This is similar to the bus Technomadia on Youtube has. you can check out their info at Technomadia | Adventures In Nomadic Serendipity or their videos on youtube. They have lots of good first hand info on buying and owning an old coach.

Thanks everyone! I will have to update the ad with more information if anyone can suggest things let me know! (I've never sold a bus before!) Also any other places that might be good places to list it?

This would be a good site to post it for sale on:
Bus Conversion Magazine Bulletin Board - Index
It is all about coaches, especially older models exactly like you have. Good luck.

Recently, like in the past several weeks, there have been several threads from people wanting a skoolie that is already finished enough to live in.
