Buying One Tomorrow

Hey Guys,

Brand new to the site and to the skoolie scene. Iíve been watching a ton of YouTube videos and lurking around here. I finally decided to pull the trigger. Iím going tomorrow to pick it up. Thought Iíd get some feedback before cash passes hands. The bus is a 95 bluebird flat nose. It was a military bus and then a church bought it from a dealer. I was told the maintence has been kept up on it. No proof though.
They had it listed for $5k. I offered $2500 and they accepted. The bus has 198k on it and has the Cummins engine. I feel like itís a good fit for what i want. My first question is. Do you guys have any pointers on what all i should checkout before money changes hands. I do know that itíll need tires at some point soon. 2nd question and this is just a curious thing, can you guys look at it and tell how tall the inside is?

I thought so. I’ve seen a lot worse for more money.
