As we are completely new to this it's becoming difficult to find the right materials and yes we are still looking for the right size little bus.thank you.
Welcome to the group!
Best advice is to work on saving money (you'll need it), checking publicsurplus.com and govdeals.com every day (a good start to finding a bus), AND READ EVERYTHING YOU CAN ON THIS SITE!
Fact is, most all you need to know is here already. And while folks here are kindly to noobies (I can attest to this), it is courteous to see what's already been written. There is likely a book or two on any topic you might wish to explore, and it is better for you to do your homework and find and read it rather than to ask folks to re-write the posts they made last year. People here are highly receptive, by the way, to "I read a lot about this already, but can't seem to find ____" - it indicates that you've done as much as you could. Oh - and instead of using the on-site search engine, use Google and include "skoolie.net" as one of your search terms: works better.
