Clifford I fish the coast all the time when the surf drops.  The trout and reds get in there thick.  I wouldn't be scared to drive the bus on wet sand but I can't ever find it.  We go to San Luis Pass on the south tip of Galveston and I can barely get a 4 wheel drive Excursion onto the beach, with a running start.  Are there any rv parks left on Boliver after Ike?  My sister in-law evacuated from Boliver.  There was very little remaining upon her return, maybe a piling here and there.  Hollar if you know of a good rv park over there, maybe farther up to Crystal Beach.

  I read it all, but have some questions...

  Okay the road sucked, I get that. But how would bottoming out the suspension bend the air bag support?? Just trying to follow the chain of events here, hard to imagine bottoming wasnt considered when they built the Bus?

  You said the Bus was heavy, care to share what its running??

  Mine is not only going on a weight loss program, the conversion work will be considered with weight being the number one priority. Weight effects everything, load on structure, load your pushing up hill (makes heat, burns excess fuel), load your stopping, load the tires carry and make heat supporting, and loads over bumps. Balance falls in there somewhere too, fore and aft, port and starboard. Not good to put all your heavy crap on one side, lol.

  I always considered road service as the last resort, I think they all suck. I keep them for backup and will only call when im out of options. Also probably good to play dumb, the more you tell em the worse it gets. You probably would have lucked out better saying you dont know whats wrong, looks like blown air bag, they woulda just sent a low boy, lol.

BCO,

There is a shop right there in El Reno that has been building stuff for my projects for years!

....But it is a little hard (or easy depending on your point of view) to get a factory tour!!! Grin Grin  It appears to be an extremely high security facility that provides work opportunities to convicted felons!! Shocked

They make heavy duty pallet racking for the US GOV't.  Too bad they can't do private work!
