2004 BB 90 passenger, 40-50%

I have a 2004 bluebird 90 passenger, cab over for sale. 200k, c7, air brakes and pretty damn clean underneath. Lots to write about but ill just load pics later here. She came from knoxville and made the trip without a hitch and will do 80mph. Mechanically sound. Has been raised 8" all the way around and rivet work. Mostly insulated. Pex lines and lots of fittings and other small things. Comes with 2x 200ah lithium batts, 8x 100watt renogy panels, 2x 40amp mppt controllers, 2000watt inverter, battery monitor. I know there is a lot more to list but it escapes me atm. Any questions feel free to ask away. About 12k invested. 10k takes it home. Thanks.

The bus is in Cincinnati Ohio. Not able to deliver so she would need picked up. Ohio gives 3 days to get a vehicle you just bought home without a tag.

I always love the below-window roof raises.. seems cleaner than the over window...

looks like a nice build started!

Thanks. I've enjoyed every bit of it so far. Life is just going another direction currently.

How tall is that on the inside, floor to ceiling? And, how tall overall?

She is just shy of 10 foot OA i believe and something like 80" on the inside with 1.5" thick floor. I am 6'1" and I have almost a full hand (wrist to finger tip) above my head while on the subfloor.

Shame it wasn't raised 18-20 inches, I'd be looking at it then. I need 90+ inches inside for what I want to do, but then I'm doing something unusual. If I'm going to have to do a raise of my own I'd rather start with an uncut bus. Appreciate it.

Glad to help. I went with the 8" for a few reasons. The counter height will be about the same as in the house so it would feel normal. Also to keep all the windows I could and not have furniture or cabinets blocking half of the lower window out.

just a friendly reminder about roof raises.
the higher you go the more your center of gravity is changed.
means you need to slow down even more in sharp turn and try to stay off the curbs in a two lane road turn. also the higher the raise the more i would want to run around with a full holding tank and heavy batteries down low for ballast.
an opinion.

I would be willing to entertain offers also. With or without the solar setup. She has a large 150lb propane tank that needs blasted, inspected and painted and new valves and hardware. Subfloor is done as is the metal work. Pretty much a clean slate on the inside. The only wiring removed was for the radio and rear heater, the rest is still intact and no safety interlocks of any kind. However there is an electrical gremlin somewhere draining the battery slowly. A fresh charge and she's ready to go.

My partner and I are seriously considering your bus. What is the best way to contact you? We have a few questions.

Awesome thanks for the reply and we'll be contacting you tomorrow probably around 6ish EST. time. That's when we are both off of work if that's OK for you.
