I ALWAYS WAS, AND
ALWAYS WILL BE
,
A HUGE SUPPORTER OF THE
TINY HOME

AND SKOOLIE COMMUNITY.
 PROVIDING RELIABLE BUSES 

FOR ALL CONVERSIONS,

INCLUDING FOOD TRUCKS
AND OTHER
USES. YOU ARE
LIMITED ONLY BY

YOUR IMAGINATION.

If you have a bus in mind, but
are struggling to find it,
let me know.  I will help
you find it.

* there will be additional
fees on top of the sale price.
We have a $320 dealer fee.
You may be required to
pay sales tax, title transfer
fees, license plate and
registration fees, or
other necessary fees.
Each state is different.


When miles are indicated with
** on this website, they were
taken off the odometer of
the bus.  Not the ECM.  There
is no way to ever guarantee
the actual miles on any
big truck or bus.

************************

I was the first to add
these terms to a dealer website.

EGR
Exhaust gas recirculation.
On most 2004 and newer
Internatinoal DT466E
and 2005 and newer V8 IC
diesel bus engines.  Other
manufacturers may not
have used it.  Caterpillar
did not use it before they
had to meet the 2007
emissions standards, which
included a DPF and was found
on most 2008 models.

DPF
Diesel Particulate Filter
On most 2008 and newer
diesel engines.  This is where "regen"
comes into play.  Cummins put
it on all of their diesel engines,
including their 6.7L diesel.
Detroit Diesel put it on their
Mercedes MBE900 engines.
Caterpillar added it to the C7.
On an International, if
it says Maxxforce, whether the
DT or the 7, it has DPF.

DEF/SCR
Diesel Exhaust Fluid/
Selective Catalytic Reduction
This system is found on most
2010 and newer diesel engines.
International never used it on
their Maxxforce DT through
the 2016 model year, when
the IC CE300 with a Maxxforce
DT ended production.  All other
diesel engine manufacturers
used SCR to meet the emission
requirements for 2010 models.
I have had some 2011 models
that did not have SCR and did
not use DEF.

VGT
Variable geometry turbo
These are found on many diesel
engines. International started using
them on the DT466E and were
used on the VT365 and other
International engines produced
afterwards.  Detroit Diesel used
them on the Mercedes MBE engine
after 2007, as did Caterpillar use
them on the C7 after 2007.
MY MISSION:
    For 52 years, I have
sold used school buses.
My goal has never been to
sell you a bus.  It is to make
sure you don't buy the wrong
bus!  We offer FREE
information on bus-related
concerns.
    We search the entire country
for the best buses. We drive
our buses from the schools.
We strive to have the best
used buses in the United
States. We strive to have
the cleanest used buses.
    My primary market is
NOT export. It is churches
and non-profit organizations.
What they do for our
communities is incredible.
I do what I do so they can
do what they do, BETTER. By
offering these organizations

BETTER BUSES at BETTER PRICES,
they can perform their
transportation duties BETTER.
    Another target market for me
has been the skoolie conversion,
tiny home, RV conversion, and
work truck conversion people.
School buses make a wonderful
tiny house and many people live
full-time in their school bus
conversion. Others choose to
build RVs out of a good, used
school bus.  Their durability
and reliability far exceeds
that of a regular used vehicle.
    The buses we sell have had
great maintenance since new.
They were driven to Florida from
wherever they were in service,
usually many hundreds of miles.
If we find anything wrong with
the bus, we have it repaired
before it is offered for sale.
    Also, food truck conversions are
popular.  School buses also make
wonderful transport vehicles
for many small businesses.
   Our buses truly are BETTER.
Come see us.  You will quickly see
how much BETTER our buses are,
how much more knowledgeable we
are, and how much more willing we
are to help.
    We strive to be the BEST.
