I can't decide whether I like it or not. The curved sides remind me a lot of my own bus, and raising the roof ain't easy when there's a curve like that. There certainly been a huge amount of work gone into this, and kudos to the owner/builder for that - and the RTS is probably my all-time favourite bus in terms of the way they are originally constructed as well - they're way beyond other buses in that respect.

The big side windows on this are great (again, very similar to my own), but the windscreen is too short and uglifies the whole bus. And I'd definitely be changing those boy-racer rear lights pretty sharpish if it was mine. On the whole though, and assuming an inspection showed that the work had been done to a high standard, I would probably think very seriously about buying this I was in the market and if the price was right. But then I'd take it apart and install slide-outs

right beside the passenger seat.....see the banister 

    Oh, yeah, thanks.  I'm not familiar with that kind of bus - and the photo "flattens" things out so that it looks like the passenger seat is against the right-side wall, but I guess it's more in the middle of the bus.  It looks like a lot of work has been put into it but still ... not my cup of tea.

A few thoughts from a native...

I35 defines the change from east Texas weather to west Texas weather.  On the west side, weather is much more dramatic from icy blue northers in the winter to tornados in the spring and early summer.  Winter in this part of Texas used to last from mid-January to mid-February but with global warming has been extending a month earlier and later.  If you are here for 6 months, you will miss the serious heat the starts in July and tends to be several degrees F hotter on the west side.

Coming from the east, hitting I35 any farther north than Hillsboro on your way in is a BIG mistake.  This means do not come from the east on I20.  I35 splits just out of Hillsboro and the west branch will take you straight into Keene.  I have not been on this section of 35 recently so hopefully someone else can chime in regarding highway construction on this road.

Welcome to Texas !

 Found a great place in West Sac, at 3111 West Capitol Blvd. 916-371-5066  After hours916-869-5388, It is called "Radial Tire Center Inc". Aron nice kid put it all together. I went down got a price and they had a lot of tires in stock. They did it all in 1-1/2 hours. They also do mechanical work in the other bays. They have 4 pits. They do a lot of Commercial trucks.

The 11R x 22.5 Toyo's G rated they had in stock. He had 12R X 22.5 but only had 4 of them and said he could get the other 2 the next day. They had Alcoa's in the show room I think for 297.00 GCR wanted 400.00 for them.
Toyo's, Michelins, Hercules, Kumho's, and a bunch of other's.

GoodYear commercial is next door but was 800.00 more.

GCR on Richards Blvd. had FS 400 and FS 560 but wanted 1,200.00 more for those and only had 12 x 22.5 H

Grant tell him I sent you.
