The conversion to a classy motorhome has begun. The bus is 37 feet long and is powered by a rear-engine ‘pusher’ Cummins 5.9-liter diesel workhorse that is geared for mountain climbing/towing. The engine has logged only 164K miles and runs like new. The tires are all in great condition.
State of conversion project:
- The roof has been raised 16 inches and the windshield has been expanded 6 inches forward and an RV windshield has been installed
- All original bus windows have been removed, and replacement RV windows are included but have not been installed.
- A standard RV entry door and door frame are included but not yet installed.
- A 250-gallon water holding tank has been installed.
- Some electrical rework has been accomplished.
- The vehicle is already titled and tagged in Oregon as a motorhome.
- All body parts (trim pieces and gutters) removed during roof raising are included.
- Original electrical accessories (vent fans, etc.) are included.
- The driver’s seat is an ‘Air-Ride’ seat.
- N0 interior work has been accomplished.
- Design photos and 3-D engineering plans are available to the fortunate new owner that can be used as the project designer’s vision for end-state conversion.
Can be viewed in Dayton, Oregon on a vacant lot at the corner of Ferry Street & 5th Street.
