short bus / skoolie/ RV / bus conversion / tiny house - $15000 (REDUCED)

skoolie/short bus/RV/ bus conversion/tiny house-$15000 (Indianapolis, IN)


For sale (leaving country) 18,500 OBO. For pictures look at https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...q3?usp=sharing

Bus is located in Zionsville, Indiana.

For sale is a completely off grid, solar powered school bus conversion. This bus can fly, comfortably maintaining the speed limit, or can be babied into achieving fuel efficiency up into the 17 mpg range. I purchased this bus from someone in Colorado a few weeks ago and drove it back from Denver to Indianapolis. Drove like a dream. The bus came from the state of Oklahoma in 2017, where it had been a fleet vehicle and maintained religiously by the state of Oklahoma. The bus engine has been "bullet proofed" (google "How to Bulletproof a Ford 6.0L Power Stroke Diesel"). The previous owner combed through everything, invested thousands in engine upgrades and built a clean and off-grid camper out of it. It was professionally built by an experienced tiny house builder. Absolutely no rust. This short bus skoolie has had a tremendous amount of engine upgrades added in order to achieve an efficient, reliable and powerful adventure rig. Information as follows:

Hi!

Sounds very interesting.

I did not see the info on the body; make/model, year, miles, exterior photos. Any info on window coverings, aux heat, insulation?

Thank you.
