My new home away from home.


This is my new home away from home, when it gets here in about 3 months time after it is converted to R/H drive and Aussie ADR compliant,

I will do going to the Kimberlys first in my boat, Then I will live in the bus untill I am to old to drive, 

It has all the bells and whistles, every thing that opens and shuts, I will put solar panels on the roof and then it will be totally self sufficient,

It is a house on wheels, It even has a inbuilt vaccum cleaner, Hahahahahahaha, I think I am going to like this life style,

Incredibly enough, It worked out cheaper than any thing I could get here, Including building my own using a bus as a platform,

Just a tad bigger than my rig Brian. I am just about to stop driving buses and coaches so don't want to drive a large vehicle in my travels. I know you will have a great time in it though when you get out in the playground, enjoy and,

Thats a 36 footer Doug, There was a 40 footer, But I thought that was too big for what I needed, Especially when it will have a trailer on the back with my Jeep and two bikes on it.

I also have to consider getting it up and down my drive, Very steep, I also live in a skinny street, Which may be a problem also, and selling my house is out of the question.

I want to park it some where and do the local sight seeing in the car or bikes,

It does 10 MPG, At 65 to 70 MPH, so its fairly cheap to run, At 100 KPH it will be even cheaper, They do 80 MPH very comfortably and safely, You can relate to that, Being a bus driver,

It has air bag suspension all round, 300 cat motor (3208) and a four speed Allison Auto, MT 643, On a Oshkosh chassis, Same as the garbage trucks,
Feel free to give your comments and advice on my bus, As I dont know very much about them,

I have been cruising the American forums looking for information, And I am led to believe they are a good unit mechanically, Especially if they have been looked after,
When I bought mine The PO owner drove it the 1500 miles from Texas to California to deliver it for me,

So going on that, Its roadworthy and registered, So thats in my favour for getting a good reliable unit, Well hopefully, I dont know how stiff the Americans are for roadworthy's on Buses.
Plus he put in a new battery and replaced a dodgy battery isolator switch at no extra charge after I bought it, So I assume with that he was proud of his bus and looked after it.

Very nice I'm an old X Bussie This does not look like the coaches I used to drive. Exterior looks great, as for the interior WOW that's fantastic. I could be happy just living in it on the driveway. Taking it travelling YOU'VE got it made..Well done.smile
