I'd get the bus first.
The back doors are different depending on who made it.

Just my thoughts, so take it for what its worth. But I'd sure hate to mess with such a great looking rig.

LOL wanna trade for a 6 window? I'd definitely love to trade my bus for that.

Thanks EastCoast but we do love the bus. It will work the way it is but it would be so much better with alittle more living space. Our other idea was to haul a smart car on the flatbed and leave it the way it is now.

Could tow a camper trailer with it.

seriously- if you ever decide to sell it I'd love a rig like this.

FWIW- I think you may like a 6 window length. It would have that extra space. All you'd need then would be a tow hitch.

Just such a nice job on that bus, it looks awesome!

Pricing shouldn't be that different due to make.

Can't remember where, or what it was, but a month or so ago, there was someone selling "the back 3 feet" (including door) of a bus. No idea if it's still for sale. You might try Dailylister, or one of the other C/L hookup sites.

You guys can get a non-runner for not very much money. Buy a cheap bus that has the parts you need and try to sell off the parts you don't want or need. Scrap the rest of the bus when you're tired of looking at it.

You may start sidelining in used bus parts.
