Greetings from San Antonio.. Been lurking here for awhile, want to get a bus soon & get started..Searching now for a space I can rent to store & work on the bus I will buy. Really like the forum and a wealth of information here. I am hoping that, given the climate in this area, should be able to obtain a bus with very little rust. My plan is to gut & build out with the idea of living in it, as I am a couple of years away from retirement, and only have myself & my retriever to worry about. Keeping an eye here for engine/tranny combo recommendations. I will want one capable of towing, so I imagine I will need one with the engine forward. Looking forward to learning and sharing a lot here.
