Could my shocks be the culprit? I personally don't think so but as someone mentioned above said the rear is supposed to be lower than front. I just feel like the tires should be more vertical, Not tilted either direction when bus is empty.
Thanks

You lift it via the spring plates ( lots of threads on this). I don't like the look, so I went with coil over shocks which leveled it out nicely ( cost about $150 through Summit racing)

Dead bodies and a case that needs a tear down and evaluation

Not looking too hopeful.

Jalosie best for rain. Scour the classifieds To find some.

They are rare in the UK since the Outlawed Jalosie in Wales.

A 500 lb boat plus trailer will be ok in flatlands or easy going in hills.

Turn all those toy hose clamps into pot metal and use Oetiker clamps on new fuel line when you get to the FI.

Build up a $500 pot and have Robbie or Colin spend a half-full day with you and your bus, it will save you $5000
I say bullshit to the Oetiker clamps. What a pain in the ass they are. Do get good FI clamps though and use good fuel hose. Liked the outlawed jalousies joke. Reminded me of the three ladies from Wales joke.....
