Built in 1998, this Thomas Saf-T Liner was converted to an RV in 2009. The owners gutted the interior and replaced the open space with household quality cabinetry.
This diesel pusher bus now serves as a house on wheels.
One benefit of using household type materials in a bus conversion is that repair and replacement of worn parts is a lot easier and cheaper. RV parts tend to have a premium associated with them, whereas household repair parts are readily (and cheaply) available at your local home improvement store.
The 3116 Caterpillar engine has 211,397 miles on it, but should last for many years to come.
The bus also has a long list of creature-comforts you’re sure to enjoy like:
- 17 foot awning
- four top propane-powered stove with oven
- 5 gallon electric water heater
- apartment sized fridge (!)
- floating laminate flooring
- pantry with solid granite counter top
Now that’s a stove you can cook off of.
A master bedroom with full-size bed and two additional bunks provide plenty of sleeping area.
One of the things that is missing however is a waste water tank. The bus is meant to be used with hookups, and you’ll have to add a gray/black water system if you’re interested in boondocking (there’s plenty of room under the bus to add this though).
