Hello from the All Most Heaven State

Hello everyone , my wife Regina and I ( Dwayne) are from West Virginia and on the hunt for our forever bus home. She inspired me to move forward in getting a bus and selling our home in 3 yrs. We started our search a few weeks ago on finding the bus right for us. After measuring our driveway we knew we weren't going to give up space if we had a place to put the bus during the convertion. We are definitely wanting a 40' pusher bus and very close to getting one and should know in a few days. It's a 2003 International Amtram RE Cummins engine 444E with a Allison Transmission. We are so excited about getting her home and starting our journey. Thanks and stay tuned for more

Where is the bus you are contemplating buying from? Hopefully not from the rusty north east.

While that may be true, eastern seaboard stuff deals with the salt air, almost as bad as road salt.
