The build is titled Millicent...(and something about a two foot roof raise and ramp) by Elliot Naess


Thanks Pamela. Funny story, I just read through that entire thread earlier this week. Very entertaining and very informative. I need to go back and see how much room there was below the frame rails.

lately I've really been digging the handicapped models with the rear side-entry. I don't need the lift, but the side door would really come in handy for loading the bikes.

Something like this would be ideal, except for the price tag.

Boy that's in the nose bleed section for price. I'd say keep on looking. You should
check publicsurplus.com and governmentdeals.com there seems to be some fresh
buses coming up for sale recently. For the miles on the bus your looking at it
looks like it's been rode hard and put away wet. Also check with cowlitz and see
what he's got for sale.

yeah, i'm not gonig to get it, but I love the combo of the front engine, dt466, 7 speed manual trans, and rear air suspension. But I agree, that's a spendy unit.

I didn't know cowlitz was a dealer, I'll get in touch with him, thanks.

Try to find one of those special transport buses with a rear wheelchair lift and the normal floor height. That way you'd have a large space in the back without the need to cut into the rear emergency exit area to create a garage entrance.
