I finally bought a bus. I have been wanting to do a conversion for years, as luck was to have it, I got a great deal on my bus. She is a 1993 BlueBird flat nose with a cummins 5.9 under the doghouse. 185,000 miles. Runs great. I got her for $1000.00. Most of the seats had already been removed and somebody did a military green paint job with house paint (that has to go). Overall I think it was a good purchase.
My plans are to convert the bus into cabin style RV with a very open floor plan. First phase is to pull the floors and walls below the windows and insulate and install a floating wood floor. Eventually I want the bus to have a wood stove behind the drivers seat, a sink, small fridge, an a/c unit, a shower, and possibly an incinerator toilet. The bed will go in the back. I would like the bus to be able to boondock for at least a month. I will get to all of that eventually.
My questions right now focus mainly on the bus a/c and heater units. I have found some good stuff regarding the heater removal/relocation but I have not found anything regarding the a/c system. I would like to remove it, it is bulky and takes up too much room. It works, so I would like to remove it and possibly sell it somewhere. If anyone has any experience removing these I would really appreciate some advice. Also, if anyone has a good outlet for selling these let me know. I will just be putting the money back into the bus.
