ABOUT THE BUS:
▪ Make & Model: 2001 Thomas MVP-EF
▪ Engine: Cummins 5.9 - 24 Valve
▪ Transmission: Allison MT643
⁃ This is a great engine/transmission combination
▪ Length: 40’ Long Bumper to Bumper

⁃ Odometer was replaced by bus lot
⁃ Miles are based on info from original owner/bus lot
▪ Max Speed: 75 mph according to speedometer; 70/71 mph according to GPS
- LOVES to climb hills
⁃ We think there might be a governor on it that could still be removed
▪ TEXAS Bus
⁃ Never driven on salted roads
⁃ Was used as the “back up bus” on the bus lot when another bus was being serviced; therefore, low mileage.
⁃ We purchased in 2021 from son-in-law of bus lot manager who was planning to convert it, but didn’t do any work on it.
⁃ We drove it from TX to NC where we worked on the conversion.
⁃ It’s been driven around in NC some.
- Recently moved bus from NC to Cincinnati, Ohio where we live.

- 1 hose union was replaced & battery cables were fixed
- all else was in good working order

▪ Motor Home Registration in Vermont

WHAT’S BEEN DONE:
▪ Tropicool painted on top

- We sealed around the holes on the roof when we painted w/ Tropicool
⁃ Bus was in a rainy part of NC for over a year and just recently started to leak in where the bolts come into the bus when there is a heavy rain
▪ Should be an easy fix
▪ No other leaks detected
▪ 2 Dometic Rooftop New A/C units (still need to purchase air distribution units for the interior of the bus)
⁃ Units were mounted on a custom made steel frame where the emergency roof hatches were
⁃ Plastic “framing” around the hatch openings was replaced with brand new framing that was made specifically for this make/model of bus
▪ New Tires all around (6 tires)
⁃ Tires were on the 1st bus we owned (NC bus) & were brand new when we purchased that bus
⁃ We drove that bus from NC to PA & back before selling it, but had the tires from our 1st bus put on this bus

PRICE:
▪ $15,500 OBO (without appliances)
▪ Add appliances (washer, dryer, 2 refrigerators) and pay $17,500 total
▪ Make us a Reasonable Offer and we’ll consider it
▪ Cash or PopMoney only
▪ Prefer you pick it up;
may consider delivery for a fee

HOW TO SEE IT:
▪ If you want to see the bus, please only message me to set up a time to see it if you are a serious buyer and have the cash to spend.
▪ While we enjoy meeting new people, we do not have time to show it to people who are just curious to see the makings of a skoolie.
▪ I have a few more photos and videos that I can share

WHY WE’RE SELLING, ETC.:
▪ Like many others, our life is going in a different direction and we don’t have time to finish our build. We had planned to build this bus to live in full time.
▪ It’s a “clean slate” ready to be built the way you want. The prep work is mostly finished and it’s ready to be framed and built out.
▪ There is a tiny bit of framing in the rear of the bus that was to be our “garage space.” We also put a few boards on the ceiling to see what they would look like & there is a small area framed for the washer to sit on. All can be easily removed.
▪ Exterior will need a bath as it’s been sitting in NC for a while as we have not had time to work on it.
▪ Bus has been started/run regularly and starts right up.
