I've spent the last 3 years driving a Newmar Mountain Air coach on RAGBRAI and with it being 45' plus pulling a 24' enclosed car hauler (second bedroom, has A/C on roof, and yes, I know it's illegal in length) it's really a pain for RAGBRAI. Hard to find a place to park, manuvering is a pain, and it's really too nice for something like this. BTW, it's not mine, I just drive it for the owner.
Anyway, while on RAGBRAI last year, the owner had been watching a skoolie conversion on eBay that was in Florida. The conversion was partially done, but the owner had discovered he had inoperable cancer and only had about 16 months to live and since he'd spent 3 years on it and it wasn't done, he was selling everything off and spending time with his family with what little time he had left (or so the story goes as I recall it).
So my buddy bought it and had it brought back to Oklahoma. We had hoped to finish it before this year's ride, but it wasn't to be.
The bus has about 120k on it, it's a Detroit 360 with an automatic, has already been painted and has what I believe to be Lizard Skin on the roof. It has simulators on it and had an RV door put in place of the normal front door. The seats are all gone and it has carpet, paneling and a headliner put in. The driver's seat and passenger seat are out of coaches (they don't match) and right behind the driver's seat is an electric bench that folds out into a bed that I think is out of a conversion van. There were some cabinets inside that we took out, it already has one set of bunk beds installed and we have the stuff to put the other set in. There is already a shower installed and a RV toilet ready to place next to it. A fresh water tank and a small propane tank were included but not installed as was a stove. Oh, it also has in floor A/C that I believe is 110v. It's had some wiring done to it and has 110v outlets along the outsides, and it also has an electric awning attached to the side of it.
Plans call for a roof deck with collapsible rails so we can pull it into a shop, a front air deflector on the roof that also folds down for the same reason, a 4' deep rear deck to mount a generator on and have a ladder up to the roof deck. Interior would have another bench that folds out behind the passenger seat, a refrigerator and a microwave. The toilet will probably get mounted next to the shower facing the rear and we'll build a wall so it's in it's own room and maybe put another set of bunk beds for a total of 6, plus the two fold down benches, for a interior sleeping total of about 8. Where the flashing lights were, we'll put boat speakers and on the inside, where the mirror to see the passengers was, we'll put a LCD flat panel. We also have a rear view camera to mount and the inside will have surround sound and a DVD player. I hope to design the roof rack rails to accomodate a full canopy as well for when we're parked and if we do, we'll have a projector to put up there to show movies on the roof as well.
Here are some photos of the 'as bought' condition....(taken with cell phone, sorry....)
