Awesome!

Where are you located?
I agree; for the price of a couple months rent we get a home. A sweet mobile home.

Thanks! I was originally looking for a rear engine flatnose........but after seeing a FE setup......felt it makes more sense........more room in bedrooom which will be located in back with a rear door(plan to build porch around bus)and the bathroom n water tanks will be over the rear axle.......so the F n R weight distribution........that leaves living room n kitchen towards front. Yes the FE has a driveshaft........but after looking underneath storage still wont be an issue on a 35' bus.
