For Sale 2006 Skoolie project Raised Roof low miles

UPDATE: Since original post, the side door has been cut out to make it bigger for a deck. Also included additional lumber purchased for framing. This bus includes many supplies to complete the build, and includes the smaller windows that could be installed where the roof was raised. The skylights on both ends of the roof raise also open; There is a beautiful little cubby space at the back of the bus behind the bed frame, where I was going to install stained glass windows to work as a door to crawl back there and use as a pet or reading nook. This bus has some awesome features and will make a gorgeous home for the right builder/s.

Up for sale is my 2006 IC RE300, registered rv with roof raise and enough extras to almost complete the build. 145k miles and about 10k hours on the engine clock. Dt466 alison trans. It is gutted inside but has full insulation around the engine bay with insulation walls. The ceiling was spray foamed by the previous owner. Has a grey water tank installed with stacks for shower and kitchen sink and drain valve. It also has an installed and running dc setup on 3, 8d lifeline marine sealed batteries. This includes 1 solar panel, charge controller, breakers and a 2000w inverter. I have a main dc run going to the back with usb, voltage indicator and 12v accessory both front and back. Any other lights or small dc runs can be tapped off that.

The bus runs great and is started frequently. It was inspected in 2018 by a bus mechanic and changed the oil and had some air leaks fixed. Recenly i also had to replace the air dryer. There are no bad rust spots and the paint is in good condition. Most importantly it is registered it as an rv. So yes, this is a clean title rv with current registration in California. It is also smog exempt since its a recreational vehicle over 7 tons.

It has a raised roof that the previous owner did himself in the summer of 2019. He cut the roof and hat channels about 2 inches above the windows then welded a 1.5" steel box tube frame above the cut. He installed openable rear windows from a 2000 nissan minivan in the front and back. This gives great natural light and can even stargaze from bed. There are also 12" windows to add to the raised section that have not been installed yet. No cracks or snaps, is very solid. Kept original windows in the front living room section.

The floor is also insulated with plywood over it and the ceiling is spray foamed, there is a lot of nice plywood and hardwood for the build to be passed along to the next owner. There are also plumbing supplies, fasteners, automotive adhesive for sealing windows, interior lights and switches, a never used Suburban propane heater, brand new ryuvati stainless workstation sink, water pumps, paint and probably a few more things im forgetting.

Please contact for further info. $23K or OBO. Location Eugene OR
