2004 Thomas Short bus (Lynchburg, VA) $15,000

We bought this bus in Las Vegas, NV at the beginning of this year from the school district. We started converting it before moving to VA but didn not have time to finish it before we were forced to move out of it. It has the following:
-electrical (three solar panels on top, charge controller, storage batteries, outlets and breakers)
-wood stove (from tinywoodstove, rear exit pipe so that the top can be used to cook on)
-6í1Ē ceilings (Iím 5í8Ē and fit very comfortably inside)
-bedframe and couch areas installed (can easily be removed if wanted)
-insulation in the ceiling and walls
-two 50 gallon water tanks (the clean water tank is currently installed to give access from the side handicap door and the other one was for grey water but it is not installed)
-one school seat with the built in car seats is still installed
-kitchen counters, with quartz countertops and stainless steel sink
-electric water pump (not currently installed)
-laminate floors
-white curtains that line the bus
-ďgarageĒ that can be accessed from rear emergency exit and is located under the bed
-Allison and Cummings
-title says the bus is a smaller weight, so the dmv in vegas told us that a class C license is not required (I would check with your local dmv to make sure)
-may need a new battery (itís needs to be jump started at first, but when we drove it across the country we never had any issues with it starting back up. We only had to jump start it when it hadnít been driven for months.)
-slight oil leak (checked out by a mechanic that said itís fine as long as you tip off the oil, which we have a brand new five gallon bucket of)

We would like $15,000 to try and get back some of the money we put into adding electric/solar/stove/kitchen, but are willing to negotiate. It is currently in Lynchburg, VA. It must be picked up (we are full time student and donít have time to drive it anywhere).

Feel free to email me at maddyshea12@gmail.com for more information or questions.
If itís possible, I will update this post with information as people request it. I am also working on adding photos but since I am using my phone it is being weird.

Yes it is still for sale. It is about 30 ft. I have not been able to upload photos in here since I have only had internet on my phone. But if you email me I can send them over to you that way

What that a detailed reply. Allison makes several model of trans as well as Cummins several motors. You'll need to be a bit more specific, they are both important numbers.

Do you have any paperwork with the VIN #on it? We can tell you what's in it before Sun.

Cummins does not have a "g".

I didn’t realize my phone was autocorrecting that. I guess I should check my messages before I post them. Thank you!
I’m not sure. I will get them Sunday. The bus is on a piece of land outside of the city and I don’t have the paperwork with me.

Hello my name is Brian and I my girlfriend and 3 children are homeless in Lynchburg we work but we live check to check our house was foreclosed on due to water damage and we were not able to afford to save it since then we have bounced around from place to place and currently the 5 of us are staying in a small hotel room... We are seriously trying and looking for help but we are at the end of our rope with nowhere left to turn and no solutions to our problem. Soon we will be forced to leave the hotel we are paying for due to the introductory rate ending we already live check to check. I would go on and explain our situation further but it's too depressing to get into for now I just stumbled across your add and wanted to know if there was anyway you could help us out.
Or if you know of anything that could help us get a schoolies to convert remember we are low on cash and already feel horrible because of Christmas coming up and our terrible situation I am just trying everything I can not to give up. Please respond thank you for your time.
