Hi everyone! I want to say a hearty thank you to all you folks who share soooo much information! This is a great education and adventure we’re already enjoying
Well, we checked city ordinances...only one driveway per house and ours in front of our garage/art studio is short! We aren’t in a place to completely re-landscape our front yard and put a new driveway in so we are looking for a shorter bus. We love the traditional bus style...the turtle backs don’t appeal to us and hope to find a bus 24 foot to 20 foot long..18 the shortest if flat nose. We’d prefer a dognose or flat face with pusher engine...don’t want an engine right by us when on the road unless somebody knows some magical insulation process that takes care of heat and Lise in one fell swoop!
We’ve been taking notes from your suggestions about the best engines, transmissions, gearing, tires, rust, history, maintenance, miles, insulation, where the engine is and interior height of the bus and think we might be able to make an educated decision now
Short buses seem to be in high demand so I’ve been checking our resources everyday.
Anybody have one? We’re interested in straight from the school to unfinished or finished we can put our mark on.
Thanks so much! We’re excited to share in the adventure of the build and the road! Getting close to retirement and would love to have a less expensive way to get out and about!
