Pick a bus for your needs

Every person has a preference for a bus. There are no bad diesel engines. Mostly the folks who make engines, do not make buses. There are exceptions. After buys and playing with 40 ft buses, the 35 ft buses are better suited to my use as an RV bus. My favorite old bus is my Crown bus with a huge Cummins engine.
If you have a lot of choises, pick a bus with a turbo. Frank

Re: Motor selection

Great choice! You wont regret that one.
Mostly the T444E isnt talked about, because it isnt one of the more 'preferred' engines to get. Still, a 444 is a top 10 pick.

And in a choice of the DT360, T444E, DT408, DT530, or DT466, the T444E is still my 9th choice.
