The big day...

Well tomorrow my wife and I will be driving to Salem OR to pick up our bus!
We don't have firm plans for it yet but the ideas have been flying around hot and heavy. So far we are thinking roof raise, toy hauler, motor home.

I have an old falling apart motor home to rob parts off of. Water tanks, stove with oven, roof a/c, ect... Not going to use the fridge. Going the small chest freezer turned into fridge route.

The bus is a 1993 International Genesis with the DT466 and MT643 Allison.
Just bought it last Friday on Public Surplus. This week has gone by really slow waiting to go pick it up! Went and got insurance and a trip permit to get it home.

Trip report and pictures when we get it. 😎😎😎

Well it was a long day 600 miles, 300 of it in the bus. 300 miles took just over one quarter tank of fuel. I don't have a clue how big the tank is though!

Will try pictures here....

A little too tight to get by the trailer! Will move stuff around tomorrow.
Motor home is going to be a donor.

The bus did do 70mph on the freeway but I did not like the sound of it at that speed. The sweet spot seemed to be about 2400rpm @ 62mph. Sucker purred along nice at that speed or slower.
