Gorgeous Galanz mini-fridge and matching toaster/convection oven in Aqua
Custom reclaimed wood table, seats 4 and handmade from the wood from an old bowling alley. 2 upholstered bench seats with storage under and 2 sweet swing out seats.
Couch has storage underneath half of it
Comfy Queen memory foam mattress in back bedroom (but there’s enough room for a king, I think), big storage drawer under the bed. Blackout curtains. A little storage behind the bed
Bunk beds with rv size mattresses and blackout curtains. Ample storage underneath.
Shelves and closet space in MB
Bathroom: Tiny shower. Natures Head composting toilet. Sliding pocket door that hasn’t worked once since I bought the bus lol. It’s stuck open but would be a fun opportunity to put a sliding barn door in for aesthetics and privacy. I use a curtain
Flat screen smart tv. The tv area has lots of potential building space. I was going to do a meditation space here, but my daughters toys took precedence lol there’s lots of room to put in a wood burning stove here
Vinyl wood floors (uninsulated or more likely, original insulation and they put the floor on top
Original metal panels and insulation on ceiling
90 gallon fresh water tank
60 gallon grey water kitchen tank
45 gallon grey water bathroom tank. (Was hooked up to rv flushable toilet but I removed the toilet and put in a Natures Head. The shower isn’t connected to the grey tank, because idk how and it was never connected since I bought the bus but it would probably be fairly easy. As it is, I just have mine draining straight into the septic)
12 gallon (I think?) horizontal propane tank
Here’s the battery info from the previous owner (idk anything about electrical, so this is just FYI lol): 2 brand new (as of when I bought it in March 2021) chassis batteries: Power Stride H8DX4. Battery bank: Lifeline GPL-8DL. Inverter: Power Bright 6000 watt (PW 6000-12)
Suburban Direct vent water heater
Artis power drive automatic water pump
Pentair Sureflo city curbside potable water entry system (2- one for tank and one for direct access)
Dometic brisk II Air A/C brand new (rarely used because it trips the inverter. I think there’s a surge protector type thing you can get that will help it not trip but I haven’t tried it, I just gave up on a/c lol)
The longest I’ve driven it at one time is probably 6 hours and she did great. She starts up right away, every time and really seems to WANT to driiiive😂
My major issue with this bus is that it’s not insulated. I live in WA and the bus is too cold for me. I’m a wimp when it comes to cold. Space heaters, socks and sweatshirts and throw rugs help for sure tho. Reflectix or some other insulating curtains would help too. The bus has curtains and curtain rods throughout.
It needs new tires and batteries. There is NO solar, but the previous owner says the inverter is a great one and it’s ready for solar to be added. As it is, the electrical system can be over powered by appliances like burners, heaters and the toaster oven. I use an extension cord for these (plugged into shore power) Other than that, the fridge, lamp and electronic devices are fine with shore power.
There’s a few plumbing issues. The grey tank for sink water needs a new exit pipe. It got knocked off the tank and leaked all over the tank platform so that needs replacing as it warped and cracked. The shower needs to be connected to the grey tank
She could use a new paint job, it’s flaking off a bit but there’s very little rust. I believe the bus was originally from the Southern California area.
She’s not registered as an RV
-Location: South Sound, WA (about 30 min south of Seattle)
