New member and bus owner in Louisiana.

Just picked up my 03 Thomas from a private seller in MS. Two and half hour drive home went well with no issues other than it pulled to right pretty hard. Tire pressure maybe off idk yet. I feel like I got an awesome deal and he has a few more hes wanting 3 to 5k for. front engine and pushers.

thanks everyone. cummins 24 valve and md3060. 65 70 felt comfortable on the interstate and didnt feel like i needed a sixth, seems like it would want to down shift to 5 too often for every hill and i dont know that i want to take up above 70 anyways lol.

ill try to post a couple videos in the next few days. wont be in any hurry to convert to rv anytime soon though. we're finishing up a small renovation on a 26ft camper now and eventually put the camper stuff in ol blue. couldnt pass up this one since i had been looking for a couple months.

For those looking for a bus, my advice would be facebook market place. i moved my location around and found more buses like i wanted within 250 miles at fair prices than on any other auction site.
