Is anyone interested in this? If not I'll just drive car to surplus places, much cheaper.

Not really bus parts places, quite a few RV surplus places.

Here's a link to a map of the ones I know about, it you're looking for something specific I may be able to point you in the right direction.

RV Surplus stores

Johnson's and Bontragers are probably best with good selection and prices. RV Parts Nation is expensive, she used to be one of the best, got rid of a lot of inventory and moved uptown, trying to be a Campers World.

RV wise im mainly just lookimng for some type of table I can riase / lower or take in and out easily as part of a dinette... my Bus as a whoile is staying more a bus.. so im looking for a lot more School bus parts.. but tables and dinettes certainly may be something i can find at a surplus store.. or just walk around and get ideas..

llast trip i went US-33 up to US-30 and across to ft wayne.. but not sure that was the best route... US-33 as far as i could go might be the best way.. I may take the bus next trip as I keep working on stuff and use small road trips as a test of things to see how it will handle when I get into my 1000+ milers...

once ProAir gets me a date on my A/C , heater pieces I'll know more when im going to pass through... probably a weekday thiough as the ProAir is not open on weekends..
