hey all -
first time poster, new to the forum. iíve decided, even though i have no experience with stuff like this, it was time for me to convert a bus and hit the road. iím ready to get to work as soon as i can find the right bus. but iím pretty much in over my head mechanically and hoping i might find a little guidance here.
specifically, i found this bus here. i love the look and the size ( i want to be under 30ft). itís already gutted, which is nice. they say it runs great and the tires are in good shape. iíll confirm that and have a mechanic have a look at it. itís a late nineties freightleiner shuttl bus, with a cummins diesel (5.9 i think) and allison transition. there are 137k miles. is this the sort of thing thatíd be good for s conversion? are there potential problems with this type of rig? why is it that school buses are more common than shuttle buses like this? will it have ended enough power? what am i missing?
would you recommend i go iím a different direction?
i appreciate your help.
