We are a small family (mama, daddy, and baby), we have been living tiny for a few years, (Boats and RV's) and are working on buying a school bus this spring to convert into our full time home.
We are are looking for a 40' cummins\allison blend, diesel and manual ideally, and are open to the blue bird, international, etc.
We are curious about what experiences the schoolies out there have had with maintenance on their engines. Whether you recommend diesel or gas, and if your doing the repairs yourself our going to a mechanic. We just want to wrap our heads around the costs involved in maintaining a bus.
We are also open to tips on where to look for bus sales. We have our eye on the BC auction, ritchie bros, and on kijiji and ebay, we've also called some school districts in our area.
Thanks in advance!
We are so excited for this adventure!
