Meet Texas Tiny Homes Newly Acquired 2002 International Bus. It’s in great shape and only has 61,700 miles on it. It’s powered by the International Harvester T444E diesel engine. It has front and rear air-conditioning, but the two compressors are either both low on Freon, or they are both bad, or something else is preventing them from blowing cold.
I bought it from a church in Nacogdoches, who put 2 brand new batteries last week, and a brand new starter solenoid, and they got the annual state of Texas inspection last week too.
The bus weighs 23,000 pounds and is 28′ feet long by 8’6″ wide. It has a possible 20′ by 8′-6″ interior living space.
I had plan to do a Texas Tiny Homes bus conversion prototype, mobile model that would be on display with commissioned reps at State and County fairs, as well as all the Home and Garden Shows, RV Shows, Earth Day Festivals, Fort Worth Stock-show Rodeo, and Tiny Home events we continually receive invitations to set up a booth at. Multiple Public schools have also invited us to come and do presentations to their building trades and architectural departments and bring a Texas Tiny Homes model on a trailer, but we do not have a tiny home on trailer at this time, which hasn’t been the kind of product I was interested in providing up until this year. However, it’s a stout tank, and too stiff for my taste for my wanting to travel and live in it while out on the road, so I am going to at least double my money by detailing fixing the issues. I gave less than what motor alone is worth.
I was planning to use it to tour some of the 45 US states our plan customers have built or that are currently building the plans they purchase from Texas Tiny Homes, film each tour for our own Youtube TV Show episodes. The bus will be a mobile bill board for our brand, with logo’s, contact info, web address.
I paid cash for the bus, but it will take from $15,000 up to $30,000 (with solar and body wrap package) to cover the conversion expenses, which includes painting the exterior, a state requirement if it’s to be used as an RV, or for personal use.
I may also market it as a Texas Tiny Homes build job custom bus conversion and rent a warehouse to begin doing them, and some spec versions. Bus conversations are talking off along side the tiny homes on trailers. There is an abundant supply of used bus’ all over the country. We shall see!!
