Hello everyone! I'm trying to pick out a bus for my first conversion project. I've found a 2006 C5500 Shuttle bus that might work for me but is a 4 hour drive away to see and I'm trying to gather as much info as I can before I go for a look. It has the 6.6L Duramax, from what I've read it sounds like more or less positive reviews however I can't find too much info on the C5500 itself.
Hoping someone can chime in on some general pros and cons. I've read all the skoolie vs shuttle threads I could find and I think for the most part, a shuttle would work for me but every now and then I might want to go down a rough road to get into a mountain lake, nothing crazy rough but from what I've read, shuttles tend to like flat paved roads vs almost anything offroad.
Any advice and opinions are appreciated! I've attached a pic as well. 01515_6iEji0jbAS7_1200x900.jpeg
