Thanks. I forgot to mention, she actually said she thought she was doing 75MPH, but according to the car I was following her in, it was actually going about 5mph slower than the bus said, so it was 70.

And oops about the double post. After posting, it had disappeared and so I tried again.

Thanks. Yes, the plan is to be in it full time. We had it sink into the ground and we got it out a couple days ago (there's another thread about that). After we repair the yard today, we'll run some extension cords out to the bus and work on it. We're also considering either a generator or getting a basic solar system to work on it untethered.

Yep, looks like you got one of the TCs with the bigger windows - Bluebird offered 2 different window heights on the TC & All American up until the late 2000s.

Surprised it doesn't have interior luggage racks as well....usually buses with understorage also have the racks but not always.

Hmm, I've never heard of a school bus with interior luggage racks before.

Activity buses. Often they have highway gearing, too.

GSA buses too. Although, they're usually considered "activity" buses. Best one I ever drove was a Thomas RE up to Ft Drum from Atlantic City. Had air ride for the driver...so comfortable.

I wonder how many "Fort Drums" there are. We have one in south FL.
