Former BloodMobile! Complete with leveling jacks!

If its mechanically sound, that could be quite a sweet platform for you. Any details on hours, trans, maint records, etc?

The lack of a genny shouldnt be a big issue. Are the subfloor AC units still in place? (Oops. Nevermind. Roof units visible upon further oogling the pictures)

The nice thing about that bus is, It is already wired. If the AC's are good you are most likely well insulated. It has 2 doors for entry and exit I think. And the engine was rebuilt, Id ask when, find out the maintenance hx on it. And if it's legitimate, call him and offer 4k cash. (After you drive it of course!)

I'm even feeling it with that bus. Looks like a WanderLodge already. Pretty high mileage but I would assume any kind of other problems would have been addressed when they rebuilt the engine. Nice big open area for yoga or something, and privacy if you don't like windows. Save money because you don't need paint? It's even got a place to put DangerandPlay on the front.

2000 Thomas vs 1992 Bluebird

@Robin97396-Yep, you make some strong points! I also ran the vin number on the bluebird. It's a nice clean title and 1 owner. He said its about 42ft long which is plus. Really digging this skoolie!
But, then I came a cross this 2000 thomas which also has my attention. So which one should I pull the trigger on!!?? I also want to raise the roof 20inch higher.

Nice School bus

get the bluebird, will save you much work, already has the AC units, probably already wired for outside power with those units and lights, and probably not titled as a school bus so saving that hassle also

Any good?! Only one of the two best engines possible in a school bus and similar vehicles -- perhaps the best, period.
