Best of luck on the clubhouse/workshop! Sounds like fun.
Nope. It's a manual also. Ton of fun to drive too. I have a new respect for truckers now that I took this gorgeous 17 ton hunk of metal on the highway.

The dog-leg shifter took me for a spin. Twice when I was going on autopilot when we first got it I put her in 'R' at a stop signs. It's a learning experience.

I doubt your bus weighs that much. Knock off at least 5 tons.

Update time! This weekend we went out camping in the Catskills. Upon doing the research we decided to tackle the interior ceiling. In doing research, and talking to the 'paint guy' at the Home Depot, we decided on a metal etching primer and a matte all-weather paint because of the condensation that collects on the ceiling in the morning. All in all the goal was to get a soft, light scattering ceiling so that when the time came to install the mood lights we could get good lighting throughout.
