My wife came up with the name brick. The cab is 37.5ft long from the front of the doghouse to the rear door. We will be using 16-17ft for hauling atvs and whatnot and using the rest for a camper. I intend to make a lay down door/ramp for loading. We haven't finalized a floorplan yet but I will upload a pic of the preliminary stuff in a bit.
The bus is a 1993 Amtran Genesis international with a dt466/allison. 80k miles. This is our first conversion and we will need lots of help. Here are some preliminary questions:
1)Generator mounting: I bought a 4k onan off ebay and cant decide where to mount it. Some of the posts have said to put it between the framerails but I fear it will catch too much dust there. What say you?
2)AC: We are looking at a 13.5kbtu heat pump. After reading the post in the other forum I am thinking about putting a small window unit in the bedroom for extra ooomph.
We will be getting as much free/used stuff as we can. This weekend we are going to Carthage, MO to a rv salvage yard to look for stuff like storage tanks and such. Here are some pics from the ebay ad:
I drove it 600 miles home, which was a saga in itself!
