This 2000 Bluebird Skoolie has a Cummins 8.3 CM 550 engine, a completely rebuilt automatic Allison transmission (May 2021), and brand new fuel pump (July 2023). The odometer reads 145,619.
Tires are in great shape with lots of tread left. There is a backup camera installed as well as a WIFI receiver.
There is a greasel adaptor for this beauty, installed during the original build. If you are looking for an eco-friendly ride, this is it. There are two 120 watt solar panels on the front portion of the roof that feed into 4 deep cycle batteries. The inverter is located inside on the front bench nook.
The bus was built out of locally sourced Vermont pine. The master bedroom is a queen platform with plenty of storage underneath. There is a set of bunk beds with ample storage across from a small desk with lighting.
The bathroom needs some love, however there is a Nature’s Head Composting Toilet with a permanent exhaust tube – in three years I’ve never smelled any foul odors!
Plenty of storage in the kitchen area – open shelves below and covered cabinets above. Sink is stainless steel duel basin and there is a 3 burner stove top that is hooked up to a propane tank under the bus near the caboose. The refrigerator is 6 watts and can run off-grid with solar.
Surround sound speakers were installed through the front of the bus – can play CD’s or AUX. Subwoofer located in the kitchen really sets the vibe.
There is an 8 foot skoolie roof deck built on the rear of the bus, allowing for panoramic views and outdoor sleeping.
The bus was last registered in Connecticut as an RV. Title in hand.
This bus would be wonderful for a family looking to live life on the road, a homeowner with land that would like to have an AirB&B or club house. This bus is cozy, homey, and ready for making memories!
Items that need repair: deep cycle battery replacements (4), will need to hook up to WIFI receiver, replace clean water pump and both fresh water/gray water tanks (1 new 30 gallon tank will be provided), rear flooring (aesthetic), paint job (aesthetic)
