Hello everyone. I'm a recently retired school teacher living in London, Ontario and I am interested in building my own skoolie. There is so much information out there that it can be simply overwhelming. I'm looking for any advice on how to get started on purchasing a bus. Having little experience with this, I am hoping to get some advice on how to find the "right" bus. There seems to be an endless supply of available busses online but how do you find the right bus? Thanks in advance!

First figure out how big you want to be.

Next identify a reliable engine/trans in that size. Find a mechanic you trust and ask them, and if possible have them view any bus in question.

Find a bus with minimal to no rust and and engine and transmission on your list and pull the trigger.
