school busses in general like some weight on the rear axle.. when i had my red bus loaded down with metal shelving, tools, and equipment headed to florida.. the ride quality was the best it ever was.. it of course required more downshifting on downgrades and went slower uphill. but sure didnt boiunce around like it normally does..

Mayville, Holly cow, youre way up there. Was thinking about slipping over to take a look at you rig but youre darn near to Devils lake. If you ever get down by Charles City Iowa, Give me a buzz I live close by, we'll go scrounging for a tractor.

Pretty Cool, now I notice Olivers everywhere I go. Saw an old dealership south of Forest City, IA, still in business!
