FOR SALE
Brand: Ford E-350 Econo, 2005, Diesel, 6,0 L engine
KM: 205 000 (little for a diesel)
Asking price: $ 9

hello! I'm selling my skoolie, to be resumed in the process of conversion. ☺️ I'm parting with my wife, also the project is falling to the water, but I hope to find him such passionate people. is only us to take back the torch!

We bought it last spring for $ 14 (see both photos, it was already 'turnkey') and decided to redo the kitchen and bench modules to our liking, to make it more economical. All or almost all materials are purchased, but since the modules aren't ' back ', I'm dropping the price to $ 9 (We've put over $ 2 in conversion so far) ..

⚡️ The electric circuit is already installed, it's energy autonomous (it was important for us, who wanted to live for a year indoors and go around North America). It has 330 W of NINE solar panels (installed on roof, $ 1, invoice in support), two deep discharge batteries NEW as well.

The former owner was DJ, so the skoolie is equipped with a mega 1 600 W sound system excellent pioneer (I admit, initially I was skeptical, but on the road it's SO HOT to have a walking nightclub, hihi! ), I also have the bill for it.

Comes with TOILETTE dometic (tested and approved 😜), propane oven / POELE, LAVABO, FRIGO dometic 3 way (so propane and electricity, I picked it up from my dads aunty trailer, but I thought I was selling it for buy a small electric fridge only, it's up to you! The electric bus system was thought for this) etc., etc. EVERYTHING IS NINE (except the fridge, obviously)

I'm giving away EVERYTHING with (propane heater, mosquito nets, foams for benches, bed mattresses, fabrics for curtains, materials, table, lights (LED), extra seatbelts, etc., etc. )))

We bought new custom made countertops (see photo), all we have to do is install them.

💧 Basically all it's missing is a water tank for running water. To see the system you like most!

We painted the bus WHITE this summer, only a few little touches left to do. No rusts except in the corner of the foot walk, a little grinder and a new plate and it will be sorted!

The mechanics is A-1, it runs like a charm! (inspection done to buy, and I won't sell it either without you doing an inspection, that's the least thing 😊). The TIRES are new, they only ask to swallow miles!

Serious buyers please. I'd like to sell before winter (yes! ), hence the reason behind the price drop, and also because you don't have to be afraid to work with your hands to rebuild the kitchen (I know it scares a few, but oh well, as they say with a skoolie... It's never over! ) I kept in touch with the former owner of the bus, and if ever I can put you in touch if you have any more questions about his history.

PS: the ceiling height is about 5'4, I'm going back up because I'm small but... this detail will have to be taken into consideration for you! 😜
PPS: I'm in Sherbrooke 💚

I held off commenting about the engine in my earlier post, but know that it can be extremely troublesome, especially if left stock and with high mileage. There are remedies to getting it "bulletproofed", but at considerable cost. Probably not something you'd want to rip into anytime soon, if you need to buy and move into in a timely manner?

If you are interested, there are lengthy discussions on here specific to the Ford 6.0 diesel and its issues.

Good luck with your purchase...

Personally, I wouldn't touch a 6.0 PowerJoke. You can do better.

Generally, from 04+, the newer the vehicle, the better off you are with gas power. But with Ford, avoid the 3V Triton gassers. I sent some info to help in the selection process.

thank you! I def need some help in finding a bus. I don't want to do the full conversion. having it insulated and seats already out would be great. or even a half converted one like the one I showed you. I am looking for a short bus, dog nose, some nice power to it as I would like to take it off main roads, I will be travelling in it sometimes but using it more for a home base to live in. I def don't plan on travelling with it for months straight. and if I do I will stay more local to where I am. my budget 10,000 to 15,000$ Canadian.

Here's one although he hasn't given a definite yay on selling, nor a price. Assume he still has it, or he'd have likely let all on here know it was gone.
Also note that he has one "nibbling" on the bait, currently!...

There is diesel anti-gel additive but you need to add it preventatively when you fuel up in anticipation for freezing temps, not after you're already disabled by frozen fuel lines.

Diesel 911 can help with this, but it is SLOWWW.
