Re: i'm a newbie, i have gas mileage and off road questions

from my experience, conventional front engine schoolies tend to do much better than their flat nosed or rear engined cousins in low traction enviroments.

The problem with a skoolie off road is that if it gets stuck it's the biggest thing around....can't just use a pickup truck to yank it out.

this is coming from a someone who once had a $3500 tow bill after getting stuck on the beach in texas. All Texas Towing....what a bunch of lying cheating SOB's!

Re: i'm a newbie, i have gas mileage and off road questions

Welcome to the gang. The best option for storing your bus when you live in town is knowing someone who has a farm nearby! I've had to store my bus 26 miles away from my home in the city because I had no room to keep it. It's very inconvenient. Otherwise you could look at renting a spot at an RV storage facility, but that could cost a hundred or more bucks a month.
