Hello everyone!

Hey there! Glad to be apart of this community! I am currently still in the process for searching for a bus. Right now I am looking at a 1992 Ward bus. If anyone has any feedback/advice/warnings/ etc on Ward buses, I would greatly appreciate it!!!

Welcome to the site, bus it out!
ECCB had a 92 Ward that he did a roof raise on which he liked a lot.
I have a 93 Genesis which is basically the same thing and itís a great bus.
A DT466 with an Allison MT643 tranny is a good package

Thank you! I like the look to them alot. while researching I saw feedback about rusting more than usual, bowing, difficulty finding parts. wasnt sure how true/untrue that feedback was though. thoughts?
