Our bus has been sold. Thank you to everyone who reached out with questions and interest!

We are keeping this post up for posterity.

As hard as it’s going to be for us to part with our school bus home, we are really excited to offer it for sale to the skoolie community. We have lived and traveled in the bus with our kids for the last 3 years. It has been a source of countless memories and adventures. It is now time for us to sell it to help fund the next leg of our journey.

Below you will find all of the information about the bus as well as photos. We maintain an Instagram where you can see more photos here. Make sure to check out the highlights on our page to see a full tour of the bus.
