You are going to have to get power to your spot to run an AC for the summer. You are going to roast inside your aluminum can!

We figured out why you thought Town & Country was on 380. T & C has a billboard right next to the "Outside Inn RV Park". Our park is on the South end of town (right off South Main... not South East Main)

yes that is a 97 5 speed ford ranger xlt. good for towing behind bus. Not to heavy, no special eqipment to tow(don't need a trans pump etc) and its a 4 cycl. so its very fuel efficient.


That would be cool if 10 of us bought a couple lots of lands together and made our own bus/skoolie subdivition

Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

Chadluc, we have some things in common. Your bus is a 74. My bus is a 73. I also have a Ford Ranger. It is a 2000 with only 54,000 miles. People say that I should get quite a few years out of it being that they are good trucks. It has the 3.0 six cylinder engine. It gets 22MPG on the highway and 17MPG around town. It is a five speed manual transmission.

I don't expect to be leaving where I am for a while. I do not have a tow hitch on my bus.

It will get a lot hotter where you are now than it did in Hollywood. Get ready. It will also get hot where I am. I DO have electricity here, though.

Here is a picture of the red, white, and blue.

Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

I hear the 6 cycl is kinda bad on gas compared to the 4 cyc. But my truck also dont have the power your truck with the 6 cyc will.yes i plan to get a swamp cooler. and a job that is air conditioned. I have family here , so if it gets to hot i will just go over to my aunts. But they both smoke and refuse to open a window ..and I can't breath over there for long.



I plan to stay as long as it takes to get my GED, Take college prep classes,finish painting the bus and Save Some money. I could be here for 2 or 3 years IDNK. but alot of job requirements ask for those at the min. In just want to better prepare myself for future jobs etc

if i can get by at night and morning with the swamp cooler and maybe just run the portable A/C on very hot days, or when the temp is extream...i need to get a job because cash flow is at a stop and i can't buy anything until io get a job. because i could go buy a swamp cooler today but if i dont have a job i wont have money for gas in the genset to run it

Rock on with the G.E.D. A college degree isn't too shabby either. Being bonafide with a advanced degree, a man of letters if you will, opens a lot of doors.

Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

Different world than my youth, for sure. I didn't know what my career was going to be until after I was doing it. You could walk out of high school with, or without, a degree and get a factory job, and start making some babies. Those factories are long gone. Whatever you do, be careful about student loans, they bite.
