Original Mount Rainier National Park Tour Bus
RARE Scenic Roof Sightseer Windows
Very well documented history. Recorded in the Flxible VIN history, this is 1 of only 2 Mt Rainier National Park tour busses and the other is unknown if it still exists. As seen in the photos, there is an original park brochure and 3 post cards displaying the bus. The destination scroll includes "Seattle, Tacoma, Sunrise (Lodge), Paradise (Lodge), Special and Rainier Nat’l Park."
Converted to an RV - Motorhome in 1972. Original blueprints for the conversion are included.
Caterpillar 1150 Diesel
4 Speed manual with 2 speed rear end.
Both motor and trans have recently been gone through with various updates & repairs. **Over $10,000 in mechanical work completed by specialized Diesel mechanic. This beauty is now ready to travel across the country!!**
All new batteries.
All new wheels and tires. (6)
Onan generator serviced and runs well. However last trip, a gas leak began at one of the valves. Minor repair needed, easy access.
Gas stove works great.
Refrigerator and freezer work great.
Water, and shower unknown as I never tried them, water pump activates...
Toilet flushes, flush valve sticks. (this is the reason I haven't run the water further)
Fresh water and black water holding tanks seem to be complete and holding residual water with no leaks.
Headlights / taillights work.
Marker lights (roof corners) currently disconnected.
Front and rear electric heaters work.
Many outlets not working.
Windshield wipers work - need new blades.
Roof a/c works
Air horns work great and sound like a train!
New 30 amp power cord wired in, powers the coach great.
There are additional pieces of glass which I believe are two additional scenic windows plus others. There are also the rest of the original scenic window shades. Included are various additional rare interior and exterior trim pieces etc.
Registration / documented owner history following Mt Rainier National Park, dated back to 1972 (or earlier). Many original owners manuals and diagrams plus handwritten driver logs.
The remaining roof scenic windows are one of the most rare and unique things about this bus and one of my favorite features!
Reason for selling: We are a larger family with 5 children and need a motorhome large enough for traveling. We have determined it just is not realistic to make this work for us.
I really wish Mt Rainier National Park could purchase the bus and restore, however unfortunately they recently made a large investment preventing them from being able to.
Ideal candidate for a motorhome, tour bus, tiny home, mobile espresso, Farm to Table dining, Business Advertising and so many other uses. This Bus is a showpiece like nothing else. She is ready for someone to take her to the next level and share with the public. Also a great candidate for TV and Movie Production. Similar to the Flxible as seen in the movie "RV" with Robin Williams.
When comparing to "Tiny Home" options for private living, guest home, VRBO, Airbnb etc, buying & completing this bus will cost the same. The difference... 1. This will appreciate/increase in value versus Tiny Homes depreciate like normal RV's. 2. Uniqueness - nothing out there like this. So rare to see and appreciated by people globally. 3. Mobility - you are able to quickly/easily move it as it is under her own power without the need for towing. 4. Multi-use and demand. The combination of uses as a home, guest home or RV for traveling, this will always have a demand. Also ideal for Classic Car Shows, including using this to tow a custom car with.
Currently stored indoor, RV Garage. Located in Woodinville WA.
The value is estimated to be $70k+/- though is difficult to compare to due to the scenic windows, documented history and overall condition.
Current price: $54,900. May consider trades including autos or Real Estate.
