    It’s a pretty color on the outside, and I love that door. The inside is off to a good start, but needs some redoing and some more finishing. There is nothing on the inside that couldn’t be made relatively inexpensively with some plywood and 2x4s, but that wood stove costs a bit. It’s nice, but that single tin is not enough insulation against that plywood. You need insulated backing board designed to handle that heat.

    The rebuilt engine is great and probably cost between $4000 and $6500 if memory serves me correctly, but you still have 8 fuel injectors that costs between $850 and $1000 each that will start breaking with regular use, and the injector wiring has to be replaced along with each injector because it gets brittle with time. The fuel modulator is notorious for dying on you whenever a fuel injector gives out.

    Has the transmission been overhauled at all, or is it the original? It will determine pulling strength going up hills, and a rebuilt transmission costs as much as a rebuilt engine. My tiny 15 passenger bus used 15 quarts of oil with each oil change. I imagine this larger bus uses more, and larger more expensive filters, too. There are double tires in the back, right? So that is 6 tires to upkeep, and rotate correctly.

    I guess what I am getting at is that a diesel bus can’t be beat for long distance travel. That engine will run all day and not get hot, and as a camper it is the greatest. So versatile, and you can literally park anywhere on the street. You don’t have to stay in a campground. You don’t have to set it up unless you want to hook up to electricity. It has many advantages, and I loved mine and lived in it for 3 years. So I am not trying to “dis” your bus bringing up all those things above. I am just saying, that whoever buys it will ultimately put even more money into it before it is really always reliable, so maybe the cost is a little high. I know what those size buses usually cost used and at auctions, and being a carpenter, I can guess how much money went into the wood building parts. The lockers, and heater are another expense, but I would still guess that you could make a fare and good profit if you lowered the price to around $14-16,ooo. You might stand better chance of selling it soon, and someone might better be able to get a loan to pay for it.

    Just so you’ll know that I am not just talking off the top of my head and trying to sound smart, I was raised by a diesel mechanic and have owned diesels in the past, even a small diesel bus that I drove back and forth across America two or three times a year for 3 years. I loved it! And of all the tiny houses in which I have lived in the last 7 years, I miss the bus the most, but they do take upkeep.

    Hello,

    Is your bus still for sale? Does it have any rust?
    Is there a queen size bed in the back??
    Can the lockers be removed ?
    Thank you
    Vicky
