    Anybody using a converted School Bus for a tow rig? I am thinking about buying one and converting it to a tow rig/camper. Also does anybody know what is needed to reregister one as a RV? If you have any pics plese post them too. TIA.

    A friend converted a shorter RTD-type bus. It's a HUGE amount of work and expense. If that's what you really want you're far better off to find one already done.
