Bus is currently tagged and insured. I drive it and mercerize the generator at least once every two weeks. There are no issues but all sales are final.
Bus is located in Raleigh North Carolina
Asking $12K



I purchased the bus three years ago to convert it to an RV. There were some mechanical issues when I bough it that I wanted to have corrected before I started my conversion, so the bus has spent the last few years bouncing from repair shop to repair shop. Needing to get on the road, I ended up buying an RV. I was repairing and converting the bus for my own use, so I didn't spare a dime on the work that I've done.The interior has been gutted, but I kept the bookcases because I was going to reuse the wood for my build. The new owner is welcomed to take any or all of the bookcases. There is also a third passenger seat with lap belt that was mounted in the back of the bus. The new owner is welcomed to that as well.

Serious inquires only, please. Respond to this add by sending me an email that includes your phone number. My email address is: starburt@bellsouth.net I am happy to answer any questions, but please ask only if you are serious about purchasing.

I responded via email as well but wonder why the user above commented on the engine location. WHat's wrong with where it is? Seems to be a very nice bus and a good starting point for a conversion but would be interested in other help and opinions.

What the seller did not mention is that this bus was flooded and has a salvage title. The engine placement is the least of your worries.

“ If you wouldn't mind not commenting on my ad on skoolie.net any longer. I am being up front with everyone, just like I was you, after I am contacted. Just because you are no longer interested, someone else may be”

No sir, you’re not being up front with people. You’ve demanded people give you their phone number, private information, in order to take their inquiries seriously. And you’ve withheld vital information in your ad.

Anything you have to say to me can be said publicly.
