2011 International CE Boondocking ready

Drivers side
Pictured here is the large solar array and grey tank. Unlabeled on this side is the shore power inlet, the water fill and an exterior 120v outlet.
Passenger Side
Visible are the 3 custom doors on the bus, and the exterior unit of the mini split. The peeled paint from a mistake have also been fixed on the rear doors, finally warm enough!
Main View
From the front left going backwards: Electrical Cabinet (below), customizable storage space (above), Dinette, Fridge, Pocket door, Bathroom (to be customized) and queen size bed. From the front right moving backwards: 3 in 1 chair / recliner / bed, 6 1/2 foot kitchen (waiting for personal preference of induction or propane burner), double bay sink, customizable storage pantry, 32" x 32" shower, Queen bed. The 9000 BTU mini split is visible on the back wall.
Kitchen
6 1/2 foot kitchen, custom cabinets made of one continuous piece of plywood cut by hand, with the overhead cabinets on display as well. The dishwasher holds 6 place settings, is more water efficient than washing by hand as well.
Bed
There is space for a queen size bed in the back, with 3 feet of headroom, plenty to sit up and move about in. The recessed nooks on the back left wall hold phone chargers. Not pictured are touch button controls for the lights. The lights down the center and above the windows are on separate dimming circuits.
Electrical
Most important info besides the notations on the image, is that there is space for a second battery, which would increase the storage capacity to 10 kwh, a huge amount.
Garage
The Washer / Dryer, Water heater which can be expanded if needed by preference, 100 gallon freshwater tank. The bare metal on the left by the washer is the emergency door space, picture taken from the wheel chair door angle.
Unfished Bathroom
This space for the bathroom is unfinished, many people have ideas and opinions about the bathroom, and I will make the bathroom to your requests.
Fridge / Storage
10 Cubic foot fridge, and the space highlighted on the image are places in which your preferences for storage and doors can be implemented. Large spaces, small shelving, hooks, etc. We'll make this space better fit your needs!
Storage
This space is currently left empty for your flexibilty. I will build it to reflect the storage solutions you think will work best with your lifestyle. It can be a a pantry, closet, combination, with shelves, or doors, or whatever you think will work the best, labor and materials (within reason) are included.

This is a 29’ long, 4-Season Off Grid 2011 IC CE 3000 with 150,000 miles, a 12” roof raise, sleeps 4 or 5 and seats 5, and well insulated with spray foam. The bus was designed with the goal of being able to boondock full time for as much of the year as possible, and to be repairable. It has not been lived in so far, the bus started as a custom build for a travel nurse who then later had unexpected things come up, so I let them out of the contract. I changed the plans and finished the build to sell. There are still some smaller opportunities for customization of the bus to fit your needs more precisely. If you think of any further pictures that you would like to see, reach out and ask for them! I’m happy to also give a facetime tour as you would like.

I’m open to reasonable offers, I think the bus is worth what it is listed at, but I’m willing to hear other offers or opinions about it’s worth. If you’re just browsing and just interested in knowing more, feel free to email me with any questions you might have. I’m happy to share some of the things I learned building 3 buses by now. If you’re looking for a custom bus of your own, let me know!

Solar Production Summary – 

Understanding the amount of solar power this will produce and if it will be enough for your planned lifestyle is a very difficult question to answer. If you’re traveling north and south with the weather and give some thought to your energy usage, I would expect no issues for the majority of the year. It, like any other setup, would require a generator or a shore power plug on occasion for snow storms or staying somewhere very cloudy. If you have questions about how well the solar panels would enable your ideas, feel free to email. 

 

Heating Energy usage – 

The Mini Split’s heating performance offers a Coefficient of Performance of on average 3.5. This means for every kw of energy given to the system it can generally offer 3.5 kw of heat into your space. This is much more efficient than a typical air conditioner, and provides a very quiet and efficient way to heat your space. Recently, on a cold (25 degree) northern indiana day, the unit consumed about 5 Kwh of electricity, the full battery to keep it 70 degree’s inside. This was also without anyone inside to heat it with their normal activities and bodies, which would help considerably. 

The Cooling COP is 4.5, and less of a concern energy usage wise because of the fact that when it’s hot outside, there is likely more solar power too, and the bus should have no trouble keeping cool on hot sunny days. 

 

Financing

  • Looking for a cash offer, but am willing to consider Seller Financing depending on the circumstance, but I would still be looking for a large down payment, at least half the value of the bus. 

 

Delivery

  • I can Deliver the bus to anywhere necessary in the US, for the total price of the trip, (fuel, trip home, food, etc), and with a Deposit. 

 

Distance bumper to Bumper – 29 feet

Bumper to Mini Split – 31 feet

Wheel base length – 21 feet
