BMM70047 New Skoolie

I just Purchased My First Skoolie. It's a 1973 BlueBird All American Flat Nose Front Engine.Ford Gasoline Engine, Alison Transmission, Air Brakes, Air Ride Suspension 74,517 Original Miles on Bus. I Drove it Home Yesterday (400 Miles) Its in Bad Shape but Rode werthy. It was a Church Bus. I Also have a 1994 Coachman Camper I purchased for Donner Parts. My Plan is to Make a Toy Hauler/RV Conversion. I will Post Some Pictures when I get a Chance.

Thanks,
Kevin

The thing about having a gasoline engine is conversions kits are available for natural gas. Diesel is back up to 3.00 a gallon or higher in some parts of the country.
