Gonna buy a bus!


Converting a school bus into an RV? That sounds like my kind of crazy! Iím so glad I found this forum. I just found out about converting school buses into motor homes and immediately fell in love with the idea. Realistically, Iím about 9-12 months away from buying a bus. I plan on buying a full-sized bus and converting it into a tiny home on wheels. Any suggestions on what I should be doing in the interim before I buy?

Yes, spend all of your spare time during that 9 months reading everything on this site and you'll know exactly what you need when the time comes.

ditto to what 01marc said. read read read. narrow down what you need/want. start working on a budget. start looking at buses now so you get a feel for the market and how bidding works. read read read and read.
