Great tutorial - but won't the steel drums rust from the inside out due to holding water?

Maybe, After a period of time!
But how long do you plan on keeping this bus?

Haven't heard from you in a while, hope all is going good with the bus. We have another Mountgomery county school bus on here. "Smells Like Teen Spirit: Conversion of 1999 Thomas MVP"

Unfortunately (for my bus) I took up surfing and can't stop. So I've been working a little and not updating. But I should be back at it now. I need this to go smooth then I can surf more and in other places. Home is where you drive it.

Re: Credit Score 1000 Bus

we carry a step stool if we need to "add" a step

I like being able to swing my front end over curbs etc, most normal RV's can't do that...or they rip off the steps, that happens alot

Re: Credit Score 1000 Bus

Durango being 13 and having arthritis in his rear hips is having trouble getting up the steps. I will have to build a ramp and find a place to store it. I thought about adding an extra step, but the buses steps are too step for him.
