I just wanted to chime in and say that I love your bus. I am looking for one pretty much exactly like it body-wise. Even down to the side door placement. I heard the engine in (most?) TC2000's is not good for a bus - more of a pickup truck. The Cummins 5.9L I believe. I'm looking at Thomas' Saf-T-Liner, and the All American as alternatives (though I don't think they come as short?).
May I ask where you got your bus, and how much you paid for it? How many miles are on it ?
And, I'd love to see an update of where you're at with it now!
Enjoy your Skoolie
