Sell me your unfinished project!

Hi everyone!

I'm in Philly and looking to start a conversion soon, but I don't want to deal with all of the paperwork involved with getting a title reclassified from a commercial bus to a motorhome. So, if you have a vehicle within a few hundred miles of PA that already has seats removed & has a motorhome title that you're looking to sell, let me know! Also happy for any leads you might have. Thank you!

Tim

Is it titled as a motorhome? Also, where are you located, what kind of bus is it, how long, what work has been done? Do you have a service history? Any pictures?

So many questions

Its in fl. I can go to the tag office any weekday and have it re-titled as a MH. I like it as a bus for flexibility of insurance, but all I have to do to change it is go fill out a form.
Its a 40 foot AmTran/Ward Senator. I have a build thread... roll your own- thats the title.

Hi EastCoast,

I was looking at your build thread, looks neat. You've put some good work into that bus.

Florida is a little far away, but I'm considering it (and looking at my budget...) have you already started raising the roof?

Any bus with a properly raised roof is worth $2000 more than is was before.

I have it all prepped and ready to raise. Just got done with most of the tar removal.
Ive been taking it slow and easy with the bus since the summer has been so brutal.
Yeah, I don't cut corners when it comes to working on stuff!

Hi Kubla,

What kind of work have you already done on it?

You're in Ohio? Awesome, I'm over in Youngstown.

I'd dearly love to purchase your bus, if at all possible. What'd be your price? Although... note, I'm on SSI, so I'd have to pay you over time. Maybe you could use that to fund your bus conversion for the other bus?
