Super rusty but at least it had all the seat frames. I thought about that one myself, but then smartened up.


Buseric we are already looking at buying a whole chassis..rather the [email protected] around patching multiple parts. https://classicsteelbody.com
This will be a good candidate

I have seen another walkthrough which did not have the M-code for walkthrough. It was about the same age as this one. I doublechecked everything on the bus, and it was the real deal.

I welded some angle on both sides of the axle and drilled holes to bolt through the spring plates. Luckily the whole torsion wasnít cut from it and they were still there. Iíll have to figure out how to go about repairing the frame horns since they have been cut off

How did you mount it to the bus? I know it's just to get it rolling, but you must have bolted to the trans frame horns or something.

Two inches off the ground, single axle presumably with no brakes, no side marker lights, no fenders, appears to have the axle mounted OVER the deck somehow or torsion axles?

Depending on the weight rating it may not require trailer brakes. Fenders would be good to have, but not sure if they are required by law in MN. Same goes with side marker lights.

The old photo shows the trailer with much more ground clearance. I wonder if this trailer has a kneeling axle for easier load/unload? Sort of like the nice big ice fishing houses all over MN lakes in January.


Not exactly the same, but there are several different mechanisms designed to do this.
