1991 International Diesel w/ 168k. 5 Speed manual trans. Owned by a church (thats why it's white). She took 2 long hard months to build with the help of my super cousin & their loving family. THANK YOU TODD!!!
Awesome looking bus, and quick conversion time! What did it cost you to do the conversion? I noticed it has the stock rear door. What do you plan on hauling? I ask because I'm planning on building a hauler to carry my motorcycle and was thinking of building a lift carrier off the back to hold the bike instead of losing valudable living space inside. Also would have to modify the back to open wide so the bike would fit. Thanks.
Thanks for all the kind words. I will be mostly hauling motorcycles. Sport bikes, cafe bikes & dirt bikes should fit through the door with no issues. I plan on using a slide out ramp to get them on & off the bus. The propane heat source on the passenger side is a "ProCom Blue Flame Wall Heater — 10,000 BTU". I will also be using a nice floor mounted electric heater plus another "Gel canister burning" heater (I currently have candles in it) that is mounted on the wall of the drivers side for back-up heat. I have 2 fresh water tanks (1 is mounted inside, under a bench so it won't freeze), a grey water & black water tank mounted underneath the bus. Right now I have generator with a electric plug-in cord for power. I'm hoping to run a high end 30amp inverter soon with an extra set of RV batteries. The total build cost around $7k including the bus PLUS over 1000 hrs of build time.
Sammy the Skunk helped throughout the build.
Man that thing came out nice! I like the simple, open layout that has everything you need. How did you attach the wood to the ceiling? It looks like it's being screwed in through the tongue part of the wood but hard to see if it is. The screws must be real small if that's how it was done.
Also, is that real brick and if so how was it applied? I like the look.
$7k to buy and build that is a great price, especially considering it has water and plumbing! Once again, just awesome! Hope you get lots of enjoyment using it.
