Arrow 1996 Thomas International SKOOLIE FOR SALE

This 1996 Thomas International 4700 T444E School bus has been professionally converted and is titled as an RV. Sold fully furnished, ready to live in and/or travel.
It is 38 feet long, 8 feet wide. 9.6 feet tall, so that’s approximately 300 square feet living space.
Perfect for solo, couple, and family. It has 30-50 gal gas tank that will last 300 miles before needing fill up.
Runs and drives great with no issues. I have all the maintenance records as well.

I personally drove it all over Florida for 2 years, ran my business in it, and it runs great! I also ran Airbnb and Hip Camp on it.
It's been a great experience and creative business. I can also share my business documents if you are purchasing this as a business investment.

Willing to trade in for 25-32 ft. Mid-Size Skoolie.

We are currently located east of Gainesville, FL. Hoping to sell before March 1st. Contact if interested.
