1983 MCI MC-9 and yes it has been already converted to an RV

had to build a parking area




and I drove it home today and got it into its new parking space in 1 try :) that was some luck..






and with dodge in front of it for good measure..


oh and my shop does look very small now :)

Looks like fun! What are your plans.....I know your going to tweak something.:D
right now the plans are to get the interior done so we can take it as a family for vacations..

I am redoing tile since we found some bad wood on floor and new carpet in back bedroom and front area. then we will be setting up beds, furniture etc..

little ideas I have are to setup welder, compressor, plasma etc for when wheeling and needing to do trail repairs :)

Bathroom shot?

How fast can you roll down the highway?

Do you have an idea of expected MPG?

This thing is cool. :smokin:

on installing tile.

are there concerns that shifting/twisting floor will pop up the tiles? or crack them?

It doesn't look like that many tiles, but they do weigh more than vinyl flooring does. (of course I hate vinyl flooring).

i think you use polymer additive (or something like that :p) to keep the mortar more flexible ...


Ken; very cool Bus .... cant wait to see more details :smokin:
