It might be fun to go look at it.  If you cut the upper fiberglass off, it would make a great parade float.   Grin

About driving without top:
And if you lay triple planks of 2x12 on pavement so that 1 front wheel goes over it. Then watch the side skin’s wave somewhat.

A shoe box can give you example what bus’s skin does while going through a twist terrain. Remove and replace top while twisting the box.

Oh….about wall trusses. Cannot see if it has any. If not then another problem will occur…sagging or spring board in between wheel base with a normal payload. Every vertical wall framing will flex at belt-line (bottom) as well to roof frame to point of cracking or fatigue. And some pop-rivet inter panel will be sheared.

As always….Law of physics is for every action is a reaction.

Ps…3bid are in e**y so far.

FWIW

The only thing Renaissance about that thing is the caps. Calling it a Renaissance style coach is a bit of a stretch. Personally I think it is kinda funny looking.

LOL,

man watch out.....the free thinking society that motto is " man do it your way and love it" will come chastise you guys.

poor three soles on  ebay....if someone would only be alble to educate them.......

if any of you saw the sad looking 4107 up my way......it got sent away from who does my maint...certainly was not rust free or little rust as advertised......had damage to almot every pannel down the side.......

and these are "good" christian singing group types.......full of BS like the rest of the people selling POS buses.....

plan on being there tomorrow when the high bidder shows up to see his bargain purchase.


zThe one in FL would be interesting to be there when it folds in half when the wheel lift wrecker lifts the front wheels off the ground.......if someone is local they could probably video tape and sell it to one of those destruction video shows

Oh well, maybe we can pull on off and get it home before it collapses in two! lol! Wheel lift wrecker? What? We don't need no stink'n wrecker! Put batteries in and drive it like we stole it! (right after we insure it of course)

By the look of some of the questions the seller received, I would bet someone was having a little fun with him!  A busnut perhaps?
