Re: Why choose a city bus? by TomC
Post New Message I have a 77 AMGeneral transit that took me 6 years to convert because of having to make all hangers, storage compartment, generator cabinet below floor level. While it is cheaper than an intercity, it is alot of work. Some advantages-don't need to raise the roof with 6'10" of headroom, lower floor level so only two steps in the bus or three steps up from the ground, I have manual air dump for the air suspension that puts me close enough to the ground that you don't need an additional door step, huge windows, same drivetrain as all other Vdrive buses, simple 12v system, is built like a tank with reinforced bumpers, have all systems anyone would want. Disadvantages-harder to convert and don't have alot of basement storage. Mine is 99"widex22"tallx66"long. Enough for tools, chairs, BBQ, carpet, etc. Good first converter, but my next one is going to be either a VanHool or MCI 35 x 102 intercity, since I believe I can be happy with the 35 instead of the 40. Good Luck, TomC
