Re: useful load of a Bus

I figured 2 people per seat at 200lbs ea and did the math. I am sure you could handle the bikes noted and the sleeping quarters. My opinion...

Re: useful load of a Bus

6 bikes and 6 people, you are WAY under max wt.

I have a 88 pass bus converted to a car hauler. the car actually goes up inside the bus. It sleeps 6(qeen size bed and 2 fold out couches). when done it will have a 100gal + fuel cap. generator, TV table chairs, 2 tool boxes, area for spare parts, fridge, hardwood floor, table some cabinet storage. plus food and all the stuff you need to keep occupied during a trip and down time at the track.

Heck I bet you could even take a leaf or 2 out of the springs and still be just fine.
