I have seen American buses in the EU, not really sure what the import process for them involves.

I know First Student in the UK used to order RHD school buses for use over there, not sure if you can buy them used or not. That would save you some time/money.

There was a guy here from Germany who bought one that had already been imported, paid (IIRC) $18,500 (that's $18.500,00 to you mixed-up euro types) for a bus that might have cost $2000 to $3000 here in the states.

It seems likely that you will be limited to a bus from 1994 or earlier. This is because diesel-powered school buses in the US had no emissions control devices until 2004, and even those were not capable of meeting European standards. Vehicles older than 25 years are apparently exempt, which is why a 1994 or older will work.

The insane markup plus the age limitation makes this a really bad idea for a European.
