That's the way I was thinking "out in the boonies" The day I bought our bus, I took it "four wheeling" since it takes about five minutes to be off road from town. It did pretty well concidering, it's a 40' long bus. After dragging the rear, I decided 10' must come off the rear. I would go with a regular trailer but I would at least have to do an axle/spring swap for ground clearence. I think I would have around $3500.00 to $4000.00 in a trailer to make it the way I want. Or, 1 to 2 thousand for another buss. (with a lot more labor in it) Time vs. money, Just a matter of what I have more of at the moment. Would also like to use a ball/pintle hitch.
I've heard busses would get stuck in wet grass. I do have a set of chains for the bus and plan on more aggressive tread for the rear diggers. Also a 15,000 lb. winch up front and rear. Anybody put winches on their busses? I'm talking on the front of the bus, not in the passenger seat.
I want it fairly off road capable and a trailer to match. Anyway, I will be dragg'in something behind me on occasion, just don't know what for now. It might be me at the end of a chain, with the little lady driv'in
Another brain fart. Is there any problems hooking up electric trailer brakes on a trailer with the bus having air brakes?
Sh**, I'm giving myself grief for future problems and hav'nt even got the bus on the road yet.
