1991 Thomas for sale

We are selling our Skoolie. 1991 Thomas international, 7.3 liter engine.
Located in Logan, Utah. Asking price 15k. Basically we put about 15k into the bus and would like as close to that much as we can back... so if youíre interested. Shoot me an email with an offer or any questions.
We bought the bus from Pasadena Texas school district. There was minimal rust, which we ground out and treated. The odometer says 150k, but our mechanic who helped us buy it thinks thatís wrong. We donít know a lot about the mechanical end. We had a bus mechanic friend who helped us with all of that. If youíd like the vin number... Iíll email it to you.
We havenít driven it a ton... the biggest trip was from Texas to Utah loaded up as our moving truck. It did pretty well. Went slow up hills, so weíve been told it could use a turbo boost on the engine. It doesnít like to start when itís cold outside.
We lived in it full time as a family for 5 months, with the plan to live in it a couple more years. But our life plans changed when we were offered a job we were looking for sooner than we expected. Woohoo!! But sad to move on from bus life.
It has room for a a queen or king bed in the back. Two sets of bunk beds, one side is a narrow twin set, the other is more of a crib size set. This side could be turned into storage area. We have the mattresses for the narrow twins, that will go with the bus if you want them. But the smaller bunks we cut out of some thick foam. They werenít super great, so you probably donít want them... although they are available.
There is a tiled shower with a bench. A 20 gallon hot water tank. And a small toilet closet... which currently has a bucket compost toilet set up, but we rigged the water lines so it can easily be routed into the toilet area if you need it. There are no holding tanks.
Itís got 50 amp shoreline service.
We had a professional plumber and electrical help us put in those systems. Everything else we did ourselves. We are proud of our work, but itís not perfect. ;)
There are some unfinished areas, like trim and painting and the hatches, that we are slowly working on finishing. But itís in livable condition for sure.
The kitchen has a small fridge and freezer, a nice large sink, a butcher block counter top, a small microwave, and plenty of storage space.
We left the front area open to add a couch or put in a table and chairs.
There is no oven. We used a portable hot plate to cook over, or outside stoves/campfires.
Please email me any questions.

Thanks, I definitely agree. I was in the midst of trying to figure out how to post pictures when I got distracted by my kiddos. I will be posting pictures soon.
