Our *Almost* concerted Skoolie is up for sale.
We spent the better part of a year converting this well-maintained mid-size bus into a chic, comfortable home on wheels!
The 29 foot bus was originally from South Dakota and used owned by a fleet transport company who maintained the bus very well. Additionally, the bus has been inspected by a local school bus mechanic (from a school district) who assisted with fine-tuning brakes, replacing a driveline U-Joint, and completely fabricating a new staircase. It’s a turbo-diesel with an Allison transmission.
The bus had minimal rust when we pulled up the floors and has been sealed with multiple rustoleum coats before the insulation, framing, and final flooring were put in place.
The roof is coated in a tan Henry’s tropi-cool silicone coating and ceiling/walls insulated with all natural Havelock Wool. The ceiling is Pine tongue-and-groove boards.
There is a bed frame on hinges that will fit both a queen or full size mattress, with a large water tank underneath that is pex-piped to the faucet and sink. A shelf space, hanging clothes closet, pantry with sliding soft-close drawers, and kitchen area with 2 burner propane range built-in are next up on the drivers side.(Not currently connected to propane tank)
On the other side, a wood-stove hearth with a ‘Tiny Wood Stove'(in but not installed), solar generator storage, under-mount refrigerator/freezer with teak countertop, and 3-way pull out & lift up couch (cushion not pictured currently) lines the other side of the bus.
420 watts of solar power is bolted on the roof as well as a maxxfan for circulation.
The bus is wired for full household circuits but is not fully complete. For the time being, we have been using an all-in-one solar generator to power the various appliances including the fan, water pump, and various lighting.
There are a few other trimmings that are not complete (make it your own!) including cabinet and drawer fronts, power outlets, and some trim work in the front cab area.
The bus is successfully registered as an RV in the state of Washington and we have many videos and additional photos of the build process. While not fully complete or perfect, this has been a fun build that could use the perfect owners to complete the final parts and have a place to store, enjoy, and road-trip this lovely bus.
