2005 Freightliner, 6.4L Mercedes Diesel (Fully Converted)
2005 Freightliner, 6.4L Mercedes diesel, with only 149,000 miles. Air suspension + brakes, with newly replaced air tanks, brakes and drums, and a new exhaust. Runs beautifully! Title in hand.
- Subfloor was wire brushed to remove any rust, and all holes were patched
- Treated with rust converter and painted it with rust-oleum to prevent further rusting
- felt to prevent any moisture getting on the wood
- 2x4s to lay a foundation for the flooring, and added 1.5 inch foam board insulation in between the foundations for insulation (R-7.5), and used plywood to cover.
- Underlayment was laid before the water resistant laminate flooring.
- Studs are placed on each rib of the bus and frame each window and towards the floor.
- Kitchen – Everything is 100% electric, this includes the stove oven. The sink is a VERY large farmhouse sink that has given many bathes to our little one.
- Sofa/futon– this would be easy to remove if you wanted to continue to build out to your seating preferences
- Across from the kitchen is the desk, sofa and coffee bar. All of this is removable and not built in, so if you could make that area your own! If not, there are hook on the wall to help secure the furniture during travel.
- Primed and ready for paint
- 6 new tires purchased last year
- Bus originally bought from Maryland- there is rust underneath. The previous owner had it inspected and assessed. It was determined the rust did not impact the integrity of the bus. When we brought it home we had it looked at by a shop again. The guy ensured there was no damage to the frame and there was a lot of life left in her!
- It also has storage bins on the underside of the bus so that’s a plus.
- All the electrical was ran and installed with a Master Electrician. 12/2 wire for outlets and 14/2 for the 12v system.
- 12v System includes the Water Pump, Composting Toilet Fan, RV Vent Fan, Front and back LED cabin lights.
- All of the 12v appliances are powered by an Ecoflow solar battery with 1.2KWh of capacity. There is an outlet underneath the bed where it is plugged in for when you are on shore power. Otherwise, you can run it off solar panels.
- Installed an RV water inlet with a vent, gravity fill and city connection. When hooked up via the city water, it by passes the water pump so no issues there.
- 65 Gal water tank underneath the bed
- 6 Gal boat water heater. 110v heating element with the option of a dual loop heat exchanger. (Makes very hot water) KUUMA 6 Gallon Side Mount Water Heater with Heat Exchanger, 120V | West Marine
- 62.6 Gal Black Tank – Have a Nature’s Head Composting toilet (2 months old), so everything that went in the tank was just water to wash dishes.
- Shower is hooked up and 90% finished. Just has a couple cosmetic pieces left for the next owner. Otherwise, in working condition!
