Might be, considering some manage to get the bus at an auction for around 2k. another 1-2k for insulation. It's also not yellow, so i don't have to paint it as well. I probably could get it to this stage with 4-5k and time. It's worth it to me. Looked at other converted ones that needed added insulation, bathroom and stove (altogether around 3k I guess), and they were at 12k and 16k on sale. So this sounds good to me in relation to work already done, time saved and equipment included.
I'm in Stuttgart, 1,5h (german highway speed time
) away from Darmstadt.
