Cool, I can't recall seeing that before.

I have seen a Bus before with that sort of A/C on the rear roof though.
I believe it was Velvet Green so a different Bus

There's a bus pending in the classifieds right now with one one those A/Cs, but not included.

I messaged the original poster on FB about how cool it actually got the bus and how much it reduced the buses power. It apparently did a fair job keeping the occupants cool but did rob some badly needed horsepower.

With all that stuff on the roof rack in front of it, the a/c system probably didnít get much ram air through the condenser while under way.

Yup. That velvet green bus with the AC like that is mine. There was a 21 or 23 in the classifieds years back that had it, and Bigdish just sold a bus that had it as well. He took all the AC stuff off of it before it sold.

I'm assuming that's the condenser mounted up on top in that scoop and I don't think it's getting a whole lot of air flow over it with all that stuff piled on the roof rack. Hope this pic was taken in the winter

I wonder if this picture is related to the Econowash bus? If so, I wonder if this is downtown Eugene or Drain, OR?

Edit: My apologies to the fine citizens of Eugene! lol

I was thinking it was Eugene, Oregon, Home of University of Oregon.


Here is Baker's Boots in Eugene, OR, run by Bill Baker's son, evidently:
