    Laugh at him all you want but we hvae a guy in Mooresville that uses a school bus as a moble machine shop,sharpens blades, welds,general fix it stuff. If you can manuver it and make it look profesional go for it.

    I would say that it sits up too high. It would look really silly. For the extra money, buy a enclosed trailer.
  6. I don't know- Maybe paint it green and go for it. Sure enough you'll get attention and everybody is going to know who you are.

    I drive a school bus. They are too big, too heavy, require a CDL to drive, and where do you plan to park them? My customers do not want too see a bus in front of their house. They also require at least 3 to 4 parking spaces. Our school district just sold 6 old bus for $6000. Why, because of the expensive upkeep. Did I forget the 5 mpg. No way, give my a trailer.
  8. several years ago there was a article in Pro magazine about a company in Louisville, Ky. that had a bus and modified it for his company's use, looked good and worked for him.

    I'm not saying this to put you down, but I think it would look
    like the Beverly Hillbillies were coming to town.
