Kind of new here, but found this site while researching buses to buy, fantastic tool for people trying to research ideas, been reading for months until I actually joined. I searched for a bus for about three months, until I finally found one that was in fairly good shape in my $2-$3000 price range. Drove up to 2 1/2 hours a couple of times to look at some, man, what people show you on the web is not even close to what they are trying to sell! Anyway, ended up finding one twenty minutes from home. When I found out it had the Powerstroke 7.3 diesel, pretty much knew I found the one I wanted. Finally pulled the trigger when I got it closer to the bottom end of what I was looking for price wise, back in November. Too cold this winter to do anything yet, so now that the sun is beginnging to shine, going to get started on what I can for now.
My plan is to make a tailgater out of it for football as well as camping. For right now, I am planning on keeping four of the bus seats, swapping one from each side so they face each other and putting a table in between them. Then I want to either get rid of the remaining seats, or keep them, tear the vinyl and padding off and re-upholster them with fresh vinyl and go all the way to the back. Right now I am working on getting an inverter and wiring that up for crock pots and so forth, putting a trailer hitch on to put the cooler/ grill hauler on the back to conserve space. Maybe some stainless wheel inserts, get the stickers off. Changed the interior lights to blue LEDs for a little Penn St. vibe. The cheap starters! When I get more time, when I am done remodeling my main bathroom at home, and have some money, I will get into it more extensively. I will try to post pictures as I go, but will be a slow process for me!
