Thanks, Drew and Brad.
I guess it is kind of a flipper I am looking for, an honest flipper, with the added part of someone also willing to talk about needs before settling on what to find.
I wonder what the details would be, in terms of fee, when it would be paid (upon finding bus? Hours put in?) Also if it would be safe to also hire the person to pick up and deliver if it is too far for me to travel (my toddler stays with me).
Someone connected me with a person with a lot of experience in a private message. I will send them a message when I have more time. Would welcome any other public or private recommendations for person who may be good and interested.
As to needs and what I think I am looking for, I am a mom to a toddler and halftime two stepsons. We live in New York City and will need to parallel and street park, so, have to stay short. But I can build in Rhode Island at my grandmaís where I go regularly. Thinking a bed that folds up with three seat belts in the back and a captains chair that a front facing car seat can strap to. Want space for basic cooking and would love to fit a wood stove. Have been looking on the auctions for a pre 2004 diesel shortie. I know the engines and trannies that folks like but am not confident I know enough. Still wonder if for us gas could make more sense.
Thanks for reading.
