im totally about the 1000+ mile maiden voyages... if your bus makes it no issues then you know you have a great bus to convert and will likely give you good service as an RV... if you have a catastrophic fasilure at least it happened before you put time effort and money into a conversion..
also if you have the ability, get some basic tools... my first bus i broke down and was at the mercy of a truck-down service which seemed to be a tad less than fully competent.. I learned a half a day into my breakdown I couldve fixed it to limp along if I had simply had a socket set, a few screwdrivers and some wrenches... I had nothing and was in desolate empty georgia..
Luckily I was off the road and there was a hotel (witha bar and internet)...
so now I make sure I have at least a few basic tools.. theres often times alot you can do to limp somewhere or you can order a part to your hotel room and put it on..
when all else fails theres truckdiown.com
