Hello! What do you think of this shuttle bus?

http://seattle.craigslist.org/skc/cto/2804735124.html

I'm hankering to get started on this. We might get this bus tomorrow.

Am I making a mistake? Should I keep looking?
The way I figure, is if this thing is designed to hold 22 people and their luggage, it ought to be able to hold a bed, kitchen, bathroom, and WVO tanks, on top of other stuff.

I'd like to use the hatch in the roof to lead to a 1Ĺth floor, where there'd be a greenhouse and a garden towards the back and a sleeping nook towards the front.

According to the seller, it's a Ford Econoline cutaway shuttle bus with a 6.3L diesel engine.

No year.
No interior pics.
No idea who put the body on it.
Wrong engine info (it's a 7.3 diesel.)
Very high miles.
No way.

That bus is a few miles from me...

If you're not mechanical, I would take it to a mechanic you trust and have it looked over... Otherwise, looks like a decent rig...

If you end up getting it, start a build thread and keep us up to date...

Ended up not getting it. The lack of information turned me off.
