We are wanting an RV that we will be comfortable with taking anywhere in the country.
Hi S,Bearnett, I hope you got the bus, I just bought one here in canada, its a yes 1969 Converted in Texas in 1975, I have the 892ta in it and lok the power, As far as tyhe 871, they run and run, I have worked with many of them, They are a good motor,
this 892 ta is rated at 450 hp, It can be turned up to 750 I dont think thats a good idea LOL
