Hi guys this is my 2nd post

Well after reading a lot of forums within Skokie.net and doing some outside research online I decided to pull the trigger on (Big Bitch) shes a 1993 MCI 102C3. She is currently parked in NY due to northeastern cold conditions and weather. However as soon as its gets a tad bit warmer I will be able to (a) get her a parking slip at a local storage yard near my house and (b) dissect the poor construction that was done to her prior to me. (C) start converting her to be a full time live in RV. Wish me luck lol Im gonna need it. JK

Good luck with that Big Bitch.

Make sure the suspension is up-to snuff before dumping large cash inside.

Where'd you get this breakdown from?
Also where in CT are you? I'm in Canton. Just bought an MCI 102 C3 myself -- 1990. First bus, first conversion.
