hello everyone, me and my wife just purchased our second bus, and we are extremely excited with the deal that we got, it is 1989 Thomas 84 passenger, we purchased it for only $1025 thru an auction.



it will be a long process, but we are planning on a roof raise. we will be living it full time when it is finished.
