Skoolie newbie

Hello all,

I recently took the plunge and bought a 2001 Thomas Saf-T-Liner ER activity bus with a rear engine 8.3L ISC and MD3060 trans for conversion.

I'm near Houston, TX if anyone else is out there and may be interested in sharing ideas.

I've spent hours reading through posts here and I can't say enough about the community and the guidance/wisdom shared here.

Thank you all and I'm proud to be a new member!

Welcome to this site. You picked one of the best drive trains and getting an activity bus is an extra cherry on top. It was what I would gotten had I not found my Crown
