It's all about the flashing lights!!!
A lot of older fire trucks are in pretty rough shape, but they look great because they have lots of fancy flashing lights.
It would cost a good deal of $$$ to totally deck out a skoolie with lights, but it would be cool. Strobes, oscillators, rotators, LED's, headlight flashers ect
A nice paint job can be done for a reasonable price. A skoolie is not only cheaper, but it can go a lot more places than a city bus or a tour bus with it's higher ground clearance.
You could put all kinds of stuff inside. A few mobile radios(vhf,uhf,800mhz) , multiple telephone lines, lot's of portable radios with chargers, desks, chairs, computers with cat 5 cable throughout or a secure wireless network, ect.......
I think it sounds like a fun project. You could build a skoolie with someone elses money.
A big tube bumper on the front end sure would be cool. you never know when you might need to push an abandoned vehicle out of the way during a natural disaster or some other emergency.
where are you from?
