Our camping bus

Hey bus people, this is my other bus. I purchased this bus back in January from a local bus garage that was doing a sealed bid. it is a 2001 international 3800 with the t444e. Paid $1277 for it.



this is the day it was picked up form the bus garage






this is after we got it home


pulling the seats out











interior starting to come together















this is resealing up the roof hatch's



building a stove for winter camping








some misc. camping trips

Wow! Awesome deal on a perfect sized bus. And a bus with a passenger seat? Excellent!

At first glance I thought those bolts on the seat were syringes!

Kinda looks like he cut the top 1/3 off at the rib and re-crimped the top on and welded a flange for the stack/chimney?

Looks good, can't wait get away to use mine....next spring. Wish I had some place to work on it inside out of the elements.

Nice couch. I want to know what you did to seal the seam on the door of the stove.
