Blue Bird school bus in the process of converting into a Skoolie.  Roof raised 20” and exterior has been skinned with sheet metal.  It needs one minor sheet metal finish (I have metal and tools).  It is ready for windows, wiring, plumbing and insulation.


Included is new roof rail system that runs entire length of bus for mounting solar panels &/or rooftop deck.


Engine runs strong and it’s a huge plus that this is a diesel pusher (engine in rear) which results in a much quieter ride up front.


I am selling as I have a new venture that is taking up all my time.


I have bus rating plates, bus manual, Skoolie manual, Skoolie build manual, floor plans, and construction notes (project plan & sources for equipment/materials).


This is ready for someone to make into a Skoolie, Tiny Home, or unique VRBO home on a piece of property.

Blue Bird has an excellent reputation for bus construction and this creates a perfect foundation for any build out.
