2009 40ft Thomas Skoolie
Engine is a 6.7L Cummins with an Allison 2500 Tranny (have driven up to 80mph before)

EDIT** I have had numerous asks for the names of the builders and the list of the issues. Please read the bottom of this ad for the list. The builders are @phoenixskoolbuses on Instagram. I have receipts and conversations as proof so this is not slander or abuse. Yes, it is unfortunate they did not stand by their work and refund my money. Yes, I have lost over $75,000 now including my 401k and all of my savings trying to get back on my feet. Yes this bus needs work which is why it is so cheap. Yes, it would be nice if the builders, @phoenixskoolbuses would have taken the bus back, refunded me my money, and allowed me to move on with my life. Unfortunately they are uncooperative. No, I do not recommend their work and yes they put my life in danger when they installed faulty wiring that now needs to be fixed (see list of issues at bottom of ad).

 Asking $18,000 OBO. 


Previously a blood bus for the Red Cross, purchased in May and converted by builders in Mt. Pleasant, Texas. I paid well over $64,000 to have it converted and delivered to me because I do not have the skills or time to do it myself. However, the bus was delivered unfinished and has since had some problems I am unable to manage. Unfortunately, as I did not have the time or skill to build it myself, I also do not have the time, money, or knowledge to pursue finishing it and need to sell it in order to get back on my feet. Because the builders have refused to take responsibility for their actions I need to sell this as soon as possible at an extremely discounted price. I have included all of the new, technical aspects I have at my fingertips below (and that I can think of). I did not build this but had this commissioned and therefore I do not know all of the ins and outs, I’m sorry. The bus will need to be bought as-is. There will be no buy-backs or returns.

It can be something so amazing it just needs someone who knows how to finish getting it there.

Known Issues:

  • Damage from tire blowout to undermount plumbing
  • Exhaust has rusted thru lengthwise as well as supports
  • Two windows added in back bedroom by builders did not have inside frames added
  • Two windows were delivered with cracks
  • Interior wood painted by builders was not sealed and therefore has warped
  • Generator will not turn on - it is new and should be covered under the warranty but it has never worked from the time the bus was delivered to me
  • Reverse lights/noise do not work
  • Builder delivered bus with warning that there was an oil cap missing in the engine.
  • Battery/Inverter wiring is faulty* builders did not install redundancy and used too small wires causing safety hazard. Wires melted and need to be redone.
  • I was only in the bus for a total of five days and did not use or attempt to use every part. Therefore things such as the washer and dryer and oven and diesel heater and untested.

***This bus is located in Avondale, Arizona. I am unable to deliver and only able to get to it on Saturdays. I can do virtual ‘walk-throughs’ on Saturdays if desired.***
