I was overjoyed to learn my bus would do 85mph on cruise control with no ill effects for a full tank. Not so overjoyed at the 7mpg.

Woh. I'd like to see a bus go that fast (my bus).

My buses are both capable of 80+

95% of school buses aren't, but that doesn't mean they don't build em that way on request.

Well- one was electronically limited to 50 but Chris reset that to 80.
If you've got a computer controlled IC its easy.

I love being comfortable with everything I really need, including food, workspace, stove, fridge, bathroom, air conditioning, and a comfy bed. Itís an amazing place to avoid all distractions and clear the mind. Thatís not why I made it, but spending time by myself in it is a little piece of heaven!

I do not consider myself to be very artistic, yet I love the fact that my stripped out bus is a blank canvas, waiting for me to express myself

Thanks for sharing.

One of the reasons I'm all about getting a bus is the ability to make it my own, just mine, all mine.
