Hello everyone,

I happened across your site while doing a search for shorties and shuttle buses, since I've been suddenly bitten by the need. I don't have one yet but I'm carefully looking.
I'm the one with toys in the family and my husband might actually kill me over this one! (he said he would) You see, I never discuss, whatever I get, it just magically shows up in my driveway

I have a pickup truck for hauling my quad, but with a shuttle bus, I wonder if anyone on this forum has been able to fit a Polaris 400 or 500 quad through the handicap double doors? Possible a slight modification to pull it off?

Yep there are toy haulers on here.
Pretty common with the shuttles. I just prefer the rugged steel school buses.

There was one guy on here who hinged the back of his toy hauler shuttle bus as a ramp for his Cobra(?)...

I mainly need the height due to the dirt off-roads I'll be on, something like this 96 looks high enough... I want short, looks like the paint is pretty decent?

Pretty sweet. There's no "E" after the 466 badge on the hood... AWESOME.

I vote full size short bus.

Better of everything.

Black is the worst color to paint anything. Just too hot.

ahhh but the black is the perfect ready made base color for camo. I'd use tans, browns and greens over the black. I'm in the woods allot. The inside seemed decent size too.

That's why I bought this. Nice and short but can haul stuff.

I actually favor what you have, I'm usually alone so this size is really all I need, I only go on overnights (due to work) and its the perfect size for my gear and a place to throw an air mattress... and I can retrofit to handle all my audio, video and FLIR equipment. Plus its more cost effective than a bigger bus.

I'd go minimal and dry:
- Tint all windows
- Remove all rear seats
- Carpet the Floor
- Porta and a small table
- Add 2 small recliners seats
- Small quiet gen to handle lights and recharging equipment

I'm looking
