Our Magic Bus is a 32 Foot fully converted and fully loaded Senior Activity Center bus. She has a beautiful custom interior with 6 of the original bus seats intact. The driver and front passenger seats and 4 seats at the dinette table all with seat belts. We loved the original colors so a lot of the interior design reflects that. Everything inside the bus is custom built. It's insulated throughout and has all new vinyl plank flooring. Large storage bins under the pull out couch and dinette seats. Overhead storage and custom shelves in the bedroom as well as a foyer storage area for shoes, boots and outside gear, a large food pantry and locking drawer cabinets for dishes and utensils, etc.
The steel roll cage offers a lot of strength, safety and durability and is the main reason we decided to convert a bus in the first place.

***Very minor exterior damage on front passenger corner of the bus (10-12" crack in fiberglass where the previous owner bumped a metal gate post). Easily repaired if you have fiberglass experience. It doesn't hurt anything it's merely cosmetic and didn't bother us.
This bus is amazing and fun and is hard to let go of but we're selling her to fund our next project. She runs and drives great and is ready to be loved by her new family!!
