E-450 Super Duty


  • This thing is a beast. I’ve taken it across country and it’s passed every test of mine – it will climb hills, its coasts beautifully on the highway, it starts up in the cold and high elevation and has required almost no maintenance since I bought it.
  • It’s super spacious (almost 6t ft standing room inside), one of the most reliable skoolie models you can find, and is ready for you to take it to the mountains this weekend.
  • I’m only getting rid of this because I’m moving with short notice, and I can’t take two vehicles.
  • Bus is currently located in Cary, NC (in between Durham and Raleigh, about 15 minutes from Raleigh-Durham airport) and is available for pickup from this location.

Basics about the bus:

  • 2002 Ford E-450 Super Duty 7.3L Diesel (22 ft long)
  • Tabs/registration: Valid through August 2024
  • Odometer: ~183K miles
  • Battery: Brand new as of April 2023
  • Tires: Put on $2k tires in May 2021 @ 168K miles


  • I am the second owner after the school district. The first owner gutted the bus and built out the cabinetry only.
  • I purchased it in February 2021 with 168K and I did the following:
    • Converted vehicle class to an RV at the DMV, its been fully insured ever since.
    • Full professional tune up – Done, no major issues just replaces fluids, filters, and things like that.
    • Professionally installed Jensen Touchscreen Radio with Apple Car Play – Has Bluetooth and there’s a phone mount on the dash for your phone.
    • Professionally installed Additional Radio Speaker – This thing is loud enough to not need max volume on the highway. I’ve even used it for music at campsites cause its that good.
    • Professionally installed tongue and groove paneling
    • Professional installed Water system – I never ran out of hot water.
    •  Professional installed full electrical – I was always charging at least 4 things, never ran out of power.
      • 2 Renogy Monocrystalline flex Solar Panel 175 watt
      • 2 Renogy AGM Deep Cycle 12V Batteries
      • Power Inverter 3000 Watts
      • Fuse box and breaker box
      • 2 12v input socket with USB
      • 4 Electrical A/C outlets
      • Fantastic roof vent fan
    •  Other:
      • Installed exterior locks with keys on passenger side door and rear door (vehicle is fully secured)
      • Revamped passenger side door (see photo)
      • Installed Thetford 92820 Porta Potti 365 (slides out from middle cabinet on the side of the sink)
      • Installed curtain rods and black out curtains
      • Bus does have a deep fridge installed that I never used (it does function and get cold, but needs a deep clean. it slides out from under the bench)
      • Bought an expensive tri-fold queen mattress for the rear (bench also fold outs to a full bed, so sleeps 4 in total)
      • Put seat cover on driver seat (driver seat is the only seat with a seatbelt – theres room for a passenger seat to be installed next to the driver or seat belt can be added to the bench for easily 2 adults, maybe 3).
    • Also included – $100s of dollars of extras:
      • New in box – Portable Gas One Butane/Propane stove and 2 spare canisters
      • New in box – Camco Evo RV Water Filter

      • 2 spare batteries
      • Random additional things like a smoke alarm and C02 alarm, etc. – See photos for additional extras.
    • Attention the bus needs – There is a crack in the windshield that will eventually need replacing, and and a/c needs to be recharges. Priced accordingly, open to reasonable negotiation.
