Thanks to all for the kind comments re: my Prevost! Her name is "Evangeline" (my wife named her) and she is our pride & joy! The newer H3's are nice and all, but ya gotta love the shiney stainless of the older XL's!

Good luck with your bus and post some more shots (engine room pics!)

Thanks for the reply, Señor DMoedave! Here is one of the engine room, as you requested. There is only one radiator and fan, on the left. I think I have enough room to install the generator on the right.

For what its worth, a bus of this make and model in this or worse shape typically goes for between 220,000 - 250,000 pesos. (The peso is approx. 12.60 to the U.S. dollar) My friend is selling me this one for 130,000 pesos, approx. $10,340 U.S.

Well Peru and Bolivia have at least the MarcoPolo? double decker with twin steers...Not sure where they are made, Brasil I think.  I have yet to ride in one, but will try before this is done.  Would post a pic but the only thing slower than Bolivian buses in the mountains... is... Bolivian Internet....anywhere!.

**Unusual, in my opinion, BOTH air suspension AND leaf springs on all four corners.
Tell me more!   I've heard of leaf springs being cut down so only one or two leaves remain, to only act as location holders for the axle, with the actual suspension then done by airbags.   Is this sort of what your bus has?   I am thinking of adding some air helper springs or bags to my existing leaf springs, just to help level the bus.   (I will eventually have more weight on the right side, and unfortunately the left rear spring is the stiffer one;  even now my bus leans slightly to the right.)   Do your airbags have ride-height valves to compensate for varying loads, or are they a fixed pressure and firmness?

How does your MASA ride?   Does it float or jiggle over the bumps?!

I love Mexico, and my dream (eventually) is to take my bus through the country, and maybe further.   This is one reason I chose the relative simplicity and higher ground clearance of my bus.

That bus is, as we say in Texas, plum bodacious! Wink How about a couple of pictures beyond the kitchen, to the bathroom and bedroom area? Thanks in advance!
