On another site it was mentioned that the "Toterhome" built on the Freightliner Class 8 chassis was of FRP construction.
This is exactly why Transport Designs http://www.transportdesigns.com/
built my Truck Conversion. No FRP for me. Mine is 1-1/2" x 1/8" wall tubing on 16" centers. Aluminum skin riveted on the outside and plywood on the inside. The floor is 3" x 3" box tubing 24" on center. The roof, walls, floor and belly boxes are all one integral piece of construction.
Even though we drive or have driven buses we must remember we are driving a big heavy vehicle that does not handle
like a car, nor does it stop
like a car. We must drive at a speed that is comfortable for us and dependent on road and weather conditions. Don't let the surrounding traffic make you drive in such a manner that you are not in control.
We need to pray for the families involved in this crash. What a loss. And, yes I heard the driver was 17.
