Wow. Just wow.
I'm a skoolie fan - my wife and I each own one and I help sell mini-buses.
But wow. I just helped someone sell this RV for $95K:
https://slambovia.weebly.com/jayco-rv.html
As much as I love skoolies, if I had $100K to burn and wanted to hit the road, the Jayco might just edge this one out.
NOTE: the Jayco is already sold, I just liked the price comparison to this one.

The jayco doesn't even have the metal headliner, and it was $20k less!

Y'all just don't see the major selling features that makes this worth every penny.
It has almost new bungee cords holding the books in the bookshelves and the exposed string lights creates an ambiance that will make the toughest man and woman swoon.
You might even get some body oil stains included on the seat cushions from shirtless man.

All the joking aside I've got big issues with some of the build quality. My opinion, if you don't know how to wire a house stop dicking around with electricity on your bus if you're going to try and pass off a huge safety issue on others.
This may be great systems but the install is definitely bo jank shite. Look at the pics of the wiring, zero chafe protection on all wires passing thru service panels, not secured properly. look at the neutrals in the main? No slack in the wires wrapped right over the breakers. I would not even consider this safe to run down the road.Click image for larger version

You won't get the "Big Money" if you don't ask for the "Big Money".

Time will tell WHEN & IF it sells who is IS the bigger idiot.

The seller OR the members posting in this thread!

Yeah okay, I'm going to go out on a limb and say you either are the seller or know the seller. This post was not meant to be offensive, but that asking price is ridiculous, you had to expect a lot of people wouldn't take it seriously.

What in gods name makes you think this bus is "very well worth $115,000" to someone...

I don't give a **** whether someone tries to sell something for more than I think its worth (in fact most of the finished skoolies selling for about 1/3 to 1/4 of the price of this are more than I would personally pay). Normally I would just keep moving and not bat an eye, let the market do its thing, but this bus is so ridiculously and obviously overpriced, and selling the 'lifestyle' is so heavily leaned on, I couldn't not share it here. I literally laughed out loud when I saw the price.


My guess is the 115k asking price is aimed at tricking someone into making a "lowball" offer of like 30-50k or something

At $115,000, you can get mint condition Wanderlodges, coach conversions and such, why would you even consider a home built skoolie

Well said! The tone of the advertising, to me makes the phrase "over the top" an understatement. Otherwise, I would have assumed the stated price to be a typo.

I'm reminded of the Cadillac Cimmaron of the early Eighties: derived from the Chevy Cavalier, somewhat improved in function, but twice the price of the Chevy.

My great-grandmother was a wealthy woman who bought a new Cadillac every two years. When the cimarron was released a salesman tried to show her on. "If I wanted a chevy I would go to the Chevy dealer" was her response.
