Re: Bus Offroad? by Mark
Post New Message The only reason school buses work for hauling kids over dirt roads is because the route is planned and always the same. The big-ass back end of a medium or large school bus will bottom out pretty easily. To my dismay I discovered the front end of a front engine (snub nose) school bus will also bottom out easily, probably same thing with a rear engine type. If you want to hit the back roads in an RV I strongly suggest a heavy duty 4WD truck set up for off-road with a camper shell on the back. More lug nuts generally means heavier truck. I'd like to get a flat bed 4WD truck with a camper shell, and build storage and support around the sides. Good, short school buses are hard to find, they go quick. I suppose you could cut most the back end off a medimum sized conventional type and make it into a "toy hauler".
