Talking Finally Won An Auction!

Hello Everybody!

Thank you to everyone that has contributed knowledge to this site/forum.
It's because of all those posts and conversations on here I was able to confidently bid on the perfect bus for me... and today I won the auction for that bus!

It's a 2004 Blue Bird All American with a 3126 and MD3060. It has 164,000 miles and was used as a reserve highway bus for the school district. They sold it to fulfill the terms of a grant. (Must sell a working bus...not parts or broken bus.)

This checks all the boxes and then some.
• Rust-free public school district (even better this one is local)
• 3126 or DT466 & Pusher
• MD3060
• Pass through storage
• 6'2ish of headroom
• 40 ft
• Side door
• Working A/C
• Tires... the tires are in great shape! (I budgeted for new tires!)
• Batteries... (Also budgeted for this as well, but they are new)
• 2003 or older (This is close enough it's a 2004 but still it doesn't have the C-7... I know I didn't want anything newer than 2007 for sure).

Please let me know any suggestions you may have. I've been reading this forum and watching tons of YouTube conversion videos for a couple of years now. However, I know I'm about to find out firsthand.

I know the first thing is to get paperwork sent off to Vermont any other suggestions?

Thank you!

Looks awesome!! It’s easy enough to register it as an RV in AZ, so do that. VT is fantastic but it is still better to do it locally if you can (it’s also the law...)

Looks good, and the pass-through storage is a huge plus. Good luck with the conversion, take you time and plan everything!

We have some forum members here in AZ that have done it. It looks like a very easy process. AZ is a nice state to work with in vehicle registrations. Someone will speak up here from AZ.
