Not all of us own buses, but may have helpful information or experiences to share.
There are owners, past owners, future owners, and non-owners here. I was encouraged to sign up because of a post, I think by Elliot Naes, that encouraged lurkers to join in the fray. I was probably closer to buying a bus then compared to now. Now I am thinking more towards securing a smaller home for retirement in a few years.

That was just one example of one future owner who had something to say.
