Re: Starting My Conversion Journey

LOL!!!...No, I have NOT the first clue. I actually stumbled across this bus at a time when the Church had just purchased a new MCI for their youth group. The Pastor (I don't even go to church there) decided he wanted me to bless me with this bus for $2500. I told him about my music project, and he really liked the idea, so he decided to sell it to me for $2500. I had no idea what it was worth...I just wanted one -

The paint is in great shape too, and I really like the deep metallic blue. The chrome hub caps are a huge plus to the over all look.

Thanks again for the compliment!

75-80 would be awesome...... just curious what the drive ratio is..

good luck!
I apologize, I have yet to get under the bus in that area to check out the ratio for you. I am still stunned and amazed by how this bus wants to fly instead of drive!

You also have to worry about condensation under the bottom mattress if you try to put it directly on the floor.
I have been doing a ton of research toward rigging the interior, and build out. Have been seriously thinking about your comment about triple bunks possibly being a bit ambitious. I have found a local mattress manufacturer who says he can make me super support 4" mattresses any size I want on demand. I laid down on a sample and it was impressively comfortable. I may have to reconsider my bunk designs to accommodate as many musicians and crew as i need to. I have also been sketching up designs for building my own space saving sleeper sofas up front too. Benn finding tons of creative ways to bring it all together. Once I begin the buy/build phase I will post regular photos, and share vendor details.
