How much weight can it tow? by Bus No. 8
Post New Message Hi all,

I have a quick question: how much weight can one safely tow behind a school bus?

Here's what I'm working with:

1989 Thomas Saf-T-Liner MVP-ER (Rear Engine)
200-horsepower Caterpillar 3208 Engine
Allison AT-545 4-speed Automatic Transmission
Air Brakes
57+2 W/C Cap. (78 Pax. Cap. Body)
30,000 lbs. G.V.W.R.
124,xxx Miles

I'd like to use it to haul some of my belongings from Indiana to California, and I'd also like to hitch a car hauler or small trailer to the rear of it.

We used to hitch small pick-up trucks and vans to the rears of school buses when we were delivering them new, but I never thought to ask what the weight limit was.

If anyone has any information that may be helpful, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.
