Just getting started

I am new to bus conversions and this forum. I am disabled which makes flying difficult. My family and I decided that a bus conversion might be the answer for future vacations. We purchased a 1987 MCI 102-aw3 last July and began the conversion. The 'w' in aw3 stands for a factory installed wheelchair lift. We have the interior stripped, windows removed, new sides installed, insulation in and are starting electrical. Will keep you updated.

Good choice for a conversion, I got a 91 102aw3 last sept and converted to a 2 bedroom coach. We removed the wheelchair lift and gave it to a friend who is in a chair and has a truck conversion without a lift.
The big side door is now in our side hall and makes getting the conversion stuff in very easy. We have even loaded a 10 ft kayak in the hall for camping trip. Bed frames with drawers ,dinette,and of the grid fridge all easy to load through there.
I see you are in wash. we bought our bus in Federal Way. good luck and have fun .
