New guy with a shorty.

I guess the title is sort of funny.. I've been trying to join for months without success untill I read where this sight won't accept gmail acct. WTH..
I just bought a 1997 ford e350 shuttle bus, 12 passenger, 5.4 litre,single rear wheels so its narrower than most. Conversion plans are basic , Futon with bunk bed along the drivers side , futon along the back, small closet behind driver, TV , radio,DVD player above driver/passenger, small sink with microwave along the passenger side.
I'm using it to pull my trailer with ATV SxS and camping with my son ,nephews,brothers. Going to Hatfield mccoy trails next month. Lots of good info on this sight!! Reading alot about conversions but I'm going with a minimal conversion, nothing fancy just functional.
I used to tow with a half ton jeep grand wagoneer and tent camped but getting to old for freezing in a tent anylonger.This 1 ton sure is nice for pulling the trailer , I'll never go back to a half ton!
I live in Ohio and love to ATV ride. Glad to meet you all!!

Welcome fellow new guy with shorty...

Remember its not the size of the bus but where you park it that counts..
