YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY, IT WON’T LAST LONG! Direct injection diesel, no DEF required. This bus was owned by one church that completed regular maintenance prior to conversion. All the hard work has already been done and this conversion is near done with plenty of room for you to complete with your own finishing touches. Perfect for a family of 4 with TONS of storage space throughout for all your travel needs. Whether you are a weekend warrior or want to live in Dorothy full time, the storage space is far more than you will find in any manufactured RV (We have looked and confirmed this). Dorothy was converted during the Covid lock downs and with current busy schedules we don’t have the time to finish our dream. We want to pass Dorothy on to someone that can enjoy her as much as we wanted to.

This bus was stripped down to the sheetmetal, roof, and Wood Subfloor and built from the bones using solid wood construction throughout. All leaky windows were sealed, all mold and any rust behind original walls was treated and removed. There is no particle board or cheap materials anywhere in the build. There are spots on the passenger side of the bus where the original church signage was that is peeling. Spots have been cleaned and primed over to prevent rust. Undercarriage is very clean and has never been used in the north so no salt or rust damage.

I have done all of the work myself and have not spared any time or expense for the work I have done on this conversion. I would be glad to discuss any parts of the build with serious buyers and I can share pictures of the build process to confirm items listed in this description. Feel free to call or text.
