when my Volkswagen broke down in terms of long distance travel.. I decided it was time to pursue my conversion bus dream.
I am the new owner of a 1983 GMC short bus. perhaps it is a Class A but I'm new to this and this thing has no owners manual. seems to have been built by an outfit called carpenter in Indiana.
it's on board registration says that it should have a diesel engine but it doesn't it has a gasoline 350 v8 crate engine with low mileage.
coming from having been working on my broken down Volkswagen in a campground with a small tool box.. I am really excited about the bus.
Solar and cedar, propane cook station, a full sized trundle bed and a grey water wash station, backup diesel generator, large battery array with room for storage (is about my plan, currently I am working hard to make it look like a cargo van by stripping out all of these school-related bus component.)
so far I'm in tear down mode, the seats are gone and the mid-chassis heater is hacked out after a slight coolant spill and some quick saw/screwdriver work ..
yup I am a newbie I'll be cruising around here looking for advice and ideas
nice to meet you!
