Newbie Saying Hi

Hey everybody! My wife and I just purchased a 2008 International RE300 and are in the process of converting it into our home - ideally for at least a couple of years. We are located in the Orlando area but looking to travel and maybe move once the project is completed. I have a little bit of plumbing and construction experience, but am a total newbie when it comes to mechanical and electrical work. Looking forward to taking advantage of this amazing resource and helping out where I can.

Most of us are too broke or now tech savvy enough to own those late model epa engines.

I see you're local. We've got a couple buses out here in Apopka/Sorrento.
Give us a shout sometime!

Welcome....we bought our 1992 bluebird on May 17, 2015 and have been weekend warriors ever since renovating this bus. I am retiring in 280 days (June 1, 2019 and plan to travel the backroads of America, selling my art work to subsidize the trip and living without too many restrictions or commitments. Time has flew by and it doesn't seem like its been over three years since we purchased the bus. this site is a great resource for information along with You Tube....check out our videos on you tube under "School Bus Adventures"...
