Got mine in Tucson, AZ for $2285. Drove to Oregon from Georgia first to look at the exact same bus model, but it was moldy inside, had light surface rust (nothing to really worry about now, but rust is like cancer: once it starts, it grows and is hard to stop). Spent more looking for the right bus than the bus itself costs.
In the end I feel I am 6 months to a year ahead (working alone) in the conversion process, since I have almost nothing in restoration and rust-removal. Just a new paint job from dried up paint that rubs off. Weather is turning that into a 7-month project, instead of 7 days...if I had to restore rust holes, it would be a hobby, not a home to live in today and now...
More encouragement for us to broaden our horizons! Seems like it may be the way to go. Appreciate the feedback! And happy bus building to you
