I ran into a guy in Oklahoma about 10 years back that built something similar to a tiny house on a small trailer and pulled it with a farm tractor. Travelled all over the country that way. Sure didn't get anywhere too fast. I think he said he had lost his license years earlier and so that was his answer. Didn't have to have a license to drive a tractor.

I USED to get complete shoes at TRUCK PRO pretty reasonable. But I ain't bought any shoes in over 5 yrs so who knows. (our last buses had discs it was so much easier to just slip new pads in)

In our Prevost my copilot wanted her seat as far forward and low as possible to make it easier for us to talk, so we scooted it to the edge and lowered it nearly to the floor.  Then I held up a piece of plywood under her feet and positioned it where it was the best height and angle then made a platform there.  I hinged the bottom so it folds out of the way.  Works great !   It will be a couple of days before I can get pictures If you want them. 

Joe good thing it was you an not me!
I'd put a lawn chair out beside the door an had sit in it then drove off and asked how ya like it low now?

I also have the Donaldson M120131, and as Tom says it sounds good.   My bus originally had the Nelson 86121M according to my Crown Parts Catalog  -  I don't know if other there are other makes of 10" x 15" oval mufflers with 5" inlet and outlet on the same end.   The Donaldson has less back-pressure than the Nelson, and its sound attenuation is 8 to 12 dB.   If you can fit it in your MCI, it may be easier than trying to get an MCI-specific muffler.

I made my own mount because the suction cup mount was unreliable.  ..

     Nice mount.  I'm going to save that and copy it.  Thanks.

Oh heck I knew a guy way back that drove his riding lawn mower to the Bar and then drove it home about a mile but was stopped for DUI on a lawn mower and given a nice place to sleep for the night. We never let him live that one down.....

Wartsilla has an even more efficient engine. 39" bore X 135" stroke (yes over 11ft!). Runs at 82rpm. Most all engines can be modified to run on Bunker 5, Diesel 3, Diesel 2, Dual Fuel. Good Luck, TomC

Maybe with a cutting torch and welder I can put one of these in my Prevost!

I have had a number of GPS units from a number of manufactures. By far the best was a unit from Lowrance but they got out of the land GPS business. Rand Mcnalley was the worst. I really liked the Garmin Street Pilot but, like most things I like, the company no longer makes them.  I currently have a Garmin LMT760 RV and it is one of the better I have had. Large screen and mostly easy to use. I don't use the RV setting because it doesn't seem to know anything about where I am going and I don't like the pop up telling me that. Since I no longer drive a truck cross country the ability to easily see at a glance my entire two week itinerary isn't quite as important. Both the Lowrance and the Street Pilot excelled at that.

I made my own mount because the suction cup mount was unreliable.

On the list is a recliner chair for her, with the fold out foot rest.
