Hello all! First i'd like to compliment EVERY single one of you for your builds, i have scoured the forums and looked into each and every one of the builds that are still active/have pictures. This is a wonderful community that i hope to be able to contribute to very soon.
I currently do NOT have a bus, though i am searching and searching and searching constantly (ideally i want one dressed out, and weekender ready by March/April) I know i want a turbo diesel, ideally i'd like a dog nose with the Cummins 5.9, DT 360, or a DT 466. I guess i couldn't/wouldn't complain with a T444e, but i would really prefer an inline 6.
First off a little about me, im in my early 30's though still act and feel like im 20 occasionally. I have a passion for motorcycles and motor sports of all kinds. I used to race sport bikes, i do race dirt bikes (have an 09 Husky TE510), currently have a fiance and a 100 lb pooch named Zeus. We love camping and the outdoors and a toyhauling bus fits the bill for what we want/need. I ride dirtbikes so getting one of those in a bus is not a problem, now Kim... She likes quads (to each their own) I was searching for a handicap bus in hopes that the door would be wide enough for her quad (Honda trx 700xx) Unfortunately everything i have found says the doors aren't wide enough to fit a quad through... No big deal, i can weld (just dont have my own welder yet), and i was wondering if anyone else has fabbed up a new rear door/entry on their bus? I have found a few buses that have done this and for our application, it would be ideal... I just wonder how much fabbing it would take to get these doors operational? It doesn't seem like much, but i dont have a bus yet to hack into and get to work. Just wondering if anyone else has widened their doors and/or have an advice on doing so? Thank you all for reading and for your thoughts/comments.
