Re: The 72 foot 1994 bluebird/fleetwood motorhome
It was fun building the huge motor home and taking it out on trips. I am now very much considering cutting the body off the bus leave only the floor and putting the rv on the back of the bus. I would have a bus drivline ..which I need want..and i would still have the comfort of a professional conversion with out really the bus look.I'm sure it would look pretty dam ugly and chopped up but I'm a back yard mechanic not a professional cabinet maker. I would of course drop the axle in the trailer fork lift it on to the bus and to secure it by welding some big steel supports off the bus frame directly to the rv frame to secure it permanetly.
I have found bigger is not always better. It is almost impossible to go anywhere in a rig that size. You can't fit in about 90% of state parks is one proublem, You can't tow a car thats another proublem, It is impossible (almost) givin a few added inches to manuver, It is slow to tow takes for ever to get that rig to speed, To big to cool efficantly, to big to heat efficently, just to dam big in general.I would like to put the rv on the bus. I think that would be cool and pretty easy. I wouldn't ave to fool with pluming and all the other B.S associated with doing a bus conversion and still have a bus. I would like to leave about 10 foot of bus from the front cut the body off from there, from there and the rest the rv. Sheet metal the rv to the bus as if it were 1 unit and remove the slide out. It would be nice to put a firplace in the first 10 feet to heat the entire vehicle.
