I'm looking for a school bus to convert into a mobile studio for my wife.
Based on what I have read, the DT motors are the most reliable and best for the mountains where I live.
So I'm looking for
DT-466 engine, pre 2007- no maxxforce
Heavier duty transmission geared for highway- can be auto or standard
would prefer a rear engine, but that is flexible
between 10-13 window size
under bus storage would be ideal
minimal rust and in good mechanical condition- the body cosmetics do not need to be nice
a bus that can be imported into Canada- see link
150 thousand mile cap
I'm losing a bit on the USA exchange rate, but I could go up to 15k, but obviously the lower the better lol.
I am flexible on most things, and am looking for a bus I can drive across Canada without worrying about it exploding.
I'm limited to certain models for import, but its not too bad. Pretty much any BlueBird is ok and most International body after 2004-
Here is a link with an overview of what is allowed
Section 7.0 - School Buses
If you point me in the right direction and I purchase a bus because of your tips, I will send you cash money based on the value of the bus.
