Get the ultimate head start on your dream Skoolie build with this amazing roof raised bus conversion platform! This Skoolie platform is a solid, clean bus that has arguably the best drivetrain combination found in school buses. So much of the hard work has already been completed and it is 100% ready to be customized and turned into an amazing tiny home on wheels. For starters, it has the legendary 8.3L Cummins diesel engine, paired with the Allison MD3060 push button transmission. Another great feature is the transmission having 6th gear unlocked, this allows for faster cruising speeds! The school had the motor professionally rebuilt about 4 years ago, there is less than 70K miles on the new motor. We have all service records for the life of the bus, including the engine rebuild which cost upwards of $18,000. This bus cruises comfortably at highway speeds, we’ve driven it over the Rockies and it cruised up the 10,000ft+ mountains like a champ! Going down steep grades is much safer with the brake retarder, no burning up your brakes or white knuckling the steering wheel! This bus can handle inclement weather with the push of a button, thanks to the automatic snow chains. The tires are great all the way around, and the upgraded LED taillights, blinkers and clearance marker lights look fantastic. The bus has 6 huge built in storage boxes, two of them pass all the way thru the entire width of the bus!
Now for the interior work that’s been done on this bus conversion platform. We raised the roof 15 inches, for over 7’4” of interior headroom! This opens up so many more floor plan possibilities, and makes the interior feel much more spacious. We installed RV windows, for better insulation and a fresh new look. The bus now has a brand new locking RV door, with a large window for driver visibility. The bus is primed inside and out, and is ready for an exterior paint job. The roof of the bus has been painted with three coats of white elastomeric paint. Three inches of spray foam insulation has been installed, making the bus have an insulation R-value that is equivalent to standard residential homes. The wheel wells have also been framed in and spray foamed to insulate and reduce road noise. The subfloor and wall framing are installed and the interior is completely ready to be built out.
This is the ultimate roof raised bus conversion platform. Whether you are a DIY’er or are planning on having the interior finished by a conversion company, you will be getting a huge head start on this solid, clean bus conversion platform. It is built from solid steel and riveted construction, those RV’s that seem to be made out of toothpicks don’t stand a chance. Adventure is waiting, come see this bus today!
