Hi Larry, Welcome to the 'bussin world!
FWIW, get one of the ex-NJTs and you don't have to dink with restroom removal.
There are a good many coaches used for shuttle and commuter routes that didn't have restrooms.
Finding a restroomless bus may be tedious...?
If you buy from a dealer, they'll often remove the RR for a fee. May be worth what they charge?
Jerry, you are going to need that restroom during your trip back to the Left Coast! You found any co-pilots yet? May I volunteer Kyle and Jon since they already have firsthand experience driving your bus!
