What do you think?


I'm looking for a bus and I'm almost ready to buy. The problem is there are very few good options in Canada. And importing from the US is not a process that I'm willing (time and $) to do.

What do you think of these busses:

Thanks in advance for your insights.

I am by far no expert, having just joined this community and the Skoolie idea this year. I don't know much about the Cat diesels, which ones are good or bad. But based on the amount of work needed and the asking prices of those 4 examples, I would be looking very hard at the '02 Blue Bird. Great price, and all the initial gutting work has already been done. I lucked into my 40ft RE 8.3 Cummins for about $1800. It was already well on its way to Skoolie life. 159K km is less that 100K miles, that's very low on a diesel. $2750 Ca is about $1900 US. Right about where I landed. That gives a lot of spending room for making it what you want.
