And you'll need to verify that new/used unit. If used as a normal school bus, it likely has easily over 200K on it.

No pun there. When I first moved back to Calif. in the 70's for a few days I had to sleep in my brothers dark green Dodge van conversion. No knew about insulating these things back then. The sun was my alarm clock, 10 minutes after sunrise it was too unbearable to stay in that oven.

Even with insulation, that combo'd still sweat you out in short order.
Lived in SoCal for a dozen years, so I know how considerable the Sun's power is there.
I made a fitted saddle cover from some old blue jeans for my bike.
Coz it got really old, really fast, getting flash-fried huevos after leaving it parked for several hours in the sunlight!

I saw one guy on youtube who painted his bus black because he was sick of school bus drivers waving to him.
