Thank you very much I really appreciate it. I can't wait to get on the road with it.
It's a great feeling to get close to the point of getting out on the road and enjoying all your hard work!
Yes, yes it is. The only thing holding us back now is funding. I invested most the available cash I had into the conversion so now we are just sitting here waiting to build the reserves back up so we can go. Also I still need to do maintenance on the bus before hitting the road which requires more funding
Well I spent the first weekend in our bus. It wasn't what I had planned but kind of fun non the less. A buddy of mine blew the motor in is truck and used one of our friends shops to change out the motor. Of course he wrangled me into helping him. Anyway I drove the bus about 20 miles to the shop and we camped out in it all weekend so we could work on the truck and then just crash. Very comfy. My son Austin even made us bacon, eggs and toast Saturday morning in the bus. It was a nice little test run before our big trip in a week or two.
Well, I rolled the bus over a scale today... I have it registered as a motor home in WI with GVW 20,000. Drum Roll..... Weight without any passengers - 17,860! I will be pushing 20,000 fully loaded with full holding tanks and a full tank of fuel
As stupid as many things are in California, motorhomes don't need a weight certificate and registration doesn't require paying fees on a declared weight. I think my reg is about $150 per year. I know it's not as cheap as some states but its cheap enough. My pickup was about $600 per year.
