Re: If I could do it all again...

girlfriend said 6 more inches of bathroom width would be better, otherwise we wouldn't change much. Might have got a newer one, lighter too, this thing is a monster and very heavy, 23,000 w/o passengers or gear, weighed in at 20,000 before conversion (sans seats). sportyrick

Re: If I could do it all again...

I keep changing little things here and there, but for the most part, I like the way everything turned out and would'nt change anything. I think every bus body has it's pluses and minuses and you work around what you have to work around.

Re: If I could do it all again...

I would NOT buy a front-engine-flat-nose again. Engine access is horrible. I'm having trouble with the throttle and other linkages on the left side of the engine, and it is almost impossible to work on it.

I bought Millicent in order to have a "toy hauler" tail gate, but now I would buy a conventional, or a shorter pusher, and use a longer trailer. (65 feet overall maximum allowed.)

We also need more bunks, what with friends constantly joining on our trips, so the half-living-space/half-cargo-space idea is not successful.
