For sale:2001 BlueBird Freightliner with Catapillar Engine
Due to changes in our family, we're selling our 60 seating capacity 2001 Bluebird Freightliner.
We started the renovation process to convert it to an RV. Floor removed and prepped with plywood and insulation, it's ready for the next steps.
This involved a lot of hard work and was a project of love: seat removal, rubber floor and old plywood removal, stripping and cleaning the base metal. Many hours of labour complete, many times cited as the worse part of the Skoolie renovation process.
This runs extremely well and we planned to drive it 4500 miles to Alaska from NC.
