Re: First timer Road tripping project!!!
I didn't buy my bus from Sonny Merriman, but I get parts from them (chassis stuff). I work for a truck dealer so I can get Caterpillar (or Cummins for that matter) directly from Cat at dealer cost. Much of the chassis stuff I can get directly from Freightliner too since they own Thomas Bus... I just can't look stuff up on it. I have had the people at the local Sonny Merriman in Chesapeake look up the parts I need and provide me with part numbers, and then I get into our own Freightliner system and order the parts directly. I've only needed a couple of fairly minor things though, at least so far. I bought my bus via publicsurplus.com and it came from the City of Harrisonburg Va, looked remarkably like the one pictured above...
