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.
