Re: 13 fun steps to a skoolie and a toad!

Excellent work! Was the 13 steps an actual reference to 13 years??

Re: 13 fun steps to a skoolie and a toad!

More like 13 cases of cheap scotch . 6 that got me into all this, 6 that got me back out and one to celebrate Honeysuckle Rose's "completion". Just kidding. It was actually 3 yrs on the bus and about 1 year on the woodie--too much fun! I'd do it again in a heartbeat! Jack

Tango, did you have any luck at Home Depot? We were told that the S 110 Shed Windows were no longer available for order through Home Depot. They did tell us about some pre-fabbed vinyl windows that will fit our openings, but really want to make sure whether or not the powder coated aluminum ones are available.

Re: 13 fun steps to a skoolie and a toad!

Hey GM --- I have decided to go with custom made RV windows. The way my bus is structured I think I'll be better off with windows that have the full clamp ring type mount. Will be much easier to seal. Prices are all over the place but Peninsula beat the other big name by more than half price wise. They built the tricky window for my home made door and the quality was top notch. And given I only need four, it won't break the bank. Well, not completely anyway.
