Why would you think you are a 'victim' and others that have been attacked here by others aren't???

People that live in glass houses ......

I believe ROS is in the process of driving his bus home, but I don't know what that has to do with this.

While you may think BCO's personal attacks on people are cute, I don't.  When you are one of his victims you might understand why I am supporting other victims of his tirades.

Ignoring someone isn't going to stop them from posting things about you or others.  I just don't understand why it is even remotely acceptable for one person to bully many others on 2 different boards.  Not only does it seem to be accepted, some of you think it is funny.  I personally stand by my statements that it is a call for help from someone who needs serious therapy.  Otherwise what would the purpose be of coming back from a trip and without any provocation starting to rip into people? 

Believe it or not, it is doing much harm to these boards, it isn't funny at all, the off topic rants are not cute and are not as witty as the author would like to believe.  The only purpose they serve is to drive hits to his blog which is as lame as the rants are on here. 

Personally, I pay for a subscription to the magazine and I wish to be able to come here and read about valid bus topics and not see someone bashing people who have helped me with being able to do things to my bus.  When I see someone who offers little to no actual assistance to anyone wasting space and bandwidth to start trouble with people so that they can have someone pay attention to them, it seems like a huge waste to me.  Because of one person, I rarely even check here or BNO anymore, pretty sad don't you think?

Ditto, but while I still think buying a professionally converted coach is still the most cost effective way to go it is with some reservations now due to a variety of factors.

Your wish to have a 45 puts you in the likely price range of $100,000 unless you will be satisfied with an entertainer with high miles or a motor home that has been beaten to death.

But, apart from having a ready to drive conversion, the advantage I see if the economics work out is that building a coach is as much a hobby as any other past time and the dollars spent are no different than spending the same dollars to ski or golf. As a hobby there is a lot of satisfaction that can come from doing a bus yourself. You just have to recognize you will devote many hours and weeks or years before you get to enjoy it for travel.

If you wanted a 40 foot bus, especially if you would go with a 2 stroke there is no way you could beat the price of buying one already converted. They are selling for very low prices.

Clifford, I think we should have a breathalyzer test that members have to pass before posting.

And a permanent block of all capital letter posts… All Caps posts are starting off on the wrong foot and never end well.

I have to admit I thought everyone was playfully goofing around in this post and I see now that isn't the case.

Reminder: Newbies are watching and this is a BUS blog. Go start a personal insult blog if you can't stand one another but aren't capable of pressing the ignore button.

Many here claim to be geniuses when it comes to buses and all things political, mechanical and spiritual. Yet you can't find the ignore feature? Really?  May I suggest the moderators post a "how to" video on ignoring someone you don't want to hear from for the technologically challenged among us?

Tell us all again how it's the younger generation that are wrecking our country, yeah they are the problem because they weren't taught the meaning of the word respect. As you act like a bunch of petulant children.

You should look for an already converted coach. The advantages of that have been discussed here extensively.

But if you insist on building your own, I suggest an MCI 102D3 (40'), or a 102DL3 (45'). Good, basic bus with the 102" width and the high head room. You will find them with Detroit S60 and B500, or other 4 stroke power trains.

Great to see you back Phil it's been a while.I went the 45 ft MCI route with a series 60 and B500 it doesn't
have the curb appeal of a Eagle but it sure rides and drives good, it felt like old times repairing a few rust areas on the MCI still have one to go
