Is it a yurt? I looked into one years ago for our Prince Edward Island property. I worried about life expectancy of the materials. I do love the idea of a yurt though.

I would agree with CrazyCal your engine is most likely not a DT466.

Most of the TC2000's had Cummins engines and a few with Cat engines.

Most of the early ones had 12-valve 5.9L 6BT Cummins with later models getting the 24-valve 6.7L ISB.

The Cats would be 3116/3126 or C7.

The DT466 is too long and too tall to fit into your engine compartment without a lot of modification.

No its not a yurt but I almost bought a yurt before I bought my tipi. It was a kit house that was built back in 93 its got a foundation with basement and it is probably about 1500 sq feet, two bedroom, 1 and half bath. We have to get the inverter for the solar fixed so it will be about like living in the tipi.

sounds good I will try and find out more about it and get some pictures in the next week. I just went by with what the guy said and that was the only reason he said he bought it for the 466.

Do tell with details. You can pm me since yurt is off topic. Is it in virginia as well? Is it still available? One with a basement might be a good option as a fair weather place while traveling. Is there any regulation about what is parked on the property (the bus of course)?
