about to buy a bus!

hallo y'all.

i'm a single mom in portland, oregon and i just found a guy about 4 hours away from me with a lot of buses right in my price range (they sell quickly but he regularly gets new ones) so i may be driving down either this weekend or 2 weeks from now and picking one up!

i am going for a flat nose diesel puller (but may consider a pusher if it's what he has at the time) and i already have a floor plan (that is flexible of course). i have until december/january to get it ready and then... we're off!

it will have to be fully off grid capable at that time, so i have a lot of learnin' and workin' to do. i lived in a 1989 fleetwood bounder (class a rv) for a year when my kids were teeny and LOVED it. so here we are getting a bus to live and travel in full time.

Good luck on your future bus buy!
The area of country you're in should be good for finding a nice, relatively rust free candidate.
Post up pics of your project if you feel like doing so.
We all love build pics...

If the guy you're buying from is a business, please list his name and contact information.
