Owning a DD bus is not so bad, our 78 Model VRT can go anywhere a Semi truck can go, has over 300 Square feet of usable floor space and 100 sf of shelf/stowage space. It would make an ideal mobile restaurant. We were contacted by a food truck manufacturer a little while back about purchasing it to convert into a food truck. You could have a upstairs dining area and downstairs food prep stations. We originally had plans to use this for a Wine tasting tour bus in our town, but alcohol and moving vehicles are not a good prospect for us at this stage. We’re selling our bus right now under 30K. If you do go with a DD bus, just be sure to self educate yourself with service manuals and parts houses in England. It’s not that hard, it took me 30 days, but I finally found people in London that can get me any part I need and local mechanics can perform any work that I don’t want to tackle myself. Top speed is 42MPH for us and thats because the engine is governed by RPM. This isn’t something you want to drive 1000 miles at a time, these buses were designed for local commuter traffic, starting up steep hills from a dead stop. We got lucky to have a good engine and transmission, the exterior part was the hardest because it’s like having to work on a two story house on wheels! Cheers~
Just figured out how to edit videos and put to some decent music 😉
