I've found some success with an app called magicplan. Very usable free, probably can do a whole bus, paid features included various file type outputs and expanded library of furniture, windows and such. I'll post my layout for an example.

Spent about an hour on this layout. However I am familiar with the app already. It's called magicplan, not sure if it's available for Apple. I use Android. I did realize you have to purchase the plan (less than$5) to export.

I need to measure where the wheel wells are but even if it falls in the doorway to the bedroom it might work. That door is currently a pocket or sliding door.
Single beds would be (3) Murphy bunks of a sort that could be designed as couches for travel use as well. Bathroom all tile for walk in shower with curtains on clothes washer and compost toilet.
Storage under bed...

Just brought home the bus last week! '82 Ford b700 bluebird retired party bus. Bus - 1st Floor.jpg

What size bed are you using? Queens and kings are 80" long, not leaving a lot of room to walk by the foot of the bed.

Good question! Probably a queen. Bed orientation is flexible. I would have to into that issue eventually. Thanks for pointing that out.

I've thought of custom making a bed... We'll see

To custom make a bed you need a foam mattress and a knife. Done!!

Might have to run the rear bathroom idea past the gf.

Yes they do.

On mattress foam yes. Talk to Robin about spray foam and electric knives.

That's a whole different subject. Spray foam is not = to memory foam.
