Raising the Roof

Hi

We just bought us a nice Bus (Coach) we would like to convert to a Motorhome. Since we need more headspace I was wondering if anyone had some good experience with a Body Builder that could do this kind of work for us. We are located close to Freo therefore should not be to fare from there.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Just make sure if you have the roof raised that each part of the frame is cut in different spots instead of all at the same place.Stagger the cuts to ensure the frames strength.If you have the cuts all in the same place around the vehicle,thats where the frame will be at its weakest. The extension will still be the same length just not all in the same spot.Check with vatious companies. You should join the motorhome club too.
