Good Morning Everyone, Thanks for all the well wishes, Frank, Eleanor says thanks, she is a lurker here every once in a while, enjoys reading alot of the posts in several areas so you never know. Old Car Nut, thanks for the tip , I've been squirting aerosol oils in locks for yrs. I have used those lock thaw sprays, I think they are alcohol. Tim, Recovery they say is 6 to 8 weeks but 1 year for complete. Rail, I say the same thing about the internet its a great thing thats for sure, it has made life alot easier. -8* this am and very windy, not sure what will get done today.

Jay,


That back end bus would make a great garage for a toy hauler or in-law suite!

Looks like the perfect fixer upper handy man corner type of project. It is just down the road from us.

I thought about one of these for a while when we converted our bus but decided it was more than I wanted to do.

It would be neat to pull into a campground and see if they had someplace to park it.

Motor is at the back end so having a rear dropdown would be problematic. Sideways it is only 8' so the 9' Harley would have to park on an angle with a side loading door.

Good Evening, Jay, those are really neat, we used to have a few of those in the Albany area, we used to deliver buses and trucks but never drove one. Lynne, I'm not bringing my in laws camping . . but the possiblites are endless. Gordon, I'm with you I'd like to see one in a campground, to see if it would fit. Got a little done today, some more on the electrical, microwave and all the plugins now work. Still researching the major components, I do know about some, going with a Trimetric 2030RV monitor, and a SC-2030 charge controller. I am still checking out inverters and solar panels. If I can figure out how to do it I will put up a drawing of my proposed system, and get some opinons, I think there may be a few out there.

Can't find it now, but I saw a Motorhome video that had a slide out in the back bedroom that resembled a heavy duty side closet for loading motorcycles in from a door on the back end wall.

Then the closet/small motorcycle garage slid back into the coach for transporting.

I think those articulated buses are too wide for a normal license. Most of the M.A.N. ones need a special permit. Don't remember where I read that.

Lookin' good Terry! Best of luck with the knee surgery and recuperation.

That would work but would be heavy.

Saw something similar on a MH from Germany. The slide was for a Mercedes SLK. Was well beyond my pay grade.

Still a pretty neat idea if you don't require a big bed!
