what is a good Mercedes bus model to convert to motor home

Postby wombatwomper » Sat Jan 19, 2019 12:33 pm

Hi every one... my friend wants to buy a bus to convert to a motor home and was wondering what the best thing to do ... I have a Mercedes 0305 that is permanently parked and she really loves the look of the older city buses but she is worried they are not reliable as they are older and not very good for traveling with no turbo. Any thoughts or ideas about what the best work around would be can the 0305 be modified to be better on the open roads and get more clearance or are coaches the best for travelling on the highways? She will also want to have the bus modified having the roof raised ...it would be awesome for any info about which states are worst or best about what can be done to modify the bus. Thank you very much for any help ... Stu

You would be better off with a high floor bus with some underfloor bin space.

O303/3 are getting a bit long in the tooth now.

A O404/3 might be a better choice?
