  • This thing is a beast. I’ve taken it across country and it’s passed every test of mine - it will climb hills, its coasts beautifully on the highway, it starts up in the cold and high elevation and has required almost no maintenance since I bought it.
  • It’s super spacious (standing room inside), one of the most reliable skoolie models you can find, and is ready for you to take it to the mountains this weekend.
  • I’m only getting rid of this because I’m moving back to the East Coast with short notice, and I can’t drive two vehicles back. 

Basics about the bus:

  • - 2002 Ford E-450 Super Duty 7.3L Diesel (22 ft long)
  • - Tabs/registration: Valid through May 2024
  • - Odometer: ~176K miles
  • - Battery: Brand new as of April 2023
  • - Tires: Put on $2k tires in May 2021 @ 168K miles


  • I am the second owner after the school district. The first owner gutted the bus and built out the cabinetry only.
  • I purchased it in February 2021 with 168K and I did the following:
    • Converted vehicle class to an RV at the DMV, its been fully insured ever since.
    • Full professional tune up – Done, no major issues just replaces fluids, filters, and things like that.
    • Professionally installed Jensen Touchscreen Radio with Apple Car Play – Has Bluetooth and there’s a phone mount on the dash for your phone.
    • Professionally installed Additional Radio Speaker – This thing is loud enough to not need max volume on the highway. I’ve even used it for music at campsites cause its that good.
    • Professionally installed tongue and groove paneling
    • Professional installed Water system – I never ran out of hot water.
      • 42 Gallon water tank
      • Propane Hot water heater
      • Deep farmhouse sink with pull-down faucet; faucet swivels out window for outdoor shower.
      • 2 soap dispensers (in counter, extra spare biodegradable soap included)

      • Bought an expensive tri-fold queen mattress for the rear (bench also fold outs to a full bed, so sleeps 4 in total)
      • Put seat cover on driver seat (driver seat is the only seat with a seatbelt - theres room for a passenger seat to be installed next to the driver or seat belt can be added to the bench for easily 2 adults, maybe 3).

      • New in box - Portable Gas One Butane/Propane stove and 2 spare canisters
