TC 2000

This is El Guapo. He started life as a 1998 Bluebird TC 2000, 38 foot, front engine school bus from Davis County Utah. Now he is a completely off grid skoolie, who has criss-crossed the country a couple times, and is ready for his next adventure!

The Bus Engine is the incredibly desirable 12V Cummins (all mechanical) paired to a 5-speed automatic Allison transmission. This combination has been absolutely bulletproof for us and has taken us across the country twice with no problems whatsoever.

He cruises at 65 miles per hour and gets 10mpg. The bus has 261k miles on it, and has proven to be rock solid in every way.

The bus was completely gutted for the build, here is the list of what all was done:

-Inside floor rust completely remediated and sealed

Spray foam insulated in walls and ceiling

-1.5” Foamboard insulated on Floor

-All windows removed, Disassembled, Tinted with ceramic film, and sealed.

El Guapo has been a joy for my wife and I, and the only reason we are letting him go is because we moved to Hawaii. The Bus is ready to be used, as a travel machine or as the perfect airbnb addition to your property. Located 10 minutes from SEATAC airport. Delivery may be arranged.
