Wouldn't be very many campgrounds that would let that it.

I'm surprised its only got a series 50 in it. Why no 60?

The rear axle steers, so it follows the rear of the bus.

I really doubt that, it has duals on both rear axles. Since it is basically a short truck with a trailer it wouldn't be all that hard to maneuver. Kind of like a car transporter, which is the same configuration. They can get around much tighter than a tractor with a 53ft trailer. They are after all city buses.

Biggest drawback that I've seen is the rear engine pushing it into a jackknife on any
slope with slick roads. Had several happen in Seattle last snow that we had. They fold
up and block the whole road. Apparently they will break parts if overly folded as well.

434,000 miles is like 2,000,000 in dog years.
