Then, a year or so later bought a bus for $1600 and it ended up having a new engine already!! The point is, do your research and be PATIENT! There are certain platforms that people seem to agree are the best. It is not a purchase you should rush. Buses go to auction everyday. Good luck!
Thanks! I'm starting to look at many platforms now and really taking my time. I was only looking locally, but am heavily considering traveling anywhere in the US if it means getting a quality bus. I have shyed away from auctions because I'm noticing that there is a pattern of busses sold at auction. Worn out, in need of tires, and very few are mechanically sound. All I see is busses that are not able to run. I have very very high standards after this whole interaction and settling is what I am NOT about to do
I am however frustrated because I'm also dealing with some life stuff and trying to get a bus to get out of a living situation that is less than desirable for me.
I have been considering also completed conversation busses so I can just hit the road soon after getting the bus.
