I think a large consideration should be the terrain you'll be traversing most. If you'll be in the mountains, seems like you'll want something with a transmission cooler as a non-negotiable, and folks here have their own preferences around what type of brakes they require for peace of mind. I believe those options can vary a bit depending on the size and type of bus.
Wishing you the best of luck. It seems a lot of this comes down to intuition and a bit of risk-taking, which isn't exactly my favorite flavor, but I already committed to the lifestyle when I made my purchase.
i googled Chevrolet Express 3500, it's a van! and it tows! that's an option?! I assumed vans wouldnt tow. great find.
and good lookin out on the Transmission cooler, i'll add that to my ever growing list of things to look out for. there is so much to learn. Ive seen some threads on breaking systems, it's a little over my head. just out of curiosity, what kinda breaks do you like?
Thanks for the positive vibes. I totally agree with you on the risk taking, it's not my favorite. but i think that is what it's gonna come down to: taking the leap.
