Bluebird Bus Conversion
This is my Bluebird TC2000 bus conversion RV, popularly known by those who camp in them as a "Skoolie." It has a Cummins 6BT diesel engine and an Allison MT543 automatic transmission. A Skoolie is a good choice for a large RV because it has the frame and running gear of a logging truck and the body is designed to stand up to a rollover. This makes it a safer and more robust vehicle than the typical Class A RV. I also like the fact that I can put my motorcycle right in the back of it; no trailer required. I no longer have the slide-in camper. It had to go to make room for this skoolie.
