Long time lurker learning what I can from the posts on the forum. The forum posts have been really helpful so thanks to everyone.
My partner and I started looking into a skoolie conversion but after much research, we are pretty sure we want to go with an 40' MCI conversion with a Detroit Diesel 8V92 so we can have a toad. We are shortys at under 5'5" each so the 6'9" space seems like it would be plenty of headroom without a roof raise. We plan to live/travel/work full time for a while in the conversion.
We are looking at pulling the trigger soon and wondering if you might have some advice.
Right now we are looking at these 2 busses.
and a 1993 MCI C
BUS TO RV & CA SMOG
We love the steel/aluminum exterior of the 1977 and since we live in CA I think the 1977 bus to Auto title won't need to pass smog if I understand correctly?
WHAT TO LOOK FOR
As a newbie my research on the forum has educated me on checking out the tire condition and looking for leaks as well as rust on the body.
What else might you recommend inspecting when checking out a potential bus?
Thanks for any and all advice. I have learned so much from the forum and appreciate all the posts.
