our main thing will be, we want to take the Hovercraft along and stay at some of the parks and RV resorts on the water. wold be so cool to set up camp and go out on the Hovercraft from the same place. a lot of hotels don't have parking for trailers. also the last time we went, we spent the night in key largo, that was a night mare. was a latino trailer park right next door, did not get a bit of sleep. people fighting and cops there several times in one night. in key west stayed at the sheriton and had a family with kids in the room above us. sounded like a pack of elephants all the way till 3:00 a.m.
After that my lady and I said no thanks, time to get another RV.
that said we got a really good deal on this bus. but it does have high miles. it was a church day care bus, so very well maintained. but has over 250,000 on it. got it for $3,500 and the guy even threw in 4 new tires. as with all buses, it has a few issues to work out. but I am good at working on stuff, so just a matter of time. I will post progress pics as i go along.
todays task is fix the line to the lift arm on the wheel chair lift, it poped off. was just a cheap plastic line that was help on with a zip tie. line is hard and stiff from age, so going to have to change that around some how. as it is, can't rise the lift to close the doors.
