Re: New member Bus/Toy Hauler build

Hi ,

It's really exciting when the seats come out . Thats when you can the potencial for making it into a home away from home .

We want to sell ours because we need the money, but then again we really like the bus . I called for insurence on it yesterday [ GMAC ] and it cost $279 for 6 mom.s . Same as before we took off tag and insurence last year .

We may not sell it . I wish I could post pictures but my box won't allow for it .

Re: New member Bus/Toy Hauler build

Lookin' good Frank! I do some dirt dike riding {and race every once in a while!} too

Personally, I would change only one thing you have going. I would uncover the 1st passenger side window to give better viewing.

Some buddies and I lease 700 acres to ride bikes on, and there is one intersection on the way there where the roads meet at a diagonal. Every time I go through there I practically have to "turn right" to see, yet I am turning left. The lack of visibility crops up just about any time intersections arent square, like parking lots and such. Wish I had a window to uncover!

DITTO... you need at least some living area glass to get rid of the tunnel feel inside! Plus just to help with driving it....

Ah...PHEW...just making sure! Was thinking you were gonna have to install flat screens on the walls with cameras outside showing the great outdoors to mimic windows!
