ISO Starter Dream

Hello, everybody!!

We have finally found the time to start our dream!

We are having a hard time locating a good bus for our conversion project. We are in the Oklahoma area, but willing and ready to travel!

If anybody knows of anything and/or sees anything, it would be great if you could let us know.

We are looking for a long, 40 ft. Obviously in pretty decent shape. Lol.

Thank you in advance!!

Check out AAA Bus Sales in Phoenix. They always have a good selection to choose from.

Have you hooked it up to something with the software to verify the miles? How many hours?

I haven’t hooked it up to anything to confirm. If I remember correctly I believe it has 9500 hours. It’s currently sitting at my storage unit so I’m not sure on the exact hours! But it’s in great condition! No exterior rust and when I took the seats and rubber floor out there wasn’t really any on the subfloor either!

BWAP - Do you have a picture? We have decided shorter might be better for fitting into more campgrounds. Lol

A wise decision. Also know that emissions control in 04+ models can lead to problems. There are a few engines in that year range that are known to be troublesome as well. Good luck in your search, and happy hunting!
