Doesn't look like you get any new insulation in the roof for your 15000
I'm no bus expert but when I see conversions like this that skip a big step like insulation it makes me wonder what else they may have opted out of...

Looks really cool though

Not insulating walls and ceiling is a choice people make based upon their anticipated use. Sometimes they make that choice due to not wanting to do the work involved, or their budget.

The problem is that it is now for sale, and any prospective buyer has to either accept the way it was done or account for the cost and difficulty of putting it right.

Also .... it might be for sale, at least in part, because the current owner has found it very difficult to keep it cool in summer and warm in winter, or has big condensation issues.

All or none of this might apply, it's up to the buyer to understand what they are getting and if it will work for them.

Probably about a $3,000-$5,000 bus.

It doesn't even have a stove ? or heat, insulation, dual batteries with power, sink, water tank ? It is basically a painted shell with 2nd hand cupboards.

You are dealing with a "non-profit" they usually want money for nothing.

Not to mention still has the split rims, the 8.2 v-8 diesel ( most folks do not want...although the one I had was pretty good)...likely the lesser model trans. Outside paint?... looks like a roll on job...likely acrylic house paint ( $75)... cobbled together interior I could do for around $1000 at most. Far less if I scrounged the stuff used....which I would

And the tire condition and all the other important unknowns.

I also want to point out the speedo in the 89 Chevy/GMC bus rolls over to zero at 100,000 miles.... so true mileage UNKNOWN.

Below pictured is my old '89 but with high Carpenter ceiling and a better paint and interior. Same drive train ( except newer Jasper engine) All glass Limo tinted...Sold it for $3500 2 years ago. And it took a couple months to sell it for that! LOL
..BTW... I bought my 89 for $1800 about 5 years ago...drove it home... changed the camper converted inside a bit.....painted outside...nothing else.

$15,000???? ....... I think not

It's an old school bus....with nothing special...... geeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzz........

LOL, mention "non-profit" in a post for a bus how many times?
