Not financially feasible for most skoolie folks and makes little sense. The LPG part also adds to that.
They are 13 years old. That precludes "other districts" and these will go to one of the hordes of the uninitiated that think they're pretty and think they're perfect. Will buy one for under 8K.

If not that the the Dream Machine will show up in the classifieds:. Fully converted Schoolie for sale. The pictures will be awesome the price tag staggering and the lack of fuel efficiency discreetly not mentioned.
The babbling trickle of Failure.
