Does anyone tow a vehicle behind their skoolie?
I'm a little worred about the trip to from michigan to northern nevada and back this summer. My skoolie has about 265,000 miles on the odometer. She runs perfect, but on a long journey, there are lots of problems that may arise.
In case of total thermo nuclear meltdown of the bus engine/drive train while on the road, i've decided to tow my own rescue pod. Most RV's are seen pulling a jeep, VW, or other small car. I plan to pull a full size van. The van will be an automatic, so I am going to remove the drive shaft. I'm not going to use a dolley, rather i'll utilize a tow bar. The van can be used for added storage on the journey out west.
If the bus is injured and needs parts, i can use the van to run to town to buy the needed items. If catastrophic failure occurs, I can remove a number of the more expensive items from the bus (generators, batteries, stereo ect) load them into the van, and take off. I will arrange with the nearest junk yard to come pick up what's left of the bus.
I don't forsee anything bad happening to the bus while on my trip, i just like to be prepared.
