Anyone know where I can get my bus towed and repaired? We're broke down in Miami and are having problems finding anyone that will even tow it.

I hope you are off the road with it at least. Stay with it and the law should come along soon and help you get it towed somewhere for help.


Good luck folks,




John

I know an outfit in Orlando that will tow a bus. Johnson's Towing.
Cost $450ish to get ours towed about 20 miles.

HOLA & Welcome!

I sent you a PM with my number, let's meet.

I am in Cutler Bay, how about you?

We are finishing with one roof raise, for a friend of mine, went 18".

Mine is next, in the process of gutting it out.
