on our side isle when you close the door between the kitchen , bathroom and then close the door from the bed room to the bath room it makes the bath room huge . only difference is I have a 3rd door that closes off the bath tub and the crapper . this way with the side isle there is more room in the tub,crapper area . we had the bowling alley center isle in a sticks , staples m/h with a window in the back . my wiffe ,I hatted it but the dog loved it as she would through the dog toys all the way to the back and the dog could run well we were on the road

There are two models of the current 50VR, it's the same model name for both but different part numbers.

Sorry but I do not understand the statement that a center hall makes better use of space as it does not wast space. A hall that transitions from point a (kitchen ) to point b (bedroom ) is still a hall . A 6x2 hall is 12 sq.ft along side or in center. Undecided

IF this air leak is a new issue, be careful when you start welding, that air beam might be rusted more than you suspect and you get into a mess, having had a MC7, I never needed the block off plates for the front, but sure would give em a good thought.

If it welding it doesn't correct it consider going with the "rolling lobe" air bags and not just "block off plates and stock bags.
The rolling lobe bags will give a much smoother ride.

I'm with Jeremy and agree it might be easier to use two 2-way valves than to locate and set up one 3-way valve.

Just dreaming, thinking. My current bus is a skoolie, Gillig 636 with 3208 cat @ 250 hp, 5 speed manual trans. Bought and converted for a specific trip. Alaska. Did that. I would like something nicer, faster. Preferably with a mechanical engine (not a Detroit) and manual trans. 35 foot is long enough. 102 wide would be nice. I know next to  nothing about transit buses. What should I be looking for? I would welcome your thoughts and reasons for same. Thanks Alan

In some ag applications (sprayers) three way valves are used. They would either be plastic (can it take the heat?) or stainless ($$$$).

Likely, when your welder starts to work on that hole, he will make several new ones. That steel may well be so corroded that it is very thin by now
and trying to weld up a leak like that may only create more problems. I went through exactly that on mine when I had it all apart. The more I welded,
the more holes I had. I did finally get it to seal up, and it has been holding, but...

Welds don't normally just develop pin holes after 40 years. There's a reason that hole appeared.

Good luck. It's worth a try, but don't be surprised if it can't be patched.
