I like the outside view a lot, both the overall style and the details. The tubular grille for the generator that matches the shape of the front bumper is especially neat. It may be just the angle from which the first photo is taken, but it looks like your bus has a lot more ground clearance than most - it reminds me of the long-distance buses that cross the Australian outback (and they often have tubular steel on the front as well, to deal with stray kangaroos).

Dinas ride really high normally, but their Dina rides really, really high.  I believe Dina did this because the roads in Mexico sometimes require high ground clearance.

It isnt as high as it looks. The road it is parked on is not level.

When I was at your house, it sure looked a lot higher than my Dina.  It may have been partially an illusion because the Dina was parked in the yard when I visited.

Also, it was pretty empty then too. Weight has brought it down some.
