FOR SALE: Tiny Home on Wheels project just need your finishing touch!

Selling a 2004 Ford E450 that's been partially converted to a tiny home on wheels. I just retired and am moving and can't take it with me so I'm sacrificing this for $4250 OR best offer by the 31st of July (no reasonable offer refused ;?)

It was previously used as a transit bus for the city of Des Moines and has 259K miles on it. This vehicle was well maintained as is required by the municipality Ė it runs fine and has no major mechanical issues, it doesnít burn oil, the transmission is in good working order and it has no leaks of any kind.

Iíve put a LOT of time and money into this project (easily over $9000 and 200 hours labor), mostly due to discovering that the sides were delaminated and the vertical supports were largely rusted through. As you can see in a couple of the photos, Iíve replaced all the body frame supports and including the base support framing and replaced the outer skin with 1/4″ marine grade plywood.

Here's a link to my bus album and Iíll post a link to a YT video where I give a tour of the bus and explain all the materials that come with this, like kitchen cabinets, new instant on water heater, gas stove, all plumbing fixtures (toilet, lav and kitchen sink) brand new window AC, some dimensional lumber, laminate flooring, pine wood planks for walls/ceiling, tiles for countertops etc.). Still need both fresh and gray water tanks, propane tank, shore power wiring and some basic vehicle wiring done (rear lights not working but only because I'm not great with vehicle wiring - had to cut a big bundle of wiring going to the rear of the bus during the body rebuild and I just haven't figured out which ones they are, lol).

This is your chance to get that dream of a tiny home on wheels, Iíve done most of the work and all you have to do is add your finishing touch ;?) Here's the link to that video:
