C2 Thomas 2012 -thoughts?
We are wondering if buying a short wheelbase 2012 freightliner C2 Thomas school bus (158” WB/Cummins 6.7L) is a good idea for a RV conversion. We want something small so we can drive to national parks, college football games, etc and would rather have this than a van due to the 78” interior height. We also want to haul 2 dirt bikes-300lb each and pull a race car trailer every now and then——how do these things ride and drive? If someone is driving 3000 miles per vacation, are they just as comfortable to drive as a heavy duty pickup or 1 ton transit van? The example we found has air seat and rear air suspension. I feel this would be a more solid vehicle than a van conversion. 100,000 miles and they are asking $28,000. Rust free. Also, can the black horizontal rub strips be removed to make the sides smooth like a limo or RV? Thanks.
