I'm selling my 1999 International 3800! I've had some good times with this baby, but situations change, and now I'm ready to sell it and move on to other things.
This is a shorter bus stated as 36 passenger, length is roughly 22 feet.
The bus is fully converted into a living space. It has both solar and shore power options.
I purchased the bus from the Beaufort County (North Carolina) school system, so it was well maintained during its service there.
The school system provided me with all maintenance documents related to this bus; prospective buyers are free to peruse them. Documentation can also be provided for any repairs I've had done.
Bus was bought summer 2017. Conversion took roughly a year.
Bus is registered as a house car in North Carolina. This means the bus requires an annual state vehicle inspection. You do not need a CDL to drive the bus, nor do you have to worry about a federal inspection.
Interior living area is insulated with spray foam! Yes, this includes floor, ceiling, all walls, as well as both custom doors!
A detailed overview of this snazzy lil fellow follows:
All seats removed, plastic flooring removed
Original metal flooring looked excellent. Was painted with several coats of Rustoleum for added durability
Original ceiling panels and insulation removed
Original wall panels removed
Transmission automatic, Allison transmission (new transmission installed by school system at 210,000 miles)
New radiator installed in late 2017
New Falken tires on front
New water pump installed in 2018
Note: the bus does NOT have cruise control, nor can it be installed. The cruise control buttons are generic. Also note that the bus tops out at around 50 MPH (2500 RPM). I've been told that the back end/gear ratios will need to be redone/tweaked if the new owner wants added speed.
Driver's seat replaced with a new one from Tractor Supply Co.
Security features installed for overhead emergency hatch and all doors.
All windows (besides emergency windows) have been screwed shut and spray foamed
Two custom-made doors, one connected to back wall, one connected to front wall
