My Fiancée and I have been living, working, and traveling in our bus, lovingly called Tío Aventura for the last year and a half. We've recently decided to go a bit smaller and downsize our life into a sprinter van to take on international trips. We've decided to sell our tiny home on wheels.

The skoolie has been maintained ahead of schedule since we purchased it in April 2018, never broken down, and was fleet serviced until February 2018 when it left Metropolitan Nashville School District. Oil, oil filters, and fuel filters were changed September 2019, 1200 miles ago.

This is a ZERO RUST bus. Walls are insulated with rigid foam board. IT IS MOVE IN READY.
