Sorry...didn't realize the pictures were back when you realized that it wouldn't pull the toad. I thought you had just decided to see how far you could get before you parked it.

New to the bus world...but I just bought a '91 GMC 4 window short bus with the 350/400 trans. Going to do a camper for me and the wife....I'm familiar with one ton SBC trucks and I what they can do, and I had hoped I could use this bus as a camper, but still pull a U-Haul type trailer with a an old '55 chevy or ford behind it. I thought it would do it, but after reading your post, I'm confused. Why wouldn't your bus pull your load? And will my bus pull my load???? Thanks, Joe.

I rented a 10' uhaul (3/4 ton frame) with 5.7 a few weeks to pull a 3/4 ton 4x4 suburban and car hauler.... barely knew it was back there.... but, the uhaul was empty
