Hello, they call me Bro

Hi everyone,

I'm 29 year old student studying aircraft maintenance and I've dabbled in welding, fabrication, and home renovations in my young adult life.

I somehow stumbled across an article online about bus conversions and fell in love with the idea. I've been perusing these forums for a while now, and the amount of information available from all of you brilliant minds is astonishing. Since my profile title or rank shows that I'm scared to post, I thought I'd change that ;)

I'll be posting more once I find and purchase a bus, but until then, this forum is a great resource and I need to thank you all in advance for this wealth of knowledge.

Your experience in AMT will serve you well as you convert a bus into the home on wheels that you want.

Contact me if you need help in finding the right bus for you.

Good luck and happy trails.

I'm sure it'll come in handy.

I've actually got my eye on this

Autobus THOMAS 1992 MVP semi-coach | autos et camions | Longueuil / Rive-Sud | Kijiji

I'll translate the pertinent information.
310,000km
5.9L Cummins
Automatic transmission
Air brakes
4 undercarriage storage compartments
Block heater and ?coolant heater?
Well maintained, runs and starts like a gem but will need a bit of work do to rust at certain spots.
2 Spare tires, heavy-duty hitch and electric brake controller for trailer
AND a backup camera system

Reason for selling: to buy a bigger bus.
Apparently it belongs to a non profit organisation that helps kids.
4900$ negotiable
