TLC Note: While this is not our typical kind of Classifieds listing, having a “portable” home on a farm property can really be a life-saver, especially for this price. Take a look farmers, this could be how you can save some money and start tilling that small plot you bought but don’t have a house on yet.
Important note: After servicing the bus, we decided based on recommendations from the shop to list this as a stationary home instead of a traveling one. Because of age and mileage, the bus would be best used if parked somewhere permanently. If you’re local to the Bloomington, IL area we can drive it to you. Visit roguecarrots.com for more pictures.
The gentleman we bought our skoolie from completely redid the conversion of a 1973 Crown 40 foot coach in 2001-2002. They slept in temperatures below zero as well as endured days above 100. When the skoolie became ours we improved the interior with 100 year old reclaimed hardwood floors, painted the entire inside as well as updated the design and functionality to make it work for a family with multiple children.
We love to cook using the the four burner gas European size stove. There’s space for a full-size household refrigerator, lots of counter space and full-size double sink fed by a Bosch on-demand water heater. You’ll be amazed at the amount of kitchen storage. We cooked 4 meals a day for our family easily in the space provided. Extra storage runs the length of the bus able to fit toys, books and misc home goods. The 32 X 32 shower and Splendide washer/dryer are fed from four 50 gal. stainless water tanks overhead and drain to a 100 gallon stainless black tank and 35 gallon gray tank. A newer 8D start batteries are also maintained by the solar panel to start the 855 cu. In. 250 hp Cummins with a touch of the key. The engine will use about a gallon of oil in 7,000 miles and transmits its ponies to the twin drive axles through a bullet-proof six-speed Allison RT70 transmission. The bathroom features a high quality Sea Land china toilet and a stainless steal bathroom sink. The large closet space will fit a 4 drawer dresser and hanging rack. We fit 4 people’s clothing comfortably in the closet. The genuine hardwood floor, warm wood paneling and propane fireplace add class and coziness to this tiny home. We hope someone else will enjoy it as much as we did.
