This is the story of Parker’s short school bus conversion with a Murphy bed. It’s a very well thought out custom motor home called Bird the Bus!

I commonly talk to people who build Sprinter Camper Van conversions that have $50k-$80k invested in their rigs. I always try to convince people to consider the mini school bus conversion over a van. This video is a good example of why I think this. Enjoy!

This is Hank’s famous skoolie! It’s a widely-shared bus conversion that he built back in 2013. Because he no longer really uses it, he can’t justify continuing to hold on to it. So he’s making it available at a seemingly very reasonable price, but it does need some repairs. According to the listing on Tiny Home Builders Marketplace, it’s a 225-square-foot rolling home.

The bus is a 1998 Bluebird and it has a CAT 3116 with 225k miles and an automatic transmission. All brake components need replacing (rotors/calipers/lines) and the tires should be replaced before any long distance driving because they’re dry. Asking price is $12,000 in “as is” condition.
