WTB: Converted shuttle bus - East coast, mid-atlantic area

Some must haves:

* Gas engine, such as GM 8.1L, 6.0L or 366 or 6.8L V10 by Ford.
* Truck front, not E-series. Meaning GM G4500/5500 or Ford F450/F550.
* 2006 and newer
* Fully converted for full-timing, more or less plug-and-play
* Mid-Atlantic on the East coast, ideally, though will travel around the east coast for the right model. I am in Washington DC area.
* Flexible on size, between 17-30 passengers.

Ideally a shuttle bus such as FasTrans as it fulfills all of these requirements.

This pics lists an ideal candidate, 28-person FasTrans shuttle bus: (sold and not mine).

Re-reading the above.

It does not have to have the following (But I can't edit the OP), I will settle for the first two requirements.
I will engage the conversion myself.


* Fully converted for full-timing, more or less plug-and-play
* Mid-Atlantic on the East coast, ideally, though will travel around the east coast for the right model. I am in Washington DC area.

Hey! You updated your location. That's awesome. Should save alot of time back and forth for a bus all the way in Oregon. Not that I have a shuttle for sale.

Would you consider a completed dognose conversion with similar stats or a diesel engine shuttle? Do you have a fixed budget or price range?

My budget is probably up to 25,000, should have put that in the OP

I would have to see the specifics to make a determination. Pics speak a 1000 words.

The plan is to do stealth camping that's why a skoolie would stand out. But this area is full of shuttle buses and 16-28 passenger would fit right in. With business logos all over. That is really the whole point of it.

Most of them are E-class but sometimes you see F550 / F650 also, sometimes with the V10. It should not be that hard to find.
