Anybody have a short bus?

I'm looking at buying a short bus for my first bus. I want to turn it into a hunting cabin sort of thing. They have quite a few for sale around here in the $1,500 range. Most have Chevy 350 gas motors in them. I was thinking a camo paint job, three bunks in the back, a couch on one side, and a small kitchenette on the other. I was just curious if anybody else has a short bus and if so, what have you done to it? Thanks!

I'm not sure mine qualifys as a short bus in your opinion.
Mine is a 25 total feet bus with the hood.

I have one bed in the right rear corner and a toilet with a sit down shower stall on the left rear. I have a little bit of counter space with a sink middle left and a flip sofa just behind the driver seat. On the right side behind the front entrance door I have the wheel chair lift door with the wheelchair lift in it still that will be used for my friend. Then between the lift and the rear bed I have a little bit of open floor space and a lcd tv mounted on the wall.

Re: Anybody have a short bus?

I just did a quick check on craigslist in the minnesota area and found this one.

It might be worth it if it isn't too bad on rust and if it does run good.

This one here in madison wi area might be a better buy.

The 6.2 is a little under powered for a mini bus but they are not too bad and get good fuel economy compared to the 6.9 found in fords. If you look close it even has a hitch already. And the seats are out of it too.

Re: Anybody have a short bus?

It is an unfortunate reality that the fullsize buses often go for less than the short buses. I'll keep my eyes open here in the great north for you. Maybe I will stop and talk to Tim at UTB in Duluth if I get a chance at some point this week, but I can't make any promises.
