The bus was $3500, I bought it from a Durham Dealer.
I spent $500 registering it as a regular automobile, and getting it smog exempt.
I also got insurance for $50 a month through AIS insurance (regular insurance companies told me to piss off due to six wheels.
Anyways, I'm super excited to have this bus, it's got 127,000 miles
thanks for the support
I don't know if you can get 'Artisan' insurance there or not - it's what I've been getting on all of my vehicles for many years, cars, pickups, cube van, now a big Suburban, etc - it allows me to use it privately as you would normally use a family vehicle - l'm not restricted for mileage, I can carry tools and supplies for my own jobs, and in a Province with ridiculously high insurance rates, it's the cheapest available, cheaper and more useful even than pensioner's insurance - when the time comes, I'll put it on my bus as well - l have comprehensive, liability, insured for accidents with uninsured drivers - it covers me if l hit a deer or other wildlife, covers broken glass etc, for about $75 per month, depending somewhat on what vehicle it's for - if I just had liability it would be somewhere around $50 per month
