I also think our demographic is middle aged married family men. I think that helps.
I just bought my first cool bus have not even got it home yet its about a 150 miles from home, and it will need to be trailered home.
Its a 1950 chevy don't even know the coachwork just love the curvey aristreamed rear end with 50 truck front end I think it looks really cool
You, sir, are doing what my life's dream is. Some people dream of a 1968 Mustang....others of a Model T....some people want a slammed S-10.....I want a 1940's or 1950's vintage Wayne or Superior coach to play with. I dream of picking up one on a 1.5 ton frame....I'd modernize and modify it with a Chevy 14bolt dually rear and 2wd 1 ton chevy coil style front suspension....a big block....air suspension on every corner...and plenty of chrome while still holding on to that nostalgia (8 foot sidepipes?). But...and this is a big but....I would never THINK of changing the body other than perhaps some very short side skirts to make it look that much lower.
Did I mention I'm actually a 4wd guy so ground clearance is USUALLY what I'm looking for?
As for the demographic...I think you're pretty right on with it. I guess I'm an exception as I'm only 22 and certainly not married, but hey...I wanted to get the toys BEFORE a ring. My understanding is it's just easier that way.
