Brand new to skoolie's - inquiry
Hello all Skoolie.net members,
I have been viewing this great site for a while now and I think I've gathered enough courage to post.
Currently I'm the president of the Arizona State Ultimate Frisbee team and we were looking into converting a bus for our travels.
I've gathered this short list of information regarding what to look for and what not to look for, if this offends anyone's personal preferences I apologize in advance:
Engines to look for - International (DT466, DT360)
Avoid GM, Ford derived diesels (not enough power)
Avoid Carpenter Chassis due to improper welds
Lower rear end ratio means greater top speeds
Air brakes instead of hydraulic
I'm am very green to school buses in general, so if anyone has any advice on where to start, what to look for, and some reliable sources for school buses for purchase it would greatly be appreciated.
Thank you very much,
