Howdy y'all

I'm new at this but am willing to learn. Have open ears and questions galore. I am looking at a 1972 school bus for purchase. It doesn't have engine or transmission and I don't need wither anyway because I want to remove the front clip and bend frame inward to make a trailer hitch. I want to tow it behind my F350 super duty as a camper. Buses make a sturdier body than a camper any day. Need input on this so I can make it happen correctly. Thanks in advance.

Depending on how long it is and how much it will weigh you might want to consider turning it into a gooseneck instead of a ball hitch.
