For Sale - Converted Short Bus E-350 7.3L Diesel

We have to part with our fun little camping rig. We converted this short bus last November and had no plans on selling it. But now we need something larger so our loss is your gain. We did a ton of work to it, including:

Brand New Road Ripper 1000 Transmission, with a 3 year/100,000 mile warranty
Complete inspection and report from Gateway Transmission for all mechanicals components on the vehicle (Can show report in person)
Tires only have a couple thousand miles on them, in really good condition
Painted exterior
Remodeled interior
Includes a double bunk bed (both of them queen bed size)
Also includes a kitchen, dining, and desk area.
LED lights throughout that run off of the cigarette lighter
Custom done curtains throughout
Registered as a cutaway van so you will have no problem getting insurance on it
7 seat belts installed
Waterproof laminate flooring installed
7.3 L Diesel Engine


This was going to be our camping/day trip rig. We loved this little rig and we are super sad to part with it. A lot of work, resources, and making it mechanically sound have gone into it. The only thing that does not currently work on the bus is the rear heater. It just blows cold air. We have not taken the time to fix it since we managed even in -14 degree weather on our last trip to keep it warm with the front heater while driving. Taken on 1 cross country trip this December since we bought it, and it was a champ the whole way. On that trip we decided to replace the transmission because it was starting to show its age, so the transmission is super brand new, and we went for the better quality one because we planned on driving it for many more years. Again, our loss is your gain. If you have any questions please contact me via text at 4 0 2 - 5 2 5 - 4 2 8 6.

Is it free? It's kind of rude to sign up at websites just to hawk your goods. How about filling in your profile so we know who you are, where you're from, etc.

Hey, I appreciate that there's a number because people come along and want to buy a preconverted bus and can't find contact information of the OP. It would be helpful if there were a price.
Actually people sell stuff here all the time, or I should say people list stuff here. Sometimes I see things selling and other times there's no response from the OP.
This started well.

I'm sorry, I totally missed price. We are asking $12,000 OBO. Can't deviate much on price though because of how much we have already put into it. We actually found this website after our build. Wish I had found it earlier, would have been a nice resource for us as we ran into different things with our build.

Considering what it takes to put one of these conversions together that's very reasonable.
It's the same old story of there was someone here two weeks ago looking for a completed shorty. It always works that way.

Good luck.

Thank you!! We definitely aren't trying to make a profit on it, just recoupe what we put into it. Super sad to see it go. But planning on owning another skoolie down the road.

You have a very nice van, but this site is not where you will get maximum return on it.

I would try selling it locally (Craigslist), or even eBay with a decent reserve, but you will need to talk it up and provide more and better pictures.

Good luck with your sale.

I have it posted on Craigslist. Haven't tried eBay. Do people usually find a good response on there?

One other thing that is a bummer is that in the super cold weather it seems to have cracked in one spot on the outside. We aren't sure how that happened, just found the crack there one day and had to assume weather affected it.

Well folk here always complain that eBay prices go way too high, so you stand a better chance.

The bulk of the regulars, but not everyone, here, bought at auction.
