2002 Thomas Built school bus originally used by the Prince Edwards County School District with 187512 miles. It has the highly sought after 3126 Catapillar diesel engine and Alison automatic transmission. Well maintained and just serviced in May 2019; oil and filter change, new fuel filter and water separator. Air-ride suspension, air brakes and air ride driver’s seat recently overhauled.
The bus is 30 feet long with an added $6000 hydraulic lift in rear that has been adapted for the loading of a motorcycle, four wheeler and/or small golf cart -800 lb. load capacity. The bus has made two trips to northern Michigan for extended camping trips from Shenandoah Valley.
High output carrier air-conditioning system runs off the engine power and a separate new 15,000 BTU low profile shore powered air-conditioning system with auxillary heating installed in May 2019 - $2500. Shore power electrical system professionally installed with separate electrical breaker box. Shore power will accept either 220 volts or 110 volts. Sink, microwave, refrigerator, composting toilet, bed, +/- leather couch all included. Fresh water and gray water tanks have been purchased but not installed and come with the deal.
Our original plan was to transform the bus into our own RV camper, but a job change necessitated a move and we have been notified by our HOA that we cannot keep the bus on our property. So it's a clean slate ready for someone to either keep it the way it is or modify it to suit their needs. We purchased the bus for $8500 and have spent ~$4-5k in additional improvements; we know we are taking a loss but would like the bus to go to someone that can enjoy it.
The bus is in a perfect position to make it into someone’s ideal RV.
