Somewhat sadly, we are selling our dream bus. We built it to live life on the road, with specific care to every detail of the build, getting it exactly like we wanted it. However, because of the perfect job opportunity, we decided to settle down into suburban life, and are now selling Little Blue.


This is an awesome TC2000 Blue Bird in the “3/4” size range. Not a short bus, and not a major rig. Perfect for driving around, but also ample living space.


We designed the interior to be extra spacious in the front quarters and to tuck the bed and bunks in the rear. We also went with a closed off rear garage for utilities, insulation value, and extra storage. And because of our local climate, we decided to put not one, but TWO Dometic Penguin ll AC units on board. Each unit is the more heavy duty, high-capacity model, going from 10k BTUs to 13,500k BTUs each. All to say, this bus gets ice cold when hooked up to full power. Also added was a custom fabricated, engineer spec’d roof top deck for hanging out, or extra storage.


All in all, there are a ton of cool features on this bus, as well as tons of future options available to add as you go.


The fact sheet below should have most all of the nitty gritty details, features, and build info needed. If you have any questions though, feel free to ask! We love bus talk!


This is now the second bus we’ve built, and would have been the second we lived in, but now it’s your turn!


We are very motivated to sell! We are asking for $65,000 as of now, but are completely open to reasonable offers! Please feel free to reach out at:

Maintenance Needs:


*Bus needs at least (4) rear dually tires replaced before long drives. This can be negotiated in final sale.


*Current (and original) speedometer works but sporadically, especially in cold weather. A new $300 aftermarket speedometer will come with the bus, uninstalled. Mileage is accurate and still reading on original gauge, and will be left installed for proof of mileage.


*Buyer is responsible for any inspections done before purchase. This is an “as is” sale, therefore there are no warranties or guarantees made for interior/exterior structure, powertrain/mechanical, appliances, utilities, drivability, safety, legality, or any other aspect of the bus or its use. Seller is not responsible for legal ability of registration or insurance. Buyer is responsible for ensuring the bus is legal to own and operate by their own state’s laws, and are also responsible to ensure they are able to obtain proper insurance (but we’ve been able to insure it State Farm thus far).
