Here for the Hauling

Hi, My name is Keith, I am a USMC Vet and I am trying to plan my escape from the freezing north In a motorhome

What brought me here is the fact Class C motorhomes simply dont have the towing capacity i need. I have a car, A motorcycle, and plan to get another motorcycle before i leave. other heavy stuff i have is about 4000 rounds of ammo, and a decent amount of tools. I have a payload of about 4500-5000 lbs.

So that takes me to a Bus. A Sub 30ft or roughly 40 passenger class D school bus fits the bill perfectly. many have rear wheelchair lift, that i could easily convert into a motorcycle lift (mine are sub 400lbs) and the rear section into a "mini garage" and use the front space for the living quarters. i have a rough floor plan in mind but wont get too into it until i have a bus.

Thanks for having me
Keith

Those 4000 rounds are going to be awfully heavy, but since you're now one of the Skoolie gang you can drop them off at my place.

actually i realized that is an underestimate.

4,000 5.45 x 39
1,700 7.62 x 54r
2,000 7.62 x 39

so 7,700 is the actual count... when your ammo is still in the crate you kinda forget you have it...lol

Child's play. What do you shoot them out of, toilet paper rolls?

I also really like your attitude, OP.

Yep, it is.



My favorite is the m39 I snagged for $100.

chinese T53. its a sewer pipe but she shoots straight and the action is smooth

the Hex is a Finish Sky M39. they are essentially M91's but built way better by the fins using the hex M91 receiver.
