  1. First time poster. I’m hoping to get a bit of insight from those with conversion experience, for a business I’m starting up. I’m currently converting a double decker bus (Volvo B7TL) to deck it out as a shop. I’m interested in how much power I would need to light and heat the thing, and the best way of getting an external power supply. The bus was powered by two twelve volt batteries, but my intention is to set up an external supply. We will need to power: - Inbuilt lighting (standard fitting) - Already fitted CCTV - Already fitted bus heating - Electronic devices (lap-top, IZettle electronic till, 32 inch TV screen, 3-4 small electric devices, e.g - cameras, battery charges for IPhones’ and camera batteries) I want to know if a domestic power supply will be enough to power it all, and if anyone could give me a rough idea of what the wattage would be? And how / how easy it would be to wire it all together? The bus will be static. Would also be great to know how much solar energy I would need, and any advice about setting that up. Any feedback would be most helpful, so thanks in advance for your responses.
  2. Interesting how age affect the value. Years not miles seems to determine the value. How many miles or years is too much for a Class Diesel pusher? If schedule maintenance is followed what would you feel about a bus with 400k on it? What would make it a buy? What would not make it a buy?
  3.

  4. Hi there, I am new to this and a female so I don't know much about engines. Hubby and I are looking at a 1965 8V71 with a 4 speed Allison transmission. Electric shift (not sure what this means though?). It was rebuilt less than 10K ago. He is handy and an aircraft mechanic by trade but knows nothing about diesels or RVs for that matter. I am sure he can work on it no problem, but we just want to know what we are getting into. How reliable can we expect this to be? I have read that they all burn oil. How much? Most ads mention how many miles "since last rebuild". How often does it need to be rebuilt? What is the general maintenance for these things? I've done a ton of research but can't seem to find anything about these items. I know that all engines have "bad years". Does anyone know if 1965 was a good year? Is there any advice that anyone could add about inspecting this thing? I'm detailing a list, but don't want to miss anything big. Are brakes an expensive or hard job? Hubby does our brakes- so I'm guessing he could do these no problem? Thank you in advance!
