I jsut got my latest copy of Bus Conversion smag and read teh centerfold on the moosecreek coaches.  Mike, you have done a really nice job on it.  I like it much better than your first efforts with the MCI 9's.  I think you've improved with the fit and finish, and the design as well.  Nice work!

I'll second Jim's quote.

Nice layout and finish work.  There's something about theese Mooses that are comforting.....

The 102 body really fits the bill nice too.

Hi All,

As the proud owners of the Moose cabin #1 (MC9) , I can say after about 2 years now, that we have really enjoyed it beyond what even I thought was possible.  When we have hosted large or small groups in our bus, there's always lots of amazement at how fun and "comfortable" the cabin layout is.  No - I don't get a comission for saying that!!!  It's just our Moose Cabin experiences.

But I do like the 102 look.  Mighty sleek looking!  Guess I'll just re-cap ours!   ;D  ;D

Best Regards, Phil

I think it looks Great!

Clean lines, open feeling, not too dark inside, adaptable floor plan.....

And to paraphrase Nick " there is something comforting about them"

It is a really cool conversion......Very practical, easy to keep up, clean lines, warm appearance.  I have always admired the moose lodge look. It actually has a "theme" that helps in decorating.

 I was just in a Vantare Prevost H-3, Monday of this week, that they followed the Log Cabin concept........The cost is only $1,258,350.

Phil 2 suggestions!
# 1) Tell her that it's a Demo that MAK is letting you use while yours is getting the same new caps put on, or
#2) Tell her MAK is giving it to ya'll for all the hard work you do on the board here!

Probably easy to see why I ain't married huh!? BK ;D

Hahaha !!   ;D  ;D Those  are good.

Hey Knuckle - can you back me up on those ?!!  Ha ha HA!!

The only problem is a bus is such a HUGE thing to hide!!!  It already looks INSANE by the side of our house.
