FOR SALE - Shuttle Bus ‘Family’ Conversion

2012 Chevy Express 4500 (Thor)
6.6L V8 Duramax Turbo Diesel
140,000 miles

Location: Farmingdale, NY


Meet Shane. An off-grid shuttle bus conversion that I completed in July 2021. Right after the conversion was complete our family took an 8 month maiden voyage across the USA and back. To say we had a great time would be an understatement, it was the adventure of a lifetime. But alas, our family is ready to stay put for a while and pass on the gift of Shane to another set of adventurers. To see detailed video footage of the entire build process please visit @theadventuresofheatherandrob on Instagram and go to our Highlight Reel. This conversion is perfect for a family with kids as there is a standard size crib setup for a newborn/toddler. The electric/solar setup is top of the line with a 400ah battery bank that can be charged by solar, by driving (alternator charging) or by shore power (plugging in). We proudly carry 100 gallons of fresh water for drinking, showering, or sink use. Here is a full list of features:
