Schoolies wanted

Hello everyone;
My name is Eric and I'am new to this forum. I'am curious if anyone could point me in the right direction in finding a fully self contained Schoolie?, is there a specific website solely dedicated regarding the subject?.
I would purchase a bus and build one myself, but due to current medical conditions, building one myself would be out of the question. I would love to find a completed two axle Crown, but as we all know "Crowns" are the holy grail and fetch a sizable premium.
Anyone with information regarding the subject who can help me, I would love to hear from you.

Thank you for your time!.
Kind regards, Eric Dee.

If you can't build it... Have you looked at already converted coaches. Far superior to a used school bus and basically the same price range as someone's converted bus.

You can usually find several skoolies on Craigslist. Go to your google search and type in "tempest search" this will allow you to search craigslist all across the country for one. They can be big prices cause they take a lot of work to build, most builds can take years to complete. The best thing about Skoolies is every one is tailored to the builder/owner and every one is a little different making them all unique.

Most of the big dollar school buses I've seen "converted" for sale don't even have insulation. Seems an interior and a splash of "conversion bus teal blue" paint are enough to get 60k out of some folks.
