Nice setup. Lots of space!
How well does that camper follow the bus?
Have you had any issues finding gas stations that can handle that length combination?

It tows great and Not any real issues on gas stations you just need to watch close..

Just take you bus to a welder and have him make a hitch. I made my own not really that hard.

I really like it so far, I am thinking about going with 19.5 tires and wheels for the towing aspect, I will keep you posted.
Also any one out there have a tag axle on there bus? post up some pics of it if you can... I have a idea
