I bought one from Brant last year (not sure if he has another or not). it was a hassle, since he didn't actually have the title (don't ask). But got it all figured out eventually.

I'm still planning on converting mine, but haven't made much headway since plans changed for us and we ended up buying a house. I suppose for the right price I'd sell it, but if you can wait, and find one at auction, you'll do a lot better. I think I'd have to get $9k for mine to let it go.

Mine's a 1988, 40ft, with a remanufactured Detroit diesel 6v92TA - most likely around 64k miles on it (that's what the odometer has on it, and makes sense based on the date it was replaced). I've taken seats out, removed signage, and had a full $1k service done (flush/replace all fluids and go over the entire bus, replace a few seals, etc).

If you're seriously interested, PM me, and I can give you details. If you're going to offer $5k I'm not gonna sell though, and you should just keep an eye out for auctions. I think this is probably the best platform I could find for my style of full conversion (I'm keeping all the extra tall windows, RE, super solid, no rust, good storage underneath, heavy duty drive train, etc).

Thanks, guys. I'm really trying to keep my skoolie between 30&35 ft. Nice bus, though... Sammy, how many windows does your 40' have?

Boy, that'd be a pretty straightforward roof raise, eh?

Yeah it would. Too bad Gillig left the skoolie business.
