New member from Hammond LA

Hello everyone,

I am a new member from Hammond, LA. I am interested in building out a bus for my retirement. It needs to be a bus with a wheel chair lift or a kneeling bus with a ramp system.

So far I am leaning towards the rear engine diesels but we haven't 100% decided yet.

I have a full workshop where I can do wood and metal work. I also restore Aircooled Volkswagens and I own a 1974 VW Thing.

If any of you are in Louisiana or Mississippi and need help with projects I would love to see your bus so I can learn more about preparing for my bus.

Thanks,
"CX"

Did you find a bus?

Diesel for sure. Rear engine, you'll get different opinions about that. I wouldn't do it myself but mostly because it's weird. I have heard others talk about cooling issues with RE buses.

Actually I found a rolling office that has a disability lift. The inside will have to be converted into a camper. It will also need windows installed.

Torres, I can't drag my tools to Slidell but if you can drive the bus and you need assistance with welding or fabrication I am happy to help. I need to stay close to home because of my wife's disability.
