This bus is ready for four-season off-grid camping and weeks-long boondocking. It is entirely self-sufficient for electrical, including cooling in summer. On several occasions, it supplied power to other skoolies and RVs that didn’t have enough power while running its own systems. The alternator can fully recharge the batteries from zero to 100 in only two hours thanks to the 200 plus amps of charging (2,500W).

It’s proven to be an incredibly reliable bus; it’s been through 49 states and Canada without major issue. All fluids, belts, and other routine maintenance was done by me at or before recommended intervals. This bus spent a winter in the Yukon Territory with temperatures dropping down to -40. Water pipes do not freeze below 0F thanks to being run inside the bus.

At 26 feet, this bus is easily maneuverable through cities and parking lots and a lot of fun to drive compared to bigger rigs. The cab is set up to be comfortable for long trips, with an air-ride seat, tablet and phone mounts, and backup camera.

It has a ton of storage between the deep bench seats in the main cabin, two extra undercarriage boxes, and the garage, aside from the storage you’d expect in the kitchen and bedroom areas. The hidden swing-away pantry is one of everyone’s favorite features, because it utilizes the otherwise wasted space of the shower to quadruple the amount of kitchen storage available.

I’ve enjoyed traveling in this bus for the last four years, but after building an overlanding vehicle last fall, it’s time to part with it and allow someone else to enjoy the same adventures in it I’ve been fortunate enough to experience.
