Looking for a bus to convert into an RV for full time living with wife and two kids.
I've been plowing through the forums here and have an idea of what will be involved to do the conversion right. I want to start with a sound machine that will be worth investing the time and materials into.
I definitely intend to push this thing across the country and that will include lots of mountains.
I found a discussion about the DT466 engine through this site (linked to this thread here
Also accompany it with a transmission like an MD-3060 or MT-643 or manual. DT466s do not like 545s... that's likely the "eating" combination you've heard about. We have 6 '01 AmTran FEs with DT466Es and 545s and 2 or 3 of them have had transmission replacements in the past couple years.
Is this combo a deal-breaker or is there a workaround/modification that is reasonable?
