If you’ve been following #skoolies for awhile, you’ll know that converting a school bus is a lot of work! What if you could get one that’s mostly complete? While this bus does need some updates (a few cracked windows and mechanical issues), the roof is raised and the interior looks stunning.
You’ll find an L-shaped kitchen, breakfast bar looking out the windows, a private toilet room and a glass shower that separates the spacious bedroom from the rest of the house. There are more details below the pictures!

Breakfast bar looks out the window.
The “waterfall” countertops are gorgeous.
Cozy bedroom in the back of the bus.
Closet area and a toilet room behind the door.
Many appliances included.
The skylight will need to be replaced (there’s a crack).
Now that’s a luxury shower!

- Was driven across the US, then purchased by a Canadian on the west coast (hence the photos). It sat on his property for 2 years and was lived in full time. I purchased in early winter to start my tiny house dream, and unfortunately, life had other plans. I spent ~$5000 having the brake lines replaced and improving how it runs at idle. If looking to ship across the mountains, I know a company. 😉
- The two cons are: 1. that the skylight cracked this winter. I noticed early and sealed with gorilla tape, but it will need to be replaced. We can either factor that in to the pricing, or I can try to have replaced ahead of time. 2. The outer window in the two pane window in the bathroom cracked. Was that way before I purchased.
- Price: $70000 (CAD) obo
- Put in an offer on Facebook (Note: Once this sells the link will no longer work)
