See my photos in the Album on my profile! Great before and after shots!


We have transformed a 40’ Thomas school bus into a tiny home! Complete with a kitchen living room bedroom and bathroom that’s in the works, this bus is cozy and functional! The complete electrical system has had an overhaul, we wired in 10 outlets 9 12v lights on switches, it’s hooked up to shore power right now, we added our own “RV” plug to have a second option for charging the battery bank, there are 4 12v batteries wired in series, its capabilities ble of running completely on solar alone if need be, we have 4 solar panels to come with as well! They are each 320 watt panels. The bathroom is in the works but very close to completion! If you prefer we would be more then happy to finish it out! If at this time you have the option to build it out yourselves if you’re looking for a great project! We’ve got a tankless water heater ready to be plugged into the system for endless amounts of hot water, as much as the tanks will allow �� there are 3 water tanks each 48g one grey water and two fresh as we presume to hook up a compost toilet to avoid black water��we run the bus once a month to keep up on the fluids flowing and the air filling through out properly just good measure when it’s sitting for so long.The bus it self runs great and has low miles, kept in great condition by the Thurston county school district.
Pictures are located in an album on my profile here!! I also have video of the Engine running and more photos if you would like also!

Just retired after 26 years and only that mileage. I would bet it is not accurate. Post the VIN and I can check. Allison supplies 99% of the transmissions in these buses, model is important.

i believe it hadn't actually been in service that long, because i know that would almost be impossible! I had done a little digging when we first bought her but i could be wrong! I will triple check on this.
Allison that's exactly right

A large percentage of buses had dash issues and it is not uncommon to have the whole dash replaced when they have issues, they don't correct the mileage when it is replaced. That bus typically should have around 260k. Allison made At 545, 643, 1000, 2000, 3000. Yours is probably the 545

that makes sense!

thank you for the info! I am trying to get everything as accurate as possible as well as enticing as possible, this project was going to be our home for a few years and now plans have changed and we are trying to sell her ASAP, so all your responses are extremely appreciated!

With 19,000 hours I would question the low mileage.

I'm new at this but I've never seen a bus without an Allison. What buses have non-Allison transmissions?

The ones with manuals. They're Spicer transmissions.
