We love your bus too! Seems warm and inviting, especially with the "headliner" treatment.

That's a nice bus. This was the second thread I got through since joining, and I enjoyed every page of it. Also gave me many ideas for my own future project too, gracias.

I just bout a 1974 crown supercoach a few months ago, and love what you've done with yours. Looks wonderful! Thank you, Chris

I am lurking until I officially join the community and buy my bus. I only write to say this conversion is hands down amazing. I've spent two hours drooling over this entire conversion when I should have been cleaning the house. I second, third, fourth, and fifth what everyone has echoed. Amazing work...I am envious to the point where I will probably design my future skoolie just like yours.

Recently returned from a road trip with BC touring the southwest...Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Lake Powell. BC ran just fine except for blowing her left front tire about 20 miles west of the lake out in the middle of nowhere. She got a ride on a big Landol, but everything else ok!

The flat blew on US 89, a two lane road, and in a very dangerous location, so she had to be towed to a spot where the tire could be changed.

The engine is a Detroit 671 now with 331,000 miles on it. Only used 6 quarts of oil on a trip that took me nearly 1700 miles...not bad for an old one

I am enjoying the fruits of many years of labor on this bus

Here is BC in Zion National Park



Bryce Canyon



And her flat and piggy back





And spectacular Lake Powell

Nice pictures, glad you had a good trip, other then the tire. Bet your glad you had a road side assistance for that tow call.
