It is with a heavy heart that I am parting with my short bus. I have put a ridiculous amount of time and thought into this thing, and it is a beast. It will climb up and down anything you tell it to in 4 low and handles crazy well on the highway considering it’s size. Has all the bells and whistles, and will carry all of your toys, from bikes to rafts to moving furniture. Interior has been overly thought out and is very versatile and functional. The exterior I have not painted, as I preferred the character of the bus color and you don’t have to worry about scratching it – but you can paint it any color that you would like! It is registered as an rv and I have not had any issues with insurance through state farm. I built this out to function as a shuttle rig for rafting trips and adventure. I just don’t use it enough to justify it, as I have only put 12k on it since I bought it 4 years ago. Below are the specs, along with all upgrades and features.

Please reach out if you have any questions. There is one issue with the bus, and that is that it is not starting well when the engine is hot and it is hot out. I had replaced the injection pump last fall and it worked great until recently now since it has been so warm recently. I have learned that you need to buy the high end injection pumps to make sure they rebuilt everything, and I only had replaced it with a middle of the road one. Anyways, it runs awesome and starts great when the engine is cold, I just drove to moab and back and it ran great. Also If you were to install a turbo on this thing (I was soo close) it would drive like a present day car. You can get a kit for around $2,500. Throw an aluminum deck on the roof and you are set.

$40,000 OBO

Nice bus. I have a 1988 International Uhaul with the 7.3 IDI engine. It had a hot start problem, finally it wouldn't start at all and it was the lift pump. It was a lot easier and cheaper than an injection pump.

Thank you! I was wondering about that for a bit, and almost replaced it a couple weeks ago. thanks for the advice - ordered one and will install it on saturday!
