Nice Looking bus, wonder how close to asking price they'll get...

I'll go with "probably not even close to half."  For their sake, I hope I'm wrong, but that's how the market is these days.

Cheers, John

Also they need to be scrubbed down a few times a year. I use dish soap and a black scrub pad. After a good rinse we put the highest number skin sunblock rubbed into them . Right now they have number fifty. Here is a blog I was reading with a article he did on UV and tires.

   GREAT TO HEAR FROM YOU BRUCE!  WE DO LIVE CLOSE TO WINSTON AND I LOOK FORWARD TO VISITING   WITH YOU IN YOUR MOST UNUSUAL CONVERSION. ... 

   Nice!  You're in a good area for busnuts - there are several in the Winston/Statesville/Hickory area (I think, most of us are in small towns away from the larger cities) and there are a few in the "Triangle" area (including Gene Lewis, south of Raleigh) and a good number down near Charlotte.  Best wishes on your move and getting to know your bus.

  B,

They lock together only one way. If you don't do it correctly the ramp won't stay together.

Yeah, I've driven too far a few times but since the slope on both ends is so gentle it is really no problem normally. That gentle slope is another nice thing about these blocks but it also means you need a bunch of them.

You can use a big block of wood on the plastic block if you absolutely have to stop. I've done that when going too far would be a hazard.  

    OK, thanks.  That sounds like good news, should be easier than plain "block with a ramp" wood drive-up blocks.

    I have a set of these.  I was camped at an event a few months ago.  Somebody next to me drove off and left a set on the ground.  I went to the camp office and asked if they'd get in touch with the owner but they said "oh, we can't do that ... no, we won't take them".  So I took them home and contacted the organizers of the event and they sent out a notice but couldn't find the owners.  I'd be happy to get them back to the real owners but after a couple of years, I guess I can use them.

Any tire that sits will rot because the oils in the rubber need to be exercised and circulated throughout the rubber.

No, I'm not that smart, I just read it online:)

The urine is in a sealed airtight jug if I recall - so there is no slosh or spillage.

I've also seen instructions online for how to build your own composting toilet, so it can be done on a budget.

Cheers,
