Re: Converted School Bus For Sale

Extremely nice craftsmanship. The asking price is much higher than some less refined "complete" conversions listed here, but this is a bus for someone who wants to drive away and camp, not someone who wants a $2,000 bus to rip out whatever you built and start over. It is definitely priced favorably when compared to a motor home and not a fixer-upper skoolie.

Good luck with the sale.

Re: Converted School Bus For Sale

Thanks dude, yeah, this is really for someone who wants to park it and live in it. Not for someone who wants to travel. Mechanically it's in good shape but I've never driven it for long periods so not sure how it would hold up. It's also kind of heavy - though never weighed it.
Regarding price - keep in mind it is livable in the northern winters. The water heater kicks on when temp get's too low. The shower lines are heated with heat tape. The propane heater alone was $500 so we put a lot of quality work, money and thought into everything. We rented it out for $350/mo for the last year and it was comfortable all winter.
Could use a few more things like - solar panels and a grey water tank
Though we're torn about selling it, we need the $$ to help with a house we're building.

Cheers!

Would you consider rent to own? This is gorgeous! Something my husband would love to live in.

If you think 15k is high, look up some of the tiny houses are listed at. Sometimes on craigslist. Also, your link is dead.

It's true. Seeing what you have done is great. We just bought ours and it's ready to live in full time which we plan to do. BUT we bought an old Gillig and I'm starting to believe we paid for the name and "cool" styling. Can't vouch for the craftsmanship yet in our hands other than the fact that it's still kickin. We paid more than you're asking. Maybe a couple extras on what you have but I don't see why you can't get what you're asking. I'm still new, just gathered a lot from searching for what we wanted. Good luck with your house!
