Skoolie Pricing

It's amazing how used bus prices have gone through the roof. It was just 2-3 years ago there were many good deals on the desirable, non EPA, skoolies from the mid 90's- early 2000's, for $1500- $3000. Now it seems so many here are looking at buses in the 2010-2015 models and paying $10-$15k for a starter. I'm glad I found mine when I did.

I Thank God That He Gifted Me with Common Sense

Can you say INFLATION?
Most everything needed or wanted has gone up in astronomical amounts for the time's.
The whole covid crapola we are in hasn't helped.
Have the national wages increased to make the higher cost of living bearable?
Doesn't seem so, although I've been retired awhile now and haven't kept up on working wages either.

So x2 on glad I got into the hobby at an earlier/more affordable point in time...
