My School Bus toy hauler project
Posted 20 August 2009 - 04:28 AM
I think I can do the whole project for less than $5,000.You will be surprised at how much stuff you can find for free or next to nothing if you just ask.I have 90 to 95% of the stuff to finish the project,I just need 2 weeks off work to get the project done.
I think once I get the bus painted,and the rooms and garage framed it will start going together fast.
Stay tuned for more pictures!

I have a class A CDL,but no passenger endorsement.
And as someone else said"How often do you see a school bus pulled over by cops?

A short bus like that would probably be super cheap and not having to pay labor on fiberglassing cuts the costs way down. Fiberglass is cheap, someone who can do decent work with fiberglass is not.
The short bus totally defeats the purpose of converting a bus into a toy hauler w/ seperate living quarters.

How are you sealing the metal exterior panel at the top to prevent leaks? Is there a factory drip edge where the roof rolls down and transitions to the exterior side?

There is a drip edge at the top,and the new panel has a drip edge at the bottom.I'm making a piece from aluminum for the front that has the same contour at the ribs in the panels
I'm going to seal the whole thing with a 50yr.window caulk.I hope to get it painted this weekend.

I think I read on his last page of his site that he only had 14k into the whole project, including the cost of the bus.
They built it for him on Overhaulin so he didn't have that much into it.
