2010 Chevy 4WD Microbird Finished Skoolie
2010 FOUR WHEEL DRIVE! finished bus.
We built this in 2018 and traveled for a year fulltime. We are no longer using it enough to make it worth keeping and have decided to sell.
The bus was bought in Montana and a Quigley 4WD was installed in 2011 by the school district. The 4WD works great, we’ve used it a ton and have never had any issues. No significant rust.
The bus has everything you need, we spent a year living in it boondocking 80% of the time.
Electrical: 400W solar, battery charger, inverter, controller, two Lifeline batteries with 400Ah total. Victron display/controller that connects via bluetooth. Solar panels are both brand new as of 2021 (Original ones were old and needed to be replaced).
Plumbing: 25 gal Grey water and 30 gal Fresh water tank, composting toilet (nature’s head) so no black water tank needed, Shower, electric hot water heater that can be run off solar, Kitchen sink.
Kitchen: Large Dometic refrigerator/Freezer, toaster oven, Propane stovetop
Propane heater and electric Air Conditioner. We did lots of cold weather camping (Below zero at times) and the bus stays nice and warm. Screens built onto the windows and rooftop fan for summer camping.
There is a queen bed, baby crib, and space for a large dog bed. A long couch with a table that slides out from under the bed the full length of the couch.
Up front is two seats for driver and passenger, original front bus seat is still installed for car seats. Two large car seats fit comfortably but there are three seatbelts on the seat.
Tons of storage cabinets up front and a large space under the bed accessed from the back door for storage.
We keep two bikes on the front and there’s a generator box mounted on the back. Bus length is 24′ with box and bikes. Only 20′ without them.
All new tires and brakes installed June 2021, tires have maybe 10k miles on them at most.
Has been stored at our house plugged up to electricity and with a dehumidifier running for the last two years. (Except for one cross country trip in 2021).
We’ve driven this across the country a few times, up to Alaska and all through Canada. Great bus, great engine! Have had no mechanical issues with it.
Bus is under GVWR fully loaded for fulltime living and full water.
The exterior paint is starting to peel off in small spots, will need to be touched up/redone if you feel the need.
