    What is the model number for that Reese Hitch? I went to U-Haul and they don't have any idea because they can't put the school bus in the computer so they can't figure out which hitch will work.

    i was thinking you could put in the front part of that trailer a biodeisel thing and make your fuel as you go that way you can save money on gas since fuel averages 3 to 350 a gallon in some places biodiesel burns cleaner has a little more power and it smells better also you can make it for less the 80 cent a gallon

    Yea, put some insulation on that roof, and take your shoes off when you go inside. Then you will still fit. Otherwise, just put the insulation on the outside on the roof. It will save you a lot of heating or cooling, whatever the outside temperature might be. You're welcome.

  • David Jaeger
    David Jaeger 2 months ago +2

    Can I give you a couple suggestion...Install a single burner pot belly wood stove. There is dead wood all over the place. On a cold night a wood stove warms the bus. You can make hot coffee or cup or so of hot coco. And they warm the Quinta motels have awesome curtins in the rooms. All inside lights on..dark outside and you see 0 light...your bus look ok. And your right. It's not a motorhome. Motorhomes are crap. Leak. There very flimsey...schoolies are American build for steel. Your bus will still be around when the motorhomes are trashed....install air bags under the rear axel. It will improve the ride and grandma won't fly up on the celling when you hit a bumb

    Personal Inspiriation take notes:
    2:39 LED Light Upgrade. Must do.
    2:56 Air Horn upgrade external.... Nice. Must do.
    3:20 Drive Battery is seperate to Battery Bank.... Interesting.... Why? I must have 1 Kilowatt solar and 1-2 kilowatt storage or more with inverter and MPPT Charge controller.
    3:30 Isolater upgrade allows alternators to charge bank without draining drive battery if battery bank is spent.... Nice.
    4:45 425 65R 22.5 Rear Tall Tire Upgrade is suspension modifer and is gear changer that allows higher speeds like 80s
    5:20 Cut in Rack Install with pin. Allows sliding out of device like a drawer... Nice.
    5:37 Shore Power Inlet install Upgrade. Allows 110 Volts or 220. Must do. Nice.
    5:55 Hauling a roughly 16 foot Enclosed V nosed trailer.... Must do something similar. Nice. ^_^
    6:00 Hitch with a trailer brake system... Genius! Is it legal for school buses to have hitches? I want to haul an SUV on an open trailer behind my Bus. I wonder if that's possible.... I mean if this genius guy can haul a enclosed trailer and RVs can haul boats... Why not right?
    6:14 Motorhome Class... Must be worth the effort to have it in that class... Must research why.
    6:20 I Must have Hot Water heater of some type and Must have 200 gallons of White water.
    6:40 Trailer contents. I must have my BioDiesel processor and my two motorcycles fit. Might need 18 or 20 feet of hauler.
    7:25 No Grey or blackwater. That's cool. I'm thinking composting toilet maybe?
    7:50 Extra fuel storage upgrade.... Genius. I should install that upgrade on 3 sides of the hauler as well as 4 more on the outside right side of the school bus.... Genius!
    Side-note: I'll finish my Analysis later.

I’m definitely planning to re-gear it as well as change the tires (10R22.5 currently on it). So much of what you’ve done is what I’m planning too

    Hate to break the news to You, but Veterans were/are contractors of the comes the news flash...the U.S. is not America. The U.S. is foreign British owned Governmental Services Corporation that Took over America in 1878..Thank President Lincoln. America went bankruptcy, the US was put in place via International Bankruptcy laws, to perform the Salvage of America and its wealth.
    In case You have failed to see, most Americans are being booted out of their homes and all property taken from them.....Its Cause nobody own anything, yall just think you do.

      @Catalyst - D B I propose the exact thing you just said. Get off grid and far from any town's. I am doing the same. I would make it priority to learn the Law...on ones own, Because Law School is a farce and ONLY teaches Legal ...aka Color of Law. I suggest to everyone, just go pick up 1 law book and start reading. American Jurisprudence is a perfect Book for a new student. Statutes, codes, mandates and regulations ...ARE NOT LAW. Its is Public Policy that ONLY applies to US Citizens and Govt Employees. If there is no injured party, there is no crime, that is fact...but the Legal Society does not wish for anyone to discover this fact....because they have tricked everyone into believing Public Policy is law and it is enforceable...Its it not. Its Illegal and Unlawful for force Policy on someone. Sorry for the rant...i could go all day on this shit.

      As a 23 year old man, I can say I am only lightly familair with the topic. I am aware that owning the Mineral rights as well as the property rights to a plot of land doesn't mean that If I stop paying my property taxes or such, they won't take my land away from me... Because they will... If I stop paying. So that's the extent to which I'm familiar with the topic you've mentioned. Currently I'm striving for financial independence as I pursue to eventually live off grid.... What kind of solutions do you propose?

    Nice work! I love the flat black and great choice on the LED headlights. School buses are made for underside storage and you nailed it. I've been working on school buses for 24 years and heating these tin cans is a challenge but leaving the metal exposed and original windows for natural light is awesome. This is a very practical conversion with crafty ideas thanks for sharing!

I'm seeing my doctor this friday and I'm hoping they send me for surgery because I'm in a lot of pain right now and miss riding my bike, at this point i miss just walking without pain. Sure hope to come visit you guys at the K River this year.

    Hi. I like the things you stand for and believe in helping the same communities you do. (I also help with battered women shelters) Next time your in the Houston area you should give me a shout out. I am a retired locksmith and I am a fabricator as well. (and a Gunsmith). But I can help you out with fabricating a nice lock system for your door if it is still needed I have plenty of scrap materials and can make you a nice and secure system for you as a donation for your cause. Private message me some time when your coming through.
