We have a 1998 Blue Bird flat nose bus that is 40' in length. It's been fully converted and has been used and loved by our family for the past 7 years. We've taken this bus to PA, OH, TN, WI, U.P. and just last September to WY for our son's wedding. It has 127,319 miles on it and has a 427, gas engine that runs great. It has everything that a regular motorhome would have except the shower unit. It can sleep up to 14 people; two couches that fold down, two dinettes that fold down, four bunk beds with storage underneath separate bunk, and a separate sleeping area for the couple with storage under the mattress also. Two roof top air conditioners that keep the bus cool in the summer time. The kitchen has plenty of storage with a side pantry too. Sink, stove and refrigerator that all work. Lots of inside storage with shelves and closets and lots of storage outside, as in underneath compartments on the bus. There is a 20' awning and a propane grill that hooks onto the side of the bus that uses the propane lines run for the bus. An onboard Onan generator (commercial 6500 Watt, produces 120/240 voltage) to run everything. It has a convertor for DC. The windows are many and tinted. The bathroom has a toilet and sink, but like mentioned before, no shower. A closet located across from the bathroom could be converted into a shower room, if you so desired. We usually camped at KOA's for showers to accommodate our large family. We really love this bus, but with our children getting married, we really have no need for this size bus any longer. If you have any questions, please email us back and we will get pictures to you if interested and as many as you want. The bus is painted a two tone brown. It has a clear title and in hand; insured and ready to drive down the road...tires are in good condition. We are located in Tustin, MI (about 1-1/2 hrs north of Grand Rapids)
Send me an email or call... 231-sixtwozero-1093 Thanks for considering!
Thanks for the comments about the bus! Our family really had some fun and frustrating times making this bus come together! The day we brought it home, our 14 year old son had all the seats out by the end of the day.
Some of you have been asking about the insulation in the bus. The floor was taken up and 3/4" styrofoam plus 5/8" OSB was put down to reduce road noise and for insulating properties. The walls have rubberized foam along with the insulation that came with the bus (we left that all intact and built the walls out for extra insulating value). The roof has the original 2" pink panther insulation that came with the bus. We know it's there because we had seen it when installing the roof air conditioners. The bus heats well as I have used it for extra office space during the northern Michigan winters with just a space heater to heat it up. The bus is fully self contained. The water tank is a 60 gallon and the black/gray water tanks are 29 gallons each. Someone asked about pictures of the underbody and those are coming. Right now the snow is deep (whatever, it's April!), so as soon as I can get to it; I'll post them. Would really like this bus to go to a new home, so please consider! Thanks!
