1999 Bluebird TC1000 for Sale

Beautiful mid sized bus for sale, 28 ft long. Last fall we drove it from Tacoma, WA to Ithaca, NY where we are now. It was a great bus for the trip, successfully traversed the Rocky Mountains, kept out the Wyoming wind, the midwest downpours, and the upstate NY cold. We were planning to live in it full time, but plans have changed and we're due to for a hiatus from vehicle-dwelling.

No, the wheelchair lift is gone. It was in the back where the bed now is, and without it there are two doors to open by the bed to make for a nice breeze.

I have a wheelchair lift in my garage in Northern New Jersey. It has the remote and everything was carefully disconnected from the bus. You'll just need cables to run power to it.

I’m a total newb, so the answer to this may be obvious to others, but which Allison transmission does this have? It’s a beautiful bus and I’m very interested, especially since I’m looking for a skoolie that can handle a cross-country journey back to WA��
