Hiya

Oh goodness...this is super scary, super excited and a beautiful idea. My 9yo has started designing TO SCALE his bus using graph paper. I've ordered foam core for him to glue components together to move around a scale sized (40ft basis) bus. I originally was just allowing his genius to come through and not really seriously entertaining the thought. But, i am convinced!!! I am in love!! I am also nervous as a single mommy to dive in. 😬 Is it safe? I'll have soooo many questions so please have a lil mercy lol.

OHHH I LOVE IT! He's scary intelligent. Chances are he'll be my navigator lol. --- funny story (Don't laugh) ln june i had to back my lil 5x8 trailer into my backyard. Ronin fussed at me from the drivers door nooo, TURN THE WHEEL TO THE RIGHT! In a very superior tone lol. Finally he said "JUST GET OUT AND LET ME DO IT!!!" He had just turned 9. Finally after i told him noway, you can't drive. He undrr his breath goes, neither can you, b4 saying snottily " You should've played videogamea!" Which i still giggle over. Sooo yea, he'd love this. TY

Is it safe?

School buses are arguably the safest vehicles on the road. Thing is, when buying a bus, you have to be patient and choosy...no point in rushing in and getting a bus that needs $10,000 worth of mechanic work before you start the conversion.
