Re: Church Bus

Are you planning..(or already have ) cut it down to 96 in?

and did you get all the fittings thru MCMaster Carr or did you find a place for better pricing?

My mirrors stick out to 108’’ so I cut the beams down to that but am weary about my upcoming title switch over from conversion to rv that they might bust me in the inspection. I got the key klamps at simplifiedbuildings.com….after a lot of research it seemed to be the cheapest but not by much

Re: Church Bus

I was told that max vehicle width was 96 inches, safety equipment (mirrors and such) didn't count.
Might want to check,that would suck to be probable cause to be pulled over and be OverSize

Re: Church Bus

96 is the max without restrictions. 102 is the max legal width but some states will restrict you on some roads. I wouldn't have your deck at 108 or you will be asking for trouble. The bus looks good. I thought you just started on it and I was getting mad...at myself for the slow pace.


This is California.
