2003 International 3800 Project

I’m selling my conversion bus project!

My goal was a tour vehicle for work during the summer and a camping rig for every other season. Go through the photos of the build. We got a good basis down during the preliminary building phase of six full time weeks with six guys. After that, we took the bus on a 10,000 mile trip and experienced pretty much no issues. I never wrapped the project up. The reality is that my lifestyle doesnʼt justify this sort of travel. Iʼm a business owner and family man. Iʼm not on the road enough. Iʼd love to see someone build this vehicle into their dream!

We have so much invested into this truck! Every item we completed, we wanted to complete correctly. We sourced only quality parts and took our time on the metal fabrication, painting, insulation, and framing. This isnʼt the typical budget “skoolie” build.

As I said above, the heavy fabrication work is done. The interior of the bus needs to be refinished. I recommend removing the majority of the interior and starting a layout that suits your needs from scratch. Despite not being finished, my girlfriend and I still go camp out of it.

I know the truck from top to bottom, and youʼll get honest answers from me. In return, I expect to get an honest price for the vehicle. This truck is the basis for a kickass vehicle and with a small investment will be a four season camper, tiny house, etc.

You're in luck! Down the center the clearance is 75".

This is due to the bus being framed inside of the original bus frame. Very little interior space was used up!

I drove the bus 400 miles this past weekend. The engine missed a couple times for the first time ever, so I came back and replaced the camshaft position sensor. I replaced it with the OEM International part from the dealer.

Back to being ready to rip! Glad I got that taken care of before a buyer picked it up.

I am in love with this bus and you guys have done a fab job! It's a bit out of my price range but hope it goes to a worthy owner. Great job!

Thanks a lot! I've been hearing from interested buyers every couple days. There's definitely a few people I'd be excited to pass the bus to!

Pretty good price if you ask me! Hopefully the new buyer gets out of it better than I did. We sure put down good base work for'em
