Re: adding rear deck

thats a good point about scraping the rear deck, as it is now I find it eazy enough to hit the tail pipe backing out of my drive way. I have been rethinking this deck, at first I wanted to put the generator on It, but Im going to mount it buy the battery box. I would still like to put a small deck, just to carry fire wood, maybe gas, but it will have to be 18 to 20 inch wide, Ill pounder this for the winter, we had a bit of snow today burrrr its coming!!

Second vote for building with big steel, better to be overbuilt than underbuilt.

I've had the idea of adding a rear deck also, however I was considering the flatbed off a pickup. cut it in half and find something close to same gauge as bus frame. That way you have a receiver hitch at the back
