Thanks for noticing the small changes that i have made.. I picked up a set of wheels and tires off of an old iroc. The tires are like new, and what a better ride. I also got ride of the whit and painted the bumpers black. I have got most of the inside insulated, I fixed my over heat froblem as well. I need a hitch anyone know what works for a rees type hitch.

Looks like you brought out the picture of The Big Van. I've got one of them also that I'm converting into a motorhome. It's an 82 RTS with the 350hp 6V92. Should be a blast if and when it get done. Gotta finish the 66 Chevy Van first.

How is the mileage?

And I thought finding room to park an extra van was a problem.

I get about 8.5 to 9 gpg. I have a 4:10 gear ratio witch is hard to get in this bus unless you spend around 4000.00. It also lets me cruis at 70 to 75 mph. The bus drives like a sports car.

Nice Bus! I was looking into buying one of those to make into a motorhome a few years back. I decided that I wanted to build something that would go off road instead. You lucked out on the 4.10s. If you remove that 10 ton air conditioner condenser fan unit from the rear, the empty area makes a really nice spot for a diesel genset.
