For sale is a partially converted bus. It actually used to be an Alabama prison bus in it's earlier life. That means little to no rust! The bus has around 80k miles. The previous owners had the governor changed so the bus is no longer limited to 55mph. This bus has a T444E (basically same as 7.3 diesel) and an Allison AT545 automatic transmission. Hydraulic brakes. This bus was manufactured in March 1999. 

This is a seven window mid bus. In between a short bus and full size bus. The bus has had all seats removed, floor primed and painted, insulated then sub-flooring and flooring put down. The floor and walls have two layers of Reflectix. The bus features a lock on both the side and back door. There are two unfinished closets. One with overhead storage. In the back there is a raised platform with a queen Serta mattress. Underneath the platform there is storage on each side near the walls. The "kitchen/sitting area" features a set of cabinets, and a bench seat with storage underneath. This bench could easily be turned into a twin sized bed with the included foam. We have taken this bus to West Virginia and camped in 20 degree weather. We stayed warm with a Mr. Buddy propane heater. This bus is sealed tight. The bus heater also works great while driving. 

No issues driving it, though it will need new front tires before full-timing in it. The bus can be used as is for a basic camper. It doesn't feature electrical or plumbing. Our plan was to tear it down and rebuild it but we have decided to go in a different direction with our adventures. We would love to see someone just as passionate as us purchase the bus and turn in into an awesome adventure rig! The bus definitely has good bones and would be a good base for any type of conversion. The bus is already titled as an motorhome in Ohio.
