I will just have to duck some... I hope I wont spend a lot of time pasing up and down the isle...
Being tall is not all bad... but being a bit closer to normal height can be good, too....
I lyke your BUS.... I want ONE lyke it.
Thanks. We like it also
There are tons of buses out there and plenty without any rust. If I could recommend one thing, it would be to try and spend a little more money up front getting the exact platform that you want. For me it would kind of suck to go through an entire conversion and just end up wishing you had x or y.
We spent about 3 months searching craigslist/ebay before we came upon the bus we now have. Big motor, right transmission, rear engine, etc just what we were looking for. We spent a few bucks more for this bus but it was exactly what we needed.
Once you decide on what kind of specs you want, try to find a geographical area of the country that would need such specs in a bus.
For us it was the mountains of Oregon that we found the big motor type buses. If we wanted a bus with factory A/C we would be looking in Phoenix.
It really also comes down to what your planned intention for the bus is. My above opinion is based on a full time living arrangement. If we were building a weekend camper or tail gate rig, well my opinion would change a bit.
As far as your posting woes, it probably comes down to your IP getting caught up in the spam filters. There is a bit of a spam issue on this board and I think only a moderator could help you with that.
Good luck on your hunt. Don't be a stranger, no one here bites.
