my little red one has the 190 HP (most common) 444E and has plenty of power on the highway at 65... its not a DT-466 but for a short bus it works great.. in a fiull sized bus it would be a Dog...

im working with IHC to see if i can get mine re-rated to 210HP.. its just a computer program change.

I don't care what the item is, why do they do that??? Just make the first bid at your reserve and be done with it. Then you aren't wasting your time or my time. I just don't get it.

Not too much planned, other than using it as a daily driver. We only have one car right now. Fixed up and sold a Focus last year, bought and resold a Vic, but I've been wanting to get a nice short bus to use as a work truck/van.
Will be perfect for towing our huge landscaping trailer.
I'm gona do a quick repaint, pull a couple of seats out, and pretty much use it as is. I'm gonna build a closet-sized restroom so I can take a poop during the work day without going to convenience stores. And I'll put a Fantastic vent on top with a cover, which I already have NIB.
REALLY looking forward to getting my daily driver home!

I GOTTA say, Chris- you've inspired much of my thinking when it comes to all this.
What kind of real world mileage do you get with Redbyrd? Not interstate, just regular use.

I think I'll keep my unicorn killer. Jetta wagon. I don't have to tow landscaping trailers but I'm also getting 42+ miles per gallon. Now if I can get the same out of a 90 pax bus, I'll 5hit kittens.

7-9 MPG should be very easy to get.

If you don't do much idling or big hills you should have no problem with the upper number.

Big loads, big hills, and lots of idling and you will be looking at the lower numbers.
