They're not any "easier" to work on than a "freightliner" style bus. It's still a bus.
If you're in Texas don't even waste your time looking at buses on the East coast, that's literally the worst part of the country to buy a bus in. Go look in AZ/NV/NM where you'll actually get something that's rust free and decent spec for a quarter of the asking price of that scrap pile in NJ.
I just really liked the style of the body, that’s what won me over. Well and also that it was a diesel. Also being on a heavy duty gm chassis, will be easier to convert into 4x4 rather than a freight liner. Which again, with patience, I found a heavy duty truck yard locally that said when I was ready, they will have a front drive axle for my bus to convert. Overall, yea I’m so much happier with the bus I purchased, little to no rust and a biiiig reliable engine.
