I'm pretty happy with the bus, however there are some undisclosed issues....like the fancy auto leveling air ride doesn't exactly work. She leans to the front right all the time...it's not bad, but not exactly right. There is a manual adjustment for the gizmo that auto-levels i'll crawl under there adn figure it out when i get home. And the front air doors close really really slow and won't stay closed at speed. Ended up tying them shut with a tie down strap, hope we don't get trapped in here!
The biggest issue i have is that he lied in the ebay add stating the bus' top speed is 80-85 mph. You can't even consider it a mistake or miscommunication.
On flat ground the bus won't do 57 mph indicated by the spedo or my gps. That's a significant difference. I would not have purchased this bus if I knew it had a top speed of 55 mph. Down the mountain it'll go 65, but i wouldn't dare spin the motor faster than that. No tach, but she's a screemin' above 60mph....a top speed you can only obtain while going down a significant grade. I'm very unhappy about this
other than that, the bus seems excellent. She'll make a great jacuzzi/limo bus.
Lots of little things to fix, still have at least one marker light out, the left turn signal is very dim, ect ect.
insurance is $250/year so that's not bad.
Are we there yet??
stopped and bought a stereo because the bus doen't have a radio, and she's gonna need one anyhow. Speakers dont' sound good at all without an enclosure, so we made one out of the cardboard speaker box.
We just crossed into new mexico a few miles back. only 1,839 miles to go!
