Re: New Member 1987 Blue Bird

Really nice bus! very well done and I also concur with the open floor plan up front. We have ours that way right now but mostly because we have to live in her and I've been focusing on the bedroom/bath area.

I like the different wood colors, nice contrast.

1987 Blue Bird Conversion

so my most recent upgrades to my conversion was to install a cruise control, so far that was successful I installed the cruise king 2500RV it was very easy to install once I layed it all out. Then we built a ladder system on the back of the bus to gain access to the top, we had to make a split ladder because of the engine compartment door so the bottom of the ladder hangs by hooks from the bottom of the top half, when we don't use it it stores away in the under storage bay area under the bus ill get a pic of that on here soon. Next I want to replace the tires I hope to get this done this summer. Thats all I have for now good luck to all of you on your projects its been great to see all the different styles that everyone has done...

Re: New Member 1987 Blue Bird

It is good to see your progress. We all have different visions of what we want for our big yellow (or formally yellow) obsessions. I have also come to the conclusion that it will never end. Just when I think I have made a firm decision, someone posts a new idea or does something neat that I had not thought of, and I am back to the drawing board. Thank you for the updated posting. Happy New Year!
