Re: 1982 Thomas 36' For Sale in Southern California

Please share more information about your bus! I'm no longer in CA but could use an excuse to visit family. What is the asking price?

Was it sold?

Here's an update on the 1982 Thomas listed above. We've posted the bus twice on ebay and it's sold both times. The first buyer never paid and the second buyer was running a Western Union scam. So we still have the bus, but we're still planning on moving across the country and we don't have the funds to take the bus with us. We also don't want to pay to have the bus in storage indefinitely. So we need to sell the bus quickly, as the ebay hassles have really wasted our time and our date of departure is rapidly approaching. This is a great bus that has a lot of conversion work done on it. It's not a completed project, but it's certainly been comfortable for us to live in. Please have a look. I'm attaching the link to the old ebay auction with all the pictures. We're asking $2000 obo.

1982 Thomas school bus conversion. Cummins VT-225 diesel engine. 121,682 miles. Green and white exterior. Interior conversion to RV nearly complete.

Originally a Washington State school bus. Has expired Washington tags. Previous owner began RV conversion around 2005. We purchased last year in Texas and drove to California with no problems. Bus starts and runs reliably.

*36 feet long
* queen-sized mattress with pillow-top
* ample interior storage built in
* shower stall
* Magic Chef 3-burner propane stove
* GE mini fridge + freezer
* 40-gallon fresh water tank
* automatic transmission
* new starting battery
* rear engine
* multiple storage bays underneath
* Envirolet composting toilet
* 2-seat dinette converts to single bed

It's still a work in progress. We're selling because we're relocating for work and won't have the time or space to finish the project. We're sad to see this bus go, but we hope that someone else can take her on many great adventures.

Make: Thomas
