Hello all! Iím Brian Hagler and live in mid- Michigan. I won an auction on a wheelchair bus with the intention of making it a camper to take my son camping. Itís a 1998 Amtran International 3800 with 444e engine and 545 Allison tranny. I have seen the debate on this engine/ trans combo and I donít mind it for the following reasons; cheap and abundant parts, I have a midsize bus so power isnít much of an issue, and the price was right. I brought it home today and managed about 60mph at 2200rpm with zero issues. Not bad for an engine with about 243,000mi on it. So, my adventure begins.
