The Freedom Bus
I want to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. My name is Michael and I live in Austin, Texas. I'm single, don't own a home & I'm always looking for my next adventure. After visiting a friend of mine who lives in a 32 foot Airstream trailer, I saw how someone could live in a compact space. I immediately started looking at RV's, travel trailers & buses but for some reason I was really attracted to the idea of converting over an old school bus. I was surprised to see that there is a whole web forum dedicated to converted school buses. I plan to live on the bus full time.
Several buses are for sale in this area but I want a flat nose. I located a 1994 Thomas Saf-T-Liner that wasn't for sale but I negotiated a deal to purchase it for $3000. It has 170,000 miles on a 5.9 liter Cummins & an Allison transmission. I'm probably going to pick it up next weekend and then start painting it & removing the seats. Here is a photo of where it sits now and I'll post some more photos when I pick it up.
