My father converted buses into land yachts. He also was the person who designed tuna boats much like the Northwestern seen on Deadliest Catch.

This was a tour bus in Northern California. Then Yosemite tours rebuilt the engine and sold it. The bus drove up to my dad's shop in Washington, pulling in with 7,000 miles and has not moved since 1992. He raised the roof, put in custom windows, oak kitchen and bedroom, and it has all of the appliances new (shower, toilet, stove, refrigerator, etc.) but it just has to be put back together.

We have changed all the fluids, unstuck the rack, and started it. Runs so smooth and easy like the day it pulled into the shop. This is a real sleeper, and the only reason why you see it on the market is because I need a down payment for a home I want to buy. I only want this home and I only have a few weeks left to buy it. If I don't get this home, I am completing the renovation and buying property and living on the bus. This is really a once in a lifetime opportunity for both of us.

We have a manual transmission in the bus, and we have a refurbished Allison automatic transmission (0 miles) bought specifically for the bus.
