Updated Price! '98 International Skoolie -- Partially Converted with 1/3 roof raise

$16,750

Location: Dallas, TX

VIN: 1HVBGAAN6WA082589
condition: excellent
fuel: diesel
odometer: 205280
title status: clean
transmission: automatic

Open format skoolie/RV conversion. All the hard work is done! You can design your own layout to get started with right away. Was well into converting this full 40 foot 1998 flat nose International school bus into a loft on wheels, but my plans have changed, and sadly, owning a skoolie is no longer going to work out for me, so I am selling my unfinished conversion, as is. A ton of love has gone into this thing; completely de-rusted, sealed, insulated, and strengthened the floor support using a tight gridlock pattern for the framing. Raised the bedroom area (everything past the back wheel wells) a good 22 inches, with plans of putting a studio space underneath a lofted bed for seated productivity, with the bonus of still having full access to the back door. Also installed a nice, long horizontal window to run along the side of the lofted bed in the back of the bus for mountain views in the morning and star gazing before slumber, as well as took out all of the bus windows, replacing them with thick, extra efficient insulation, and installed some larger RV windows, creating walls of windows for the living space towards the front, and placing higher, longer windows along the wall where my kitchen/countertop area was going to be. The bus is incredibly insulated. In order to keep as much head space as possible, our plan was to embrace the look of raw wood grain for the floor, so we got these beautiful thick, sanded oak boards, and have spiffed and shined them up to where they look really nice and continuous, but you could of course install your own flooring on top. NO ELECTRICITY OR PLUMBING HAS BEEN DONE YET.

I have also bought most of the appliances and things you will need, but have yet to install them... so I am selling them separately, unless you are interested in any of them to go along with the skoolie.

Let me know if you are interested in any of these items...

Things that are available for purchase, but are not installed:
- (4) 6V 225Ah AGM deep cycle batteries
- (12) PRIS ULTRA-THIN 4" dimmable neutral white (4000K, 515 lumens, 7W each) LED recessed low profile lights w/ serial wire connectors and power supply (5yr. warranty)
- (1) Dometic refrigerator (largest that could fit with freezer on top and self locking door handles)
- 30" stainless steel double bowl under-mount sink
- new Coleman Mach 8 13,500 BTU RV air conditioner with inside control panel and duct
- 3-burner gas stove by Magic Chef for RVs
- (2) solar panels
- (1) Cooper Silver Gun Metal full work station loft for full sized bed from justbunkbeds.com
- paneling for walls, and some other misc. materials.

If you are familiar with different bus companies/makes, you probably know that International busses have engines and parts that go into tractors and tanks, are incredibly efficient, reliable, and cheeeeap to maintain compared to all of the other busses with Mercedes parts. This bus drives very well, has a ton of power, and comes with a clean, transferable title, of course. She has 205,280 miles on her. Starts up right away and runs like a charm. This can be a solid investment that will generate lots of extra income on the side when not in use by yourself!

Respond here, or text me at 2144171400 if interested.

That's true but I still find it to be very worth while.

I would love to get others opinions on this bus. The year, amount of mileage, the amount of work put into it and the price... would you say it’s a fair asking price, all things considered? We are new at this, but are wanting to take the leap of buying a bus soon and this one is in our area and having half the work done already is intriguing. We have a 91 international 7.3 ford diesel lined up to buy for $1500. Our mechanic friend loves the engine and think it’ll be a great buy. There’s a lot of work ahead of us and we are excited for the adventure but would still like to get y’all’s thoughts on price points and the advantages/disadvantages of buying a bus like this one posted. Thanks!

It seems to have all been done right and has quality components. The DT-466 is most everyone's preferred engine. I would pay 12 or 15,000 only if it included the items listed as sold separately especially considering they still need to be installed.
