I'm Rhonda and I am looking at getting my first bus and doing a full camper conversion. I am a single mom of two, so my main concern is reliability of the bus and minimizing major unexpected expenses. I am looking for a 4 or 5 window short bus.
Here is a link to a bus I am looking at tomorrow: the gentleman said he has records of the work done.
I have read through quite a few posts about what to look for when inspecting the bus, but any advice would be greatly appreciated.
How much should I expect to pay for a mechanically/electronically sound bus?
Is $6,000 to high? If so, what might be a fair price? It seems a little high to me, but then again, i'm new.
Should I be concerned if I am the third or fourth owner of this bus in 5 years?
Is buying from an auction, sight unseen, a good option?
Things to look for or look at while inspecting the bus? Any thing to listen for with the motor?
Milage wise, from what I read the engine can possibly go another 300,00 miles if it was taken care of. Anything I should be concerned with on the motor?
Any and all advice is welcome!!! I want to start this adventure off right and your guidance is much appreciated. Thank you!!
