The nicest and most complete conversion ive seen up for sale. Price is much more realistic than some of these clowns trying to sell their heaps for 15 or 20 grand.

Thanks. I didn't do the work, a Mennonite family in KY did the conversion. Most of the receipts came with the bus. I don't have anywhere near the skills needed for the conversion.

Newbie here...stepping out of the shadows to comment. Good looking conversion. Do you have the contact information for the family who did the conversion? I know will need some help but KY is close to me (central ohio).
Unfortunately I have to wait to link up a place to put a converted bus... and I know this one will gone quickly. Good luck with the sale!

this reminds me of those "to good to be true" Craigslst ads where you can buy a 2014 ski boat for $2800....

Great looking unit, and price seems extremely fair... it shouldn't sit long.

love the colors and the detail!

I'd buy that TODAY if I

A- had the money

B- didn't already have a bus project

I still lowball bid on the occasional bus, but other than that I'm spent till this one is done.

Beautiful rig, though.
