WTB a LARGE door off of a bus.

Has anyone taken off a door where a lift might have been? I want something bigger than I have. I will get the dimensions and post them. If anybody has any other ideas, let me know. I can't imagine getting large stuff into the bus with the small side door or through the front.

I will say having a lift and the wheelchair lift itself sure makes getting stuff inside the bus. I guess that is one benifit of having a lift door up in the front and it was something I was looking for in a skoolie. Now I having nothing against a rear lift door and I do like them for transporting passengers but for rv use a front lift door works much better.

Now for getting large stuff inside your bus. If it don't fit through the front service door you might have to remove a windshield to get it in.

I just put stuff in through the back before I built the walls. When I get up to UTB on Monday I will look and see if the bus Tim is parting out has a side door on it. Would a rear door work too cause I know it has that of course. BTW....it's a TC2000 he's parting, not that it should make a difference.

That would be great, thanks. Side or front would work I think. As long as the back is not bent/sloped like the back of some buses. I can't go through the back because of the engine. I think my door is 26", way too small.

I haven't had any chance to go anywhere but school and work. Our manager's daughter just gave birth to his first grandson but had complications so the bossman is there, two guys have weddings this weekend, and the fourth guy broke his foot doing karate or some such thing and is having it bolted back together. There are five of us....However, I was promised that I could go up there tomorrow before work so that's the plan. I need to run up there for Olddog anyway.
