Systems: This bus is just as comfortable at a campsite, on BLM land or at fancy RV parks. I have driven this 10,000 miles and have never been turned away, park employees are more likely to ask for a tour then ask you to leave.

Drivers seat is custom red swede leather, air ride seat gives extra comfort, back up camera makes maneuvering much easier Bus is registered as a Motorhome in California so no smog and fully insured as an RV, should be easy to change over. *Cue the California hate* This is our 2nd bus build, I have owned a bus/tour company for roughly 10 years and also invest in real estate, renovating homes etc.
We built this bus to last and planned to keep it forever however things have changed so we are selling to move to our 2 new projects (think 4 wheel drive) It is a crime for this beauty to sit, so with a heavy heart I list her for sale. FAQ: Yes this a large vehicle however I am willing to offer a full day of drivers education by myself or one of my drivers all of us have 10+ years of bus driving experience Yes for the right price this can be delivered anywhere in the country, I’m happy to take her on one last trip
Yes, this is expensive, this is a skoolie that was very well built with features that you don’t see everyday. Additionally Im offering free driving lessons as well as thousands in preventative maintenance along with this. No we are not in any rush to sell this. Yes open to offers
