Everyone will look into window, or play their tablet, or watch tv, or whatever... If somebody is tired, we will stop in safe place and take a rest.
BTW It will take a few seconds to deploy at least kitchen side and have much more room to move around. I will use hydraulic cylinders and electric solenoids to control slide outs.
I fully agree with your statement above - that's what it is all about, really.
However, you didn't answer my question: Is the bus "functional" with the slides in??
I fully understand, that this is NOT the preferred way to operate The Bus, and you certainly would want to pop out the slides whenever you stop.
My question is geared more like to "undesirable" situations, which you just couldn't avoid:
Traffic Jams (landslide, flood, any number of occasions) - situations you certainly would avoid IF YOU KNEW!
Any situation, where you CANNOT or do not want to pull the slides out.
...is your bus still functional? Can you squeeze through to the bathroom and bed-room? Is the kitchen workable, dito the living room?
OR is there NO WAY to use the bus without sliding out?
