The bus and trailer look great. What do you use the trailer for?

This coach has been running awesome, and I've put on about 16,000 miles, almost all of it used for attending motocross races.

Kool, but you need a riding mower to complete your bike step down.

Don't really need a lawnmower because the tracks are always well groomed, but I did make a custom pressure washer ;)

I'm late to the party- just found this thread today!

But I sure do love it when a well thought out plan comes together! This was a great build!!

I don't know exactly because once I jump in it, I turn on the diesel Gen, and the diesel Aquahot system, but with everything running, and not really driving nice, I'm getting about 7MPG, I'm sure if I slowed down, and didn't use the gen or aquahot, I could probably get it up to 8-8.5mpg

Bringing the biggest coach ever built on skoolie.net back to the top for new members to see.

What kind of transmission would this thing have?

I'm off to do some research.
