Re: 502 Paintball Mobile Bunkhouse

Illinois RV Requirements:

A motor home, mini-motor home, or van camper displaying Recreational Vehicle (RV) license plates must contain at least four of the following six equipment items:
1) a cooking facility with an on-board fuel source
2) a gas or electric refrigerator
3) a toilet with exterior evacuation
4) a heating or air conditioning system with an on-board power or fuel source separate from the vehicle engine
5) a drinkable water supply system that includes at least a sink, a faucet, and a water tank with a an exterior service supply connection
6) a 110-15 volt electric power supply.

We will have #1,2,4 and 6.

Also the only vehicles in Illinois that can be school bus yellow are school buses used to pick-up/drop-off students. So we must paint it.

The ex-whiffs family lives in Peoria. I can't remember which side of the river. I think the opposite side of the distillery.

Re: 502 Paintball Mobile Bunkhouse

Cool bus... I haven't played paintball in years, need to dust off everything and take my boys out...

I like that you're building it simple because of it's intended use... I've built mine the way I have for the same reasons, it'll be used as our towing/camping rig when we go offroading...

Btw, if you want an idea of what OD green will look like on your bus, take a look at mine...

Re: 502 Paintball Mobile Bunkhouse

FINALLY!! A decent day on a weekend (although they are forecasting 1-5 inches of snow tomorrow) Got the things we needed out of the old bus (beds, stove, stereo, inverter, etc.) and started removing seats from the new one.

Wow. I am in love. What is the overall length? 40'? Do you mind saying how much you paid for it? I am trying to get an idea on prices, they seem to vary a lot.

Yep, 40 feet. Paid $3500 for it from a dealer.
