Default Bus Lift

Hi John Finn,

Do you think Twin Oaks Campground could install this four post lift for our next Rats Rally ???? Free shipping , What a deal...
Or possibly at the Maxton Laurinburg Airport.

But it couldn't lift many of the newer/wide body models. I note that my coach weighs about 48,000 lbs when it's packed and road-ready.

Wouldn't the lift be a trifle difficult to haul around?

Not to mention unpacking your coach so it could be lifted.

CCW has a 6-tower lift rather like the HoistTech model. They used it to lift my coach when I was in Riverside for a service earlier this year.

I note that it is quite a sight to see your coach being lifted up into the air.

There must be enough $$$ in the donut/coffee kitty, surely there is room in your trailer.
