You know, once I hit Colorado, I think I WILL take the food off the sides. Great idea! ;)

We want to solidify our plans that way after removing the seats and flooring. I think our measurements will be by the window, rather than by the foot.

Measuring by window is the way I'm going too... starting with the bedroom, then I'll be putting closets and storage over the wheel wells.... And I'll just keep working my way up to the front. I'm going by window because I don't want to halfway block any of them. When I first got the seats out I used masking tape and got a general idea. Then I decided where I wanted the shower to go and worked around that. So, I basically know what I want, now let's see if I can make it happen 😃👍

Might sound silly but make sure all your windows are the same. Mine (and a lot of other Blue Birds at least) are NOT the same. I have 25 inch and 32 inch. Not even all the emergency windows are the same. The emergency door is in a 25 inch row as well.

The very first window on the driver and passenger sides are both a couple of inches larger from the rest. Otherwise all of them are 27". I think the first Windows are 31".

Anyone using an mobile app to create floor plans? I've dabbled in a Sketchup, but I think the learning curve will be too much for me.

Hate it with a passion. Even after watching the videos online. I used Visio. NO idea if they have a phone app tho. It will convert to damn near anything tho.
