2002 38 84 Passenger Thomas / Caterpillar 3126A

hey guys, I found a bus on Craigslist and it's 2002 caterpillar however, from my research online it's seems alot of people are suggesting to stay away from caterpillar engine. I really don't know nothing and to be honest I am quit ignorant when it come to school bus let along buding a skoolie. My question is: is it a good bus? Or should I keep looking for another bus?
Thanks in advance.

Cat 3126 is a darn good engine as far as I'm concerned. How many miles/hours?

If that is really 121,000,000 miles I would skip it. If it is 121,000 then I would ask to see some service records
