The base as a whole got BRAc'ed from Jersey. There are MANY people still butthurt over that. It happened in 2008/09 I think? You've worked here for 6, 7 , 8 yrs now. Get the hell over it.

The low level kids aren't all from Jersey but they all act like the Jersey princess. They didn't get beat enough as children. It's not boundries they are pushing; it's buttons they are pushing. And they are being told it's ok because management refuses to manage.

We'll have a meeting and discuss it. <--- Bullsh1t, suck it up buttercup and quit being a wuss.

If a critter is sea sick, does it make butter milk instead?

Hello! This is 'the Wife' actually...
So, ShagNasty wants to build the bus just for us.
I want to be able to sleep grand kids, or other company at times.
Needless to say, we do not have a meeting of the minds

Ok, I say we tiny house trick this thing!
Being a smaller bus, how we use space is critical. We do know we will have some 'garage space', composting toilet, solar panels, hopefully a wood burning stove, shower/tub, kitchen sink, stove/oven, refrigerator/freezer, counter, dining/entertainment area... I believe those are the most key components.

What ideas do you have to add magic bed space?
I've read some good ideas on here; what has worked for you? What didn't work? Tricks for 'hiding' a bunk under a cabinet with drop down for actual use? or any other thoughts and tricks?

I'm with Shag and Ben Franklin; relatives and fish start to stink after 3 days. Your bus has wheels and runs? There's no good reason family should be able to find you.

Sleeping bags, ... under the bus. The biggest kid gets the spot that doesn't drip oil.

Not sure if this is the right place for this but I have a question about floor plans

I donít have a bus yet but I want to plan the layout is there a major difference between different busses that would make this a waste of time ?

Depends on how far you plan on stripping the original bus. Some have A/C plumbed along floor lines and walls. It's easiest to build what you want when starting with a big empty box. Then the only difference in floor plans is length, as much as 20' depending on a shorty or a 40'er. whether RE or FE determines useable build out at the rear.
Draw a rectangle that depicts 7.5' wide, layout what you want in your bus and that will determine what length bus you need.

I plan to buy a dog nose with the max length from bumper tp bumper to be 30' so we can go to any R/V park or boondock and not be kicked because we are too long. I will build a wall for a 2' garage, on the other side a murphy bed that when up is a table or desk. Queen size we hope open horizontal because of the height of the bus. I am 6' so I need a a tall center of the bus. So any floor plans in sketch up helps. I will try to draw the rectangle later today and see how it goes.
