That is 1x1 square tubing 11 gauge. Do not use 16 gauge. And the bolts are structural grade all thread that was through bolted into the cab of the bus through the A pillar steel and then welded so they would not come off...ever.

We are CURRENTLY in Socorro, New Mexico! We are moving to Roswell, NM in a couple of weeks (week before Turkey Day). We are working our way back EAST. It might take a few years!

We USED to live in .....
FL: Ft. Pierce, Pt St Lucie, Stuart
NC: Franklin, Otto
SC: West Union, Seneca, Westminster (area around Clemson University)
TN: Hixson (Chattanooga), Tiftonia (Chattanooga), Whitwell, Elizabethton
GA: Cordele
TX: Corpus Christ (Flour Bluff)
MI: Galien (David's hometown.... I've never been there... I'm originally from Ft Pierce... 7th generation FL native)

We get around. Even before we started full-timing. Our response to the inevitable "where are you from?" is "WHEN?" Amazing how many folks say "where's that?"
