Travel Nurse going Skokie

Hello there to everyone my wife and and myself are both travel nurses and have traveled coast to coast trailering her car behind my truck. We have desires to be more autonomous and take the bed room and kitchen closer to the outdoors. Will be interested in getting some great advise from those who have done it.

Would like a flat nose looking at one thatís partially converted for a really reasonable price 2004 RE300 with a t444e and a 3060 Allison but Iím unsure of the 7.3 cause they are turds in the Ford F series.

Another bus is a 2007 Thomas city transport bus 30 passenger with a Cummins/ Allison trans which is completely stock, befits for Me it has a taller roof. Iím 6í4Ē so I donít know whatís really the best bet as far as which route to take ?

Sent you a primer of some of the basics to know, as well as a link to some inspection info that can help.

Welcome to the site. I hear the MD3060 is a good transmission ... might even say it is sought after around here.
