G'day from South Australia

It says for new members to say G'day.
I couldn't get much newer if I This is my first time ever to join a forum of any description and the first time ever to own a bus.
After we sealed the deal I turned to my husband and said 'We own a bus....never owned a bus before'.
We have just purchased a 1988 MAN bus. 40ft long ex public transport bus. The type that lowers itself to curb level with airbags. It has already been stripped inside and was once done as a basic makeshift camper but has since been stripped again.
We are starting with an almost blank slate and plan to build it up as a fully fitted motorhome to take extended holidays and travel with our business. Hubby and I have talked about doing this for about fifteen years now and we are both very excited, have lots of plans, ideas and building skills but will definitely benefit from the wealth of experience on this forum. Thank you in advance for any advice and help. Cheers from South Aust.

Welcome from Kansas!
I have seen pictures of Man trucks, I bet those buses are built very well!

I am waiting patiently for pictures.
does your bus have the cool dog on the front grill?
like this truck does?

I cannot think of a better forum to be your first one to join!
