If you fill out your user profile we could probably give you more precise answers.

There is a nice looking one on Ebby Island by the gun club. It's a 40' tandem with a 671T. The gent is using it for storage and is willing to sell.

I was told that it came from Whidbey School district. I bet Cowlitz could tell you more about it.

The one I mentioned is a good looking bus with one of the more desirable engines.

The Cummins 220 I becoming difficult to find parts for. The Detriot 671 that is in this bus still has good parts availability and they are a very simple engine compared to the modern four strokes.

Good luck with your quest.

This one is down the road a bit. It has been gutted but no conversion work has been done.

I did a quick Google search and found a bunch of Crowns. But..... The one on Ebby island is a sweet looking rig.

Thank you for your assistance, From all the valuable resources here, which is the best drive line combo for these? I plan on transposing Airstream innards, where possible to convert hopefully to keep weight to a minimum. I have heard you get about as good fuel mileage, empty or loaded, any input there? I am in a major life change at the moment, and attempting to apply rationale to my situation. I am considering it as a domicile, any thought's there? What are your experiences? Does anyone actually live in one of these year round? I have many questions...
I will spread them out, and find the right discussion groups to follow.
Please excuse my lack of experience on forum etiquette.

Thanks Jay.
