For Sale: Outside Found Bus, $64,500

It’s been a whirlwind few years for us at Outside Found. Almost exactly three years ago, we hopped on a plane out to California to buy our soon-to-be bus conversion from a couple we found on Craigslist. Six months later we were neck deep in construction, finishing up a few months later. We travelled all over the Western United States, exploring Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. We’ve documented the best of our experiences here on our blog, but the posts and photos we’ve shared can barely scratch the surface of the amazing adventures we’ve encountered on the road.

Now, we’re excited (and just a little bit sad) to announce that we will be moving on to a new chapter in our lives. One of the big objectives for the bus adventure was to find a community where we would be happy to put down some roots. Finding our perfect Eden proved to be a big challenge when every town that we visited had so much to offer! In the end, Montana has always had a place in our hearts and the city of Bozeman checks all of our boxes.

Today, we’re putting the bus up for sale and are excited to see it go to a new family who will keep it on the road for years to come.

The Details

This beautiful, open concept school bus conversion is the perfect combination of comfort, utility, character, and charm. Rugged tires, tons of clearance, massive water and propane tanks, plenty of solar power and a garage for your outdoor toys will help get you to your next adventure while the huge couch, spacious kitchen, built in heater, bathroom with toilet and shower, and unobstructed views will keep you cozy while you recover after. It’s hard to imagine a more comfortable home away from home!
