So I bought a bus

Hello all! The name is Justin and I just picked up my first skoolie!.. Was planning on building a teardrop camper, then this popped up, and I grabbed it spur of the moment,lol. I have some work ahead of me, and look forward to talking to alot of you and learning what I need to know!

Nice.
I was about to start building a teardrop but ended up with a forty foot Ward and a Shorty instead.
Be careful, they're addictive.

Ok so I owned a GM 6.2 and am familiar with the 6.5 but I don't believe a 6.3 exists.
