
This previous thread lays out my situation a little bit.
Looking to convert a skoolie for family adventure travel. I am not a mechanic and will need to hire-out much of the early conversion work.
Priorities for me are shorter wheelbase (so we can get into more campsites) and a rear-engine (maximize interior room, reduce noise, etc.). Originally, I was focused on Thomas HDXs.
This is a midship engine. Super cool looking and I've heard great things about Crown quality.
How much more difficult will it be to convert, and then maintain, this 1990 Crown,...compared to a newer Thomas, IC, or Bluebird RE?
