Putting the skoolie up for sale, I got about 80% done with the conversion but too busy now to complete it. Lived in it for 7 months last year and it was a great rig, 5.9L Cummins is bulletproof and with the MT643 tranny you can tow 20k with it no problem. This combo is rare on busses typically you’ll find a AT545 which are cheap around town transmissions, 643 will get you cruising in the highway and towing.

Did all the boring stuff! Re-painted floor after patching all the holes, seat removal, repairs, re-caulking windows and oak framing and LOTS of insulation. 

Really just needs the house electrical, any plumbing you might want and coving up the roof insulation. I have the bamboo slats I was planning to use, included if you would like them.

Set up is 60% living with the rear 40% set up as a shop/ storage space.


  all oak framing (much better than the usual 2×4 setups you see)  and maple plywood

– reclaimed wine barrel kitchen area, already setup for mini fridge and sink


– living area is completely insulated. Roof, floor and walls have 2.5” of double faced closed cell poly = R17 

– 2x 4.5kw diesel cabin heaters with remotes

– AC system installed with remote (runs on AC)

– bed area fits a queen perfectly and has tons of storage underneath 


  5.9L Cummins engine 

– transmission is an Allison MT643 w/ locking  torque converter 

– has a throttle lock (allows for faster warm up and can act as cruise control)

– 60-gallon diesel tank

– 2-year old front steer tries, rear tires have 80% tread 

– 20,000lb hitch receiver w/ 7 pin and trailer break installed 

– living area windows re-caulked 

– floor was completely removed, holes patched and painted 

– doors re-sealed 

Currently can only do weekend showings and need a day notice as I work out of town
