WTB Short Bus

Looking for no rust, good running, under 100K miles. Not trying to nickel and dime anyone so willing too pay what it's worth but not looking for any headaches, of course. I have built teardrops so the conversion is not scary. Just need a good platform to build on. Thanks for any leads and hope everyone is doing well.

no rust and under 100k miles is a tall order. Expect to pay a lot more than a typical used school bus.

I have such a bus, but I'm pretty set on keeping it. I got extremely lucky to find it.

Thanks, I appreciate the response. I understand. I'm not after the holy grail but it'd be great to start with something solid even if it costs a bit more. If I do find something, I'll probably sell my teardrop trailer which is a beautiful woody and pretty sure I can get $10K for that. So, that's a good starting investment, potentially. Anyhow, thanks for the feedback.

I understand. I can hope, right? Just finished a teardrop trailer so the overall build process and mentality is fresh, now just looking for a somewhat bigger footprint.

I have a 1990 Blue Bird TC2000.
It has 105,000 Actual on the 12Valve Cummins. Is 26 feet bumper to bumper. It is Rust free, Still seated and unmolested. My price is $8500.00 Firm. This machine is fully mechanical. All lights and gauges work as they should. Does not drop fluids, weep fluids from anywhere. I bought this bus directly from the School District for me. Not as a resale. Bus is turnkey. I have exacting standards. That's it. Good luck in your quest......Moki

Thanks a lot for this reply. Yours sounds like it's in very good shape. I'm looking for something smaller, though. I used to drive the model you have, years ago, and loved them but need something a little shorter. Good luck with the sale!

I would consider selling this 1990 Ford Collins with 7.3 diesel. 6’2” interior height. Runs great. Newer mud terrain tires. Jackknife couch bed and floating desk installed. Was about to paint. But......
$8,000
