Skoolie For Sale - SOLD!

UPDATE: The bus has been sold to a great guy taking her on a new adventure. 

---

My journey with the bus has come to an end and it's time to pass this amazing mobile tiny home on to another for their adventures.

 

The bus is currently configured as a skoolie / tiny home, but could easily be changed into a sweet party bus, AirBNB, guest house, or other use.

 

The bus started it's life as a 1991 Ward International 65 passenger school bus. It's loaded for mountain/winter driving. I converted it from a school bus into a skoolie / tiny home and took it on an epic 12,000 mile road trip from Denver to Alaska and back. Fully titled as a motorhome.

Other notes:

She's ready to go on another adventure. Just add your personal items and a couple of pots and pans. Pretty much everything else is included. The kitchen is fully stocked with plates, silverware, cooking utensils.

 

Note on the electronic driveline retarder: This is not a "JakeBrake" or engine brake. This is a frictionless electromagnet that slows down the rotation of the driveline to slow the bus. By using the retarder system on steep declines you save wear on the brakes, but it's also a safer method of controlling the speed of the vehicle on long downhills. I drove down I-70 from Eisenhower Tunnel without more than an occasional tap on the brakes to slow for a curve. It makes driving downhill MUCH safer and is probably the number one selling point of this bus.
