Re: Skoolie ideas, input needed

As far as things are concerned in Oregon, you dont need any special licenses for anything plated as a motorhome as long as it is 40ft or smaller.

Re: Suggestions for buses with good MPG?

What type of transmission are you running? Sometimes changing from an automatic to a manual can save lots of fuel. If you can find a 10 speed, there is nothing better.

Re: My 1987 Crown (Finally)

Yeah, people are always surprised when I tell them it is a 1987, they always expect it to be older. I blame Crown's classic styling. They didnt change the design much between the 50s and 1991 when...
