Yeah, my 1100 doesn't get that kind of mileage. Those little guys are all kinds of fun and not so damn heavy.

And it has the wheelchair lift in the middle of the bus, which makes for a weird floorplan.

when the lift is pulled out its just flat bus floor inside.. and you could even take out that door... frame up part of the way and then you have a nice big opening for an RV window...

Ive seen all of those in person too... they are nice lookin busses.. i didnt drive any of them but one of them was running the other day when I picked my bus up and it sounded good. I think someone was test driving it..

they said short busses are popular.. i figured with everyone building RV;s and tinyhomes that short busses would be hard to sell.. but they said shortbusses sell quicker than long ones usually..

A lot of people are afraid of the parking issues, at home and on the road. I tried an older 40 footer and I don't have any complaints except about in town driving. I think a lot of people get a shorty and then find they need more room to do what they want to do in there.

Ya i am def happy with mine, didn't want to go to long so that we would be able to fit in more state parks and not have to worry about space.

Just looked through their inventory and all of the ones they have with a Cummins engine have the AT545 tranny, which everyone on here warns against getting. Anyone know why a majority of these Cummins powered busses tend to have this model tranny?
