Skoolie seems like the place to be for fourms and blogs about school bus converting! So here we are. I have some great ideas for how I would love my bus to look and ride as a finished product. We are looking into converting a 54 passenger bus into a full-time living area for two, using it for a home on wheels.
I feel confident in our ability to gut and transform our future bus into the house on wheels we want, especially with the level of patience and amount of resources online.
However, I know it is extremely critical to choose the right bus from the get go. I know the basic things to look for when buying a new bus, and what to do to assure its not just good price and looks (thanks to the extremely large amount of information online and previous vehicle purchasing).
What I do NOT know is what kinds of buses have the best track record (meaning how well have they performed throughout the years) and what buses cost the least to maintain or fix (due to their available parts and experts able to fix them).
So simply.... which bus model and year is the best bus for BANG FOR YOUR BUCK?
(I know this question can be viewed subjectively... I'm looking for an objective view)
