Nice looking bus.

Could you please give us details on the engine and transmission?

Also, how did you insulate?

Thanks

Thanks!
What details on the engine and transmission are you looking for?
We didn't do the conversion ourselves, so if I'm not mistaken, the insulation is a foam board insulation and the interior of the bus itself was coated with an anti-heat loss spray.

Model specifics.

Mercedes made several different engines for medium duty applications. Allison also makes a number of different models. Some awesome, some that I wouldn't consider buying except for scrap.

Looks nice from what is shown. Someone spent some time and $$ in that build.
Like the ornamental iron work on the roof rack and tailgate!
Good luck on your sale...

What's wrong with it?
Didn't you JUST pay to have it converted by that shop where its sitting?
Or are you SkoolieHomes.com?
https://skoolie.homes/blog/portfolio...the-beach-bus/

That place has some horrible reviews.

This is the same bus.....hmmm. Their website page was updated 2019-03-13, so this person may have just gotten it back in that time between and decided to sell it.

Also these photos are the exact same as on the site which seem odd too.

Location is also the exact same town as skoolie.homes is based out of.

If you are a legit user sorry about being skeptical, things just seem a bit weird.

Posing as a legit forum member to hawk their shoddy work.
OR- someone got burned and wanted to try dumping their failed dream on one of us!

Just read the reviews-

They been trolling us for at least a year or so.
Remember "debbieJay" who trolled hard about having an 8.3 cummins 5 window. Never happened and when I dug deeper I found it was "debbie" from that scam skoolie company.

This company and any of their troll/shill accounts should be banned.

For what reason? A member puts a legitimate ad in the Classified section, breaking no rules. If you don't like it, don't open it.

They're a vendor trying to sell posing as an individual.

Yep.

Photos are the exact same as the ones on skoolie.homes, information is seemingly copied from the site, and the user has made no other posts, and the original post suggests it's a private individual that owns this instead of a company.

I wouldn't take the post down though, other unknowing users may see it and save themselves nearly $50,000.

I didn't see any rules forbidding dealers from posting. Would you all complain if a dealer came in selling a really nice bus at a really low price?

I would if the dealer was misrepresenting the offer.

We have an insurance agent on here who openly promotes his business on the forum. No problem. He is straight up about it and is offering a valuable service.

But not complain if they were not? What about private individuals misrepresenting their sale, should we report those also? Or do we read all the ads and use our due diligence to decide if it's legit or not? Although I've taken crap for doing it, but it helps others to point out all the cons of a sale.

Well kinda. This isn't a sales platform. Yeah there's a for sale section but its for members, not shysters.
