Exclamation Need help with my roof raise!!

Hello fellow skoolie members. My name is Bear and I have a 2003 International Blue Bird T444E. I am doing an 18 roof raise and I need help. I have the bus almost ready to start the raise but I need to have someone who has done a roof raise or knows how to do it come out to my house and look at my bus. I will pay for your travel if necessary. I live in central northern Connecticut. Im 25 minutes from Hartford CT and 25 minutes from Springfield MA. I have two welders and all needed tools ready to go now I just need some advise from someone who knows what to do. If you are interested in chatting please feel free to call (413)-328-3761 or email me at Thanks in advance for your help!!!

I don't want to come off as rude but there are plenty of threads here on the topic of roof raising.
I would recommend looking at some, get an idea of what needs to be done and yes, then ask questions.

I myself have done two roof raises, really not that hard but it is labor intensive work for sure.

If you can do simple welding then you can do a roof raise but I would not try it without reading some of the threads here in the forum.

Here is one of my threads, there are many more really good ones here...

No "ONE" method is right or wrong, just different ways of skinning the cat.

Whatever route you take, read the posts and get sum freee edumecation !!!
