Skoolie owner soon

Hello all,

I work for a school district and I am the lead bus technician. I am in charge of purchasing new school buses. I am buying one of the buses I am going to trade this year. The bus is an 72 Passenger 2006 Freightliner Thomas FS65, it is powered with a MBE900 240hp, 520 ft lb of torque. It is equipped with an Allison 2500 Currently it has 111,000 miles on it. There is a delay in my new buses getting here, so it will be late March before I can take procession of it. It will be named Marylyn after the its original driver.
My wife and I plan to retire in about 10 years and travel. If all goes as planned, it will be in this Skoolie.

Looks like a super-clean bus! It's also great you know the history of it so there will (hopefully) be no surprises down the road.
