Check out MINION our Brand New Skoolie Conversion from our shop Dream Reality Studios LLC.

This bus was professionally built in a shop with the knowledge and experience of multiple builds and the highest grade materials. (Wasn’t someones first build built in a backyard.)

The bus itself is a very rare size and was purchased directly from the school district. It was an activity bus for High School Kids so a little taller than average. Another special feature is it is skinny. Most busses are 8ft wide and can be a little more tricky driving thru narrow city streets. This bus is only 7ft wide so it drives and handles like a mini van. To give you an example it’s about the size of a 140WB ProMaster Van. Basically this could be used as daily driver easily and daily driving and parking will never be an issue. This bus is also on a van chassis which means you can go to any local tire store for tires or suspension work. It has a 7.3 Powerstorke motor which can easily hit 500k and known to hit 1M. I have owned prolly 6 of these busses and had 0 problems. This bus was maintained by a Powerstroke Specialist and is in great running and driving condition. I have owned this bus for years and it has NEVER failed me or left me stranded. The bus was driven to Texas and back with 0 issues. The bus is mechanically reliable. Let’s get into the features.
