No, the safaris were stolen out of the bus when it was in the barn several years ago. Also stolen was the table, spare tire table mount, 1 bed cushion, etc So i am in need of those parts and more if anyone has any leads. I'll start a thread soon.

I would totally FLIP that Bomb Ass Bus to some rich Hollyweird Hosebag Celeb like Seinfeld or Leno for a Gazzillion Dollars & retire......
