Hi Clifford,

Yea, I saw the button but, I'm not too sure how it works yet. Some practice will be good....

One more thing.. As my wife and I are laying here in bed and listening to the Roof Warts cycle,

it remined me why I installed basement [quiet air] units. We are playing TV volume game. When the

airs come on, the volume goes up. when they turn off, I get yelled at by my wife.. TURN THAT TV DOWN, IT'S TOO LOUD!! >:(

LMAO

Nick,

You need to carry CD's, and give out business cards. Then you need to proceed to wear your sunglasses (cool dude glasses), all of the time (rain or shine), and not shave for a couple of days. Then you would have the look. Oh, yes. You also need to come up with a "name" for your group....Then you are set ;D ;D ;D

God bless,

John

Hi John,

I really didn't need my sunglasses....

How much cooler can you get when you have an H2 Hummer trailing in the shaddows of an H3-45!

It was a GREAT week away in VA Beach. The Holiday Travel Park was so relaxing and spot on with their super sites..

Oh,

Both the Cape May Ferry and the Bay Bridge/Tunnels had signs that said 13'6"... So is the Prevost!

Yes, I scraped the top of the Penguins on both.. No big deal, just scrapes!

Too bad about the scrapes.

I agree, I can hear the gasps, and the exclamations. "Incredible, look at that bus, and WOW it is pulling a Hummer! Those people must have HAD some real money!" LOL I know what you mean.

Glad you had fun.

God bless,

John

A quick check of some Hummer specs lists the over all length at 189.8 inches.  So I guess that means the H3-45 was pulling an H2-16    ;)

That is such a neat trip.  We did it on Christmas Day last year.  Got the bus out of Luke's shop at 6:00 on Christmas Eve, spent the night on a parking lot in Cape May and then ran down the coast on Christmas.  That bridge is amazing.  There must have been some farmboys on the construction crew cuz there's no way even a whole herd of engineers could have come up with that.

Easter Bus Sales was doing a roof raise on an H3 back when I bought my Dina.  I always thought an H3 was tall enough as it stood.

The higher the Hummer Number, the lower the Hummer, unfortunately!  Now a H1 Hummer is a cool beast!

On the VIP Prevost motor home shell the floor is lower and has smaller baggage bays
I saw several H series with raised roofs not the way I would go but some do.
They are air sensitive even roof tops cause problems without the fairing around the top Some owners disagree but  Prevost recommends the fairing for a small amount of cash LOL   



good luck

Unfortunately the vehicle shown in that link isn't an H1 but an H2. The H1 and H2 are two very, very different vehicles, built by different companies
