So I have this Plan to use short bus...

I just won the bid on a bus that I'm pickin up Tuesday in MD. I'm planning to take the Title upon payin for it, go to local bmv, having called Monday to verify plan, & if no temp tag is bought, tape the title to window beside me or in back, & WING IT! I-68 W across MD to maybe 50? maybe 70, depending how it drives. The 7.3 was new 2yrs ago w/191k on it now.
Instead of converting it into an RV, I'm removing the walls & roof rearward from 1st window back. The 15 ft vinyl floor stays& a 102"W x 102"L steel deck gets welded underside of frame in back of rear axle. Two aluminum ramps, center channel & winch allows my bus become a Fltbd hauler. I'm considering cutting it off in MD B4 it's journey west to Cols OH

Seems a pretty bold endeavor to remove the back of the bus away from home, but when someone tells me something can't be done.... I dig my heels in!
