We are selling our beloved Bus (Barnebus) due to finding a home in Revelstoke. She is a Ford E350 2006 Bus (past life was a hospital transfer bus), bought in Vancouver,BC in April this year. She would be a great project during the winter for Spring/Summer travels around Canada.
The floor has been stripped back and a layer of reflectix installed also Inch insulation is fitted between the floor joists for added insulation.
The walls and roof are insulated with standard inch fiberglass insulation. (didn't have money to fit rigid insulation) but can be easily done.
I removed the back 4 windows with the intention of insulating and covering with cladding.
We have been on some amazing adventures but wish to settle down for Fall/Winter and explore Canada via rail later next year before leaving for more adventures around the world.
She comes with;
Camp Chef Oven + 5lb propane tank ($10) to fill which can last a month
2 Fresh Water tanks + 1 waste water
4 Solar panels at 100 watts each (Brand - Renogy)
2x AGM 75ah Deep Cycle RV/Marine Batteries
Fantastic Fan Vent
Cushions that make bed/sofa (Handmade by Molly’s Mum all the way from the UK!)
2x Collapsable tables (Small + Large)
2x Collapsable chairs for outdoors chilling
Fitted locks on rear door
Secured Safe + Cupboards
Lots of Storage
New Fitted Ladder
Crockery,Cutlery + Cookware, Kettle, Camp Toaster
No fridge - would need a cooler or 12v fridge.
Domestic camping toilet + tabs (deep-cleaned)
Coleman propane heater
Oil change and rear diff oil was done in July 2018
Does need leaving to idle in these colder months but once warm runs smooth.
Recently made a trip from Revelstoke to Vancouver and back to collect our winter gear and she handled the journey with ease.
New Starter motor was fitted start of august
Kilometers: 423,000km i know it seems alot But if you know these engines they can go for upto and beyond 1,000,000kms
Fuel: Diesel (full tank will cost $150 and you’ll get about 800-1000km depending on the terrain.)
honestly this bus has enabled us to see so much at a more affordable cost around B.C. we have both enjoyed building it and are sad to see her go.
There were 1000's of things more that i wanted to do to it!
-install more storage (even though there is loads already)
-it has the potential for a fixed shower
If you need any more information please do not hesitate to contact us.
All the best
Mike + Molly
