Cool Looking for Converted bus in NC

Hi all. I am new here. Iím in NC and looking for a converted bus for about $10,000. I wouldnít mind a shorter bus but prefer a longer bus that has already been registered as an RV/Motorhome. The more self sustainable the better. Iím willing to do some cosmetic work. But it is just me and I work full time and run a business. I would appreciate any assistance as I am still learning. Feel free to send information, possible buses for sale, resources, etc. I am open to all. I am willing to travel to purchase. Thank you and Many Blessings . 🖤🖤🖤✨✨✨

Wow, with the price of buses going up in the last year to where $8k-$10k for just the bus is becoming a reality. Finding a converted bus to live in for $10k is a wild stretch. I can imagine very few scenarios where I would be interested in a converted bus for $10k.

Marc is right. There is no market for $10k skoolies. You will be buying someoneís nightmare at best.

Sure, you may get lucky. Something comes across once in a while. But unless you are very mechanically inclined, have tools and a place to work on it, have spare time, and very high risk appetite, you may want to reconsider.

Itís wiser to start off with a blank slate that is mechanically sound. Camping in a naked, but running, bus is a much better option than being stranded in a converted one.
