Need a bus in the NE

Hi Folks;
New here. Getting primed for a conversion. Looking for a pusher, full length, Cummins 8.3, 2003 or less, no rust, hopefully headroom for 6'-3" after insulation (will do a roof raise no problem), (learning what else should be here), located within stones throw of Montreal, .....any leads, thoughts, Thanks in advance. Happy T day.

What you're looking for is a Colorado, Washington, or Arizona bus. How far can you throw a stone?

Looking for a grail, good luck. Start searching the auction sites.

You would be doing yourself a great disservice by looking within a stones throw of NE. That area will have the most rust issues of any buses.

Welcome to the site pzvt, although it looks like you've been a member on here longer than I have!
Anyhoo, what marc said x2.
I looked for many months around the NE area and found rusty busses that folks wanted stupid money for.
I went on govdeals and found my rust-free bus in North Carolina, and never looked back.

Well worth the effort and shipping cost to get my toy that way than have to deal with rust remediation before really getting to the conversion process.

Good luck to you in your search, and don't jump on the first thing that you come across, (unless it is exactly what you're looking for, and in good condition)...
