Re: skoolie days

made it back from our trip, it was short one but a blast did 3740 kms the bus ran like a champ no problems, DW will post road pics heres some of our Honda jazz on mounted on the back, the rack is reinforced with 1/4 steel it wasn't going to break

this is with a bbq cover on it, the bike was strapped on, all was well never moved, I kept an eye on it with the rear view camera

Re: skoolie days

I repainted the top of the bus around the lights white, I think it looks better then the black

on the way home, a view of lake superior, we too hwy 17 north shore, up and sown the hills great scenery!

and then the weather changed

about 3 hours of rain, poor visibility. we just putted along, tried the heated mirrors and the worked dried up the rain and fog on them.
And boy is it real nice to have your own bathroom after everyone have a bladder busting slushy!!

have a few more pics ill post later

Re: skoolie days

And, that white roof will make a noticeable difference in interior heat as well. Nice pics of the scenery!
