Just signed up cuz the community seems great here - directed by my son. Exactly what i have been looking for. I'm ready- need a bus for me n my ACD
to travel around the US. A little tired of vacationing with setting and taking down a tent, bedding, food prep and reeking much. Its especially cumbersome to do if I plan on long term. First step is dimensions - seems like a 26' interior may work but not sure. I want to anticipate friends and relatives from time to time but I think it would suffice. But hello all.
