Hello from Seattle, WA
Been lurking for a while, but now that I've bought my bus, I figured I should probably join up and stop creeping.
Just purchased my bus 6/26/19! I bought a GMC Vandura 3500 Microbird. I purchased from a lovely couple that were moving to Alaska for a new teaching job and they needed to sell it quickly. I was able to pick it up for a screaming deal because they were highly motivated sellers.
Previously, I had a 1988 Chevy G20 van I was going to convert, but once this bus came up for $1500 obo, all I could imagine was standing up and having headroom!!! Sadly I will be selling the Mystery Machine; it was so fun to drive and see people's reactions. I will use the money from the sale of the van to help fund the conversion.
I'll be going the sustainable route and trying to salvage and reuse as much as possible.
