Mid life crisis. Instead of getting a sports car, I went with the bus
Hey! That's not an RV, that's a school bus.
Well thank you for noticing, Captain Obvious

And believe it or not...a bus is WAY cheaper for an old guy than a 19 year old girl friend.

But not as much heart stopping excitement.

Always wanted a toy hauler bus from the first time I saw one. When I started going to the drag strips back in the mid 60s there were a few buses converted to car haulers. In the 70s they were as plentiful as today's motorhomes pulling enclosed trailers but as the years went by I started to see less and less of them. Last year at Atlantic Canada's biggest event of the year I counted only 3 buses in 200+ pit spaces.

This is a big step up for me from a a 22 year old truck, an even older open car trailer, staying in motel$ and eating in restaurant$. This way I can pack food from home, sleep in the camper part and even have a place to store the race car all winter. Right now I'm really getting impatient waiting for decent weather so I can get at it. All that needs work is the exterior and the camper part because the rest of the bus is almost totally rebuilt or new(brakes, exhaust, suspension, fluid lines, tires, etc) You got to love taking over an abandoned project when all the expensive stuff is already done...

December 2014, my buddy was telling me of his idea to convert a bus to an RV. I laughed at him and tried to beat down every idea, but in the end I couldn't find a reason not to do it.

- an affordable and super strong RV for retirement
- living space if times get tough
- living space when developing property in the boonies
- something to take to Wasteland Weekend
- another hobby
- develop some crafting skills

like my my intro thread, im here for the hauling. the only motorhomes that can handle the amount of payload i have is a diesel class A, and I am sure everyone here knows how costly those are. only need about 20 odd feet of living space, so the big class A's are also way oversized for what i need.
