Picture 1 of 5 from Album Bus dad's Bus/RV history over 15 years
This is a converted Highway Post Office ( a rolling tank-  I could not find any of our pictures but same paint job- this pic shows a crown ours looked identical except ours was a twin coach- looked the same except we had 2 headlights not 4The engine was midmont - mounted on its side!!!we bought one of these already converted- had semi doors in the back- we took it sams and the forklift actually drove in the back and loaded 4 pallets of water and stuffed the rest of it with diapers and formula and went and assisted at Hurricane Katrina on day 2!!  We were not in a convoy just my family and I . When we got to staging area- State Police said where they were sending me was not safe for wife or kids.  Left them in Jackson MS and went to far south with no Cell service- delivered water just as town ran out- my water was distributed right out of the back- NO time for staging- they had had riots the night before, because when there as no water in town at all Walmart tripled the price of water - the townspeople burned down the walmart and then I am going there solo in this beast with no cell phone to the back woods of MS. it was quite the experience.  But this thing had a top of 53mph, would blow black smoke so bad when you got on it that one time a Ohio trooper pulled over because he thought we were on fire!!!!!  But inside was like a house 8 fld up bunks in he rear, and sofa and dinette shower bathroom etx in the front. If I had had the money we would have repowered it with a cummins and a new tranny. It had a British Leyland motor and no Power steering and a 5 speed. but it had the smoothest ride of anything we have ever been in-- my wife was driving in massive rainstorm at 50mph while I was sleeping- kids came and woke me up and said mom started feeling something different 10 miles back- I woke up hd her pull over- She had blown the L front tire and was still going 45 and balanced ( off kilter a little)  If we had done that in our bus or RB  we would have prob flipped )
