We are hoping to purchase a Thomas square nose school bus at the local auction over the next month or so. We decided on the "square nose" over the "dog nose" style because of the perception of the latter. Many people, and RV parks, consider the "dog nose" style to be "hippie buses". RV parks have been known to turn these so called "hippie buses" away because of their reputation and often haphazard appearance.
We are fortunate to live in a major center with monthly industrial auctions. The model of bus we want is readily available on a regular basis for around $500 depending on mileage. By the new year we will have secured our new bus and will start posting regular detailed updates, with pictures and video, in this section of our blog.
Thanks for reading,
