How did you ship the suspension parts?


The suspension was shipped in the container with the bus and the rest of our household goods.

Aha, yeah that makes sense, I think that indeed is the cheapest way to do it.
Thanks.

Dropped the bus off at Rainer's Garage in Sprendlingen for the TÜV inspection Tuesday.
I left it there so they could address a few issue and it looks like I will have TÜV papers by the end of next week!
They are being VERY, VERY helpful!

One step closer!

Looks like a nice turnout for a small town.

What a great shot! I think Gas Burners make a bus look like a regular guy wearing a designer tuxedo. Classy but approachable.

Wow nice pictures, the ones in the States and in Germany as well. Sounds like a cool adventure but you did it backwards, most UT buses were used in Germany then shipped to the States. Yours was shipped to the States then shipped back to Germany, a perfect circle. Very Happy

I'm a little late to this party, but just wanted to give a shout. The bus looks awesome Wayne.

It reminds me that I have to get out and DRIVE my bus more often!
