One thing. Is this for fulltiming or weekending? One person or two? The reason I ask is because climbing across another person to get in/out of bed gets really old, really fast when you have to do it day in, day out. Especially if you have the flu and you are the one having to climb over someone to make a semi fast desperate dash for the bathroom. We disliked it so much that we put an island bed in our bus. After 5 years of climbing over, I decided to "fix" that problem. I'm too old to continue doing that.
My goal is to fulltime, with just myself (for now).

I am interested in procuring a dog-nosed bus for the exact reasons to mentioned - increased floorspace, and two less wheel wells to deal with. Plus, dog-nosed buses are easier to work on and quieter inside, as I understand it. If I do end up finding a flat-faced bus that I love, I will need to adjust this design accordingly.

Your point about the position of the bed is a good one, and one I had not considered.Though I am single now, if I were to find Ms. Right, I would rather not have to remodel the bedroom to make it more functional. I am going to revise my design using your suggestions. Thank you!

502 paintball mobile bunkhouse.
The grid things are overhead storage. The semi-transparent blocks are overhead cabinets. All beds are 2 high bunks.


Sketch-up views without the overheads and the details are a little different.

Re: Conversion Encyclopedia - Floor Plans

If I had a full sized bus (71 passenger) this is what it would look like. Not sure how practical it is given wheel wells, but oh well!

Floor plan ideas!

hello all. I'm getting together a good game plan for my bus (future). I was thinking I have seen bus floor plans in various build threads but they are spread out and intermittent. I thought it would be neat if they were all consolidated on one thread. It would be a big help for guys like me that haven't been on a bus regularly since freshman year almost 20 years ago. So if you see this and don't mind posting your floor plans again......thanks!

Re: Floor plan ideas!

Here is my latest layout. I need to update because I made a few changes, like reversing the toilet and shower. I have a 1999 34' rear engine Thomas. I'm single so I don't have a dinet, instead I have a computer desk so I can work while traveling.

Re: Floor plan ideas!

Here is the three page thread that already covers this topic.
viewtopic.php?t=95

This thread needs to be migrated into the other one. I will contact Sarah about it.

No problem. I have noticed a increadable amount of the same questions being asked in new threads, multiple threads for the same topic, ect.

For the sake of being able to search and find stuff, I have started working with the mod's to clean the site up a bit.

Also Google works far better than the search on this forum. As Jatzy pointed out, type in your search words, followed by "skoolie.net, and you will get much better search results.
