college stutdents 1999 freightliner

Sup yall. In 2015 myself and a few friends were in a battle with our landlord and decided it would be best if we just moved out. Before we left, my friend and I went in on a decent deal for a 30 foot Freightliner to keep us housed while we looked for a new place to stay. I ended up moving back home and 6 months later bought my old friend out of the bus and it's now all mine. I believe it's a Cummins 5.9 turbo charged, with about 250k on it. I'm not sure on the transmission yet, I haven't climbed under or really done much work on it at all. I have driven it quite a bit and it shifts smooth and starts up first crank at all times.

here she sits on a rainy day:

and the interior:
front to back

back to front

<a href="http://s1284.photobucket.com/user/mpmah0ney/media/image21_zpsuqvf3ngk.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1284.photobucket.com/albums/a573/mpmah0ney/image21_zpsuqvf3ngk.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo image21_zpsuqvf3ngk.jpg"/></a>

Gutting the bus is on hold, I got halfway through and realized I need to make a trip to the dump, there's no more room left to work. In a few hours I had the cabinets down and the back wall almost down. There is a storage compartment in the back that really makes the interior much tighter. We'll see what happens from here on out. I really want to just get all the grody oem interior out and the plans will fall into place from there.

It's got to be the first RV faced bus I ever saw. I'm not a bus expert at all but it sure look cool and quirky!

It served it's first life as an airport shuttle bus going between Sacramento and San Francisco airports

I put some more work into tearing the interior out, but the rear partition between the cabin and the storage compartment is welded to the frame, and I don't have the tools to take care of that tonight.. gotta pick up an angle grinder


After tearing some of the carpet off the left and right walls, I found a ton of water and mold in the thin plywood behind. I could stick my drill bit right through it. Gotta track that down. I'm glad I chose to tear everything apart and go from scratch, I've found quite a bit out about my bus already

I believe that at some point one of the fixed windows was replaced with an emergency exit window that opens at the bottom and swings outward, leaving me with 3 emergency exits windows and 5 fixed. of the 5 fixed, 3 of them have small sliders in the top left and right corners that open up about a half a square foot of space.
