Does the engine run and when was the last time you drove it?
Do you have photos?
Thanks.

Drives great, last time was cross country to the southwest Arizona/ california, 11 months ago. See our Dory trip report.
For photos see our Dory build threads.


We towed a small econoline 4*4 bus to skoolie palooza.

The bus sits on blocks as not to collapse the airbags to much.

So it has been up on blocks for 11 months? Has the engine been turned over during those 11 months? Why would the airbags collapse from sitting on the tires?
How about some photos?

No use to turn the engine over unless you want to warm it up.
As the air from the airbags disappears the bus settles on the bump stops inside the airbags. The rubber of the bags would be creased for a long time and potentially weaken. For that reason it is better to not allow the bus to settle for a long time in its lowest position. Hence there are blocks under the frame that keep the suspension uncollapsed.

Tguy where are you located, why are looking into a low floor bus? Did you find the build threads of this bus?
