Fully Converted 1992 Blue Bird

For sale is my beloved skoolie conversion. Built on a bombproof 1992 Blue Bird All American chassis, 40 feet long with a Cummins 8.3L and only 177,000 on the clock. Mechanically the bus is excellent. Has new tires, new batteries, and fresh fluids. Needs absolutely nothing!
As far as the buildout goes, no expense was spared. It is fully setup to exist off-grid with 1200 watts of solar (24V), 450AH of battery storage (24V), 77 gallons of fresh water storage, electric hot water, and a compost toilet. It also has hookups to use city water, shore power, and septic grey water. Has a wood-burning stove and spray-foam insulation, along with a roof-top deck, pull-out guest bed and a queen bed in the back.

I have tons more photos and any and all information you might need on the build! Feel free to reach out with questions.
Clean WY title in my name.

Asking $65,000 OBO. Cash or money order, no owner-financing or payment plans.

Well that has to be the most ambitious price for a Skoolie on this site. Good luck.

You scare away potential buyers who might make a reasonable offer.

That means he's trying to get from this bus way more than he knows it worth.

I know what he’s trying to do, but I still don’t understand “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t pour”

That means he will PROBABLY not sell the bus even close to this price, but if he doesn't try it is CERTAIN he will not sell it.

Really?? Think, dont knee jerk react, but think on it for a minute.


Going with this analogy, look at it from the customer's view point. If the customer wants a drink, and the bar tender does not pour one,........
If many customers want drinks and the bar tender does not pour any,.......


So on to the bus for sale. The price is posted. The skoolie culture says "holy s**t!!! Batman". But in reality, you have to start somewhere. You can always lower your price, but here on earth, you can't raise it. Most have been trained to believe a high price will scare away potential offers. However that is a trained line of thought. Kinda like when one sees and ad with "call" in the price line, but the seller is only able to take calls from 2:00pm and 2:20pm every fifth thursday on months ending in the letter b.


A well organized seller at a high price will "weed out" a huge amount of tire kickers that want nothing more than to get ideas that they will never afford. An informed and experienced buyer will see the opportunity to look, leave, and come back with a reasonable or low ball offer when the time is right.



Right now, any reasonably well built rv, even a skoolie, will sell for decent money.

RV sales are swift again this spring according to a buddy of mine who sells brand new ones.. 65k will at least get you the ability to not need sweat rags for summer drives, enough room to stand up,, and a toilet that isnt a stinky poop bucket

My intention was just to keep it light. I'm always open to offers, worst I could say is no. I just don't see a reason to troll around and tell people they're asking too much for something.

I didn't say "too much" but "way more than it worth". Not the same thing.
It's a public forum, and I think members are allowed to express their thoughts. Mine is your bus worth $15k. Maybe other people would say it's value is 30k, or more. At the end, the value of it will be the price you and the buyer would agree on.
Good luck with your sale,
S

Actually not in this forum thread, the rules say no comments, otherwise you get this kind of discussion. Just ignore it. I wish the seller nothing but grief for wasting buyers time looking.

Oops. You're right. My apologies. I'd see no issue if a moderator delete my posts.

Right? In my opinion, compost has no smell at all and those nasty black tanks are a nightmare to empty and clean. Iíll take the bucket, thanks. Lol

Probably more frustration with how the market is right now. Iím frustrated with prices as well. Although I want to build mine from the ground up, I want a bus similar to yours and the prices have more than doubled on what Iím looking at since the horrible beginning of 2020. I think some are just tired that what used to be a way for anyone to enjoy traveling and tiny living, is now up there with those high end rvs, and buying an unconverted one is nearly as difficult and expensive. Lots of dealers and individuals taking advantage of the market while they can. It hurts when your entire life and dreams are on hold because of such things.

All that being said, it is your hard work and your pride and joy. If you think itís worth $1 million, you go for it. It will always come down to what someone is willing to pay, and that isnít really anyone elseís concern. 🤷🏼
