I totally respect that, man. I understand fully. My buddy Charlie drove his mom's route bus from Flint MI down here. Rustiest vehicle I've EVER seen. EVERY part of the bus was rusted to worthlessness.
You could save some distance though. KY has pretty nice buses for cheap. Where I picked up my 92 Ward for two grand.
Also check Maryland, Alabama, and Tennessee. Colorado, Idaho, Utah, and Cali are the cream of the crop, though, for sure.
The main reason for the HIGH prices on buses in FL is you're competing against a giant export market. They sell these things for top dollar in Central and South America.
My bus I bought at auction in CO was $1760 out the door. I've got it on CL with people CHOMPING at the bit to buy it for my asking price of $5500.
