2007 Chevy 3500 Blue Bird Skoolie Reduced! OBO
Do not miss your chance to own this beautiful and reliable skoolie. She is turn key ready for adventure. Whether you want a weekend get away rig or to live full time this skoolie will meet all your needs.
I have owned this bus for nearly 5 years and have lived off and on in it. Running a super reliable 2006 6.6 Duramx Diesel engine with 224,000 miles on it. With proper care this engine should see beyond 400,000 miles in its lifetime.
She has a 35 gallon tank and HWY gets 10-12mpg depending on how fast you want to go. I am the second owner and have taken great measures to maintain it and keep up regular maintenance.
I have all the paper work for parts and repairs over the years. Some new parts include but are not limited to new Allison Transmission, A/C Compressor, Alternator, Radiator, Battery, new/fixed wiring harness, timing belt etc… I can provide more fixes, it has been in zero accidents.
The inside was beautifully remolded by myself, my father and some help from friends. It is completely insulated with closed cell R22 spray foam. Walking in through the bus doors you have storage for bags, jackets, skis, snowboards, skateboards etc. I kept the rubber floor in the front as a small mud room for taking off gear.
Above the doorway and drivers seat are custom built storage areas. In the front sites the 4000 series Dwarf Stove Brand wood burning stove. Included with 3 extra adjusters for creating slow low burning fires. I have had countless fires in the stove. I have spent time in 0 degree weather and with the stove running it is more than warm enough in the bus. Perfect for ski trips, mountain camping and any winter excursions.
The stove sits on a 7ft butcher block counter top that includes a 2 burner propane stove and a sink. I am including all my dish-ware, drying rack, silver ware etc if you want it. The sink has running water, and is supplied by a 20 gallon fresh tank and has a 10 gallon gray water tank. I have an attachment to turn the sink into an outdoor shower.
At the end of the kitchen is a drawer on the ground that fits a large yeti cooler or an RV fridge, the plug up is located in the rear. The drawer pulls out into the hallway and can be used as extra seating.
Across from the kitchen is the seating area that in the photos is set up in the work or table configuration. The seating area also converts to a couch. Underneath each bench is storage. There is one AC outlet with USB ports near the table. All the windows in the front have adjustable custom cut blinds that can be pulled up or down.
A Goal Zero 1250 Power bank powers the 8 led lights, 2 outlets w/usb, fridge, and water pump. The Goal Zero is charged several ways, the main way is by the 300 watts of solar via 3 panels installed on the roof. You can plug it into shore power at an RV site or simply unplug the battery completely and take it into your house to charge. It is a great power system and extremely user friendly. It is also easily chain-able if you want to add more 12v batteries to the set up.
Across from the closet with the power bank and rods for hanging clothes is another closet. It has built in storage and a rack for storage. I built the space large enough for a compost toilet but never personally found the need for one traveling. It is also a great space to store large toys like mountain bikes and surfboards.
The bedroom is in the back and has its own light switch, lights and AC outlet. There is a shelf for a projector and plenty of storage. It has a full sized memory foam bed.
All the windows have custom black out curtains. Underneath the bed is completely available for storage. You can easily fit 6 or 7 bins under there. It is accessible via the emergency back door or handicap door on the side.
The doors are also great for laying in bed and taking in a view. In the area accessed by the handicap door I have installed some racks for skis, snowboards fishing polls. In the back corner is the buses original diesel heater that quickly heats up the bedroom, it works best while driving.
Some additions to the outside have been made. There is a huge custom 6ft x 7ft composite wood deck that can hold about 700lbs. I’ve had 5 people up there and felt great. The ladder to get up is on the back. Makes a great place to watch sunsets. It also makes cleaning off the solar panels and snow very easy. A large awning on the side for shade.
This is an awesome skoolie and will serve you well. It would make a great ski rig or festival rig. You won’t find a better combination of craftsmanship and reliable engine. I can send more pictures for serious inquiries.
I am willing to take a trade, I am looking for a under 150,000 miles 4×4 truck and/or a truck bed camper. I will be selling it in South Carolina until January. If its not sold by then I will be driving it out to Denver, CO to sell it.
