Fully Converted Thomas 8.3 Cummins Pusher

Converted Thomas 40' Skoolie bus conversion for sale
1999 thomas bus
condition: excellent
fuel: diesel
odometer: 12190
paint color: green
size / dimensions: 40 foot x 7 foot high inside
transmission: manual
Location: Grass Valley, CA
320 sq. feet built by an experienced contractor. This entire school bus is livable and ready to move into.


Features include:

King size bed & frame with tufted headboard, wooden floors, insulated roof, walls (partial) and floors, tinted and screened windows, AC, dry walls, lockers, kitchen counters with cabinets, deep kitchen sink, water heater, tiled bathroom, trough shower, toilet, grey water tank, black tank, water pump, 50 gallon water tank, propane stove, mini fridge, generator, 4 solar panels, wood stove on tiled and aluminum platform, desk with drawers, mini energy saving fridge, pull out sofa couch, 8 foot closet and shelves. Plenty of stowaway and lockers, 2 hidden closets in bed floors over back tire mount and under bed crawl space for storage. Can convert closet into bunk beds.

Perfect for tiny home, but dont have to trailer it around. Tour bus, festival and livable ready. Painted Camo Green to get lost in the wilderness and remain hidden. White roof to deflect sun in summers. Currently parked in Grass Valley, Ca

As for the mechanics of the bus. Well, you’ll be pleased.
This IS NOT the typical 5.9L engine. The 5.9L Cummins engine is commonly put in pick up trucks. It is highly underpowered for them, especially a school bus.
This bus is a gold mine mechanically(which is why I took time to find this).
It is a diesel Cummins 8.3L flat nose PUSHER(short drivetrain/less problems).
8.3 Cummins can handle the load of a converted Skloolie.
The bus runs, I’ve driven it out of California many long miles.
It starts right up. If you understand how to take care of a car, a bus will be just as easy. It’s no different. Oil. Gas. Brakes. Radiator fluid. Done.
The bus is a tank. It can even drive in sand without getting stuck.
