Congrats on the VanHool! But is this really a 2006? Looks like a 1996 body style as the 2006 have seamless glass and the curve down to driver. Like the one below:

Found your listing! It's got that mid coach restroom down the stairs!! Sweet layout - you can do some interesting things with that! Nice price too that's 40' bus right? A model T-815...

I was gonna say if you got a 2006 you dropped a good 200k+ (Drool)

Yes, 40'. I might move the bathroom and use the stairs and door to make the cargo area a bedroom for the kids. And a got it for a better price than what was listed.

Our 1998 T2140 Van Hool conversion

New to forums, new to bus conversions, new to Skoolie.net, not new to hard work! Husband and I bought a 1998 T2140 Van Hool passenger bus in October, 2016 for $12K to convert to our retirement home on wheels. Hard work is what we found and we are loving every minute of it. Well, maybe not EVERY minute of it but most of them. We have it completely gutted, insulated, some of our items purchased and are ready to begin the build stage so we figure we found Skoolie.net and experienced people just in time.

Have enjoyed reading your forum posts, getting lots of good ideas, how to's and looking at your pictures. Can't wait to begin the next adventure with our Whimsy!

Question for anyone that can answer: Our insurance company is saying that there is no way to insure the 1996 Van Hool until it is converted into an RV. Pretty sure this is BS. I would like to use it during the conversion process even if it is not completed....

We were told we could insure it as a bus for transporting passengers at 13K a year or wait until it is complete as a motor home to insure it. We couldn't find any in between either. Please post if you find an alternative. I would be interested to find out what you discover.

I've heard the suggestion for National General (they insure self converted RV status)

I have progressive, but all states get funky with different requirements. In my DMV trip I already got its status to RV for the insurance...

We have Progressive but they were a no-go here in Ohio. We will check out National General for sure. It would be nice to use it a bit during construction. Thanks for this information as well all the inspiration in your forum posts. Great job you're doing on your Van Hool. Can't wait to put some of your ideas into ours!

I've already had it registered as an RV and the insurance company wants photos of the conversion (bed, sink, cooking area). I'm thinking I might just mock up something and snap a few photos and get the RV insurance!
