This is a low mileage 1992 Thomas Built Bus Conversion that’s SOLD. It’s Don Miller’s bus conversion.
It’s a wonderful motorhome that’s completely custom and remodeled. And it’s great for boondocking too because it’s set up to be completely off-grid functional. Pretty cool, right? There’s a fun story behind it too, so I hope you’ll enjoy it below. Thanks.

Low-Mileage 1992 Thomas Built Bus
Here’s the info and the photos about my bus conversion RV that’s for sale. (SOLD!)
In its previous lives, it served our rural county first as a beloved bookmobile and then as its Red Cross bloodmobile.
Once I finally got the Red Cross to sell it to me, I thoroughly enjoyed the process of fixing it up – starting with installing all those windows!
The bus is in pristine condition, almost like new. We love it, but can’t justify keeping it since it turns out we just don’t care to leave home!
The asking price is well below what I’ve put into this labor of love.
The bus is at our home near Asheville NC.
Conversion to RV included replacement of some major components, including gas tank, fuel pump, tires, brakes, radiator, water pump, master cylinder, hoses and belts, windshield glass, tail lights, and sway bar links, as well as improvement of the leaf springs.
Price reduction – now $37,500. SOLD.
