Smile E450 Coming at you from the Twin Cities

Hey everyone! Buddy and I purchased a retired VA E450 15 passenger bus. We have been saving for 2 years putting money into a savings account for this purchase. We have been lifelong MN Gophers football fans and have wanted a tailgate bus to entertain all our friends and enjoy Football Saturdays next to the stadium!
Its a V-10 Gas with 178,000 miles on it.
Just recently had breaks all redone bc they leaked brake fluid and were in rough shape.
-Removed all the seats and started building bench horseshoe style seating.
-Made seats out of maroon and Gold Vinyl material from JoAnn Fabrics.

-Future goals depending on money.
Paint the bus or possible get it wrapped( have a quote being put together)
Put an awning on the side
Install a custom grill on the back
Utilize a solar panel on the roof to recharge battery bank for Electronics in the bus.

If anyone has any ideas or advice, I am always open for comments!

Hey there!

Sounds like a fun tailgater project. How about a roof vent?
Depending on the size of your bus, consider a restroom. For partying, having your own throne and avoiding the porta-potty lines can be awesome.
