We got the carpet in the back room, complete with proper underlay. It looks good and is comfortable to walk on. I found a tent sale at a local furniture retailer and picked up a brand new mattress for the bed, now it is more comfortable than our bed in the house! (Need to go buy one of those I suppose). We took it out for a long weekend trip and everything worked out perfectly. Furnace keeps it nice and warm in the night. The water flows great, no water leaks anywhere except the end of the sink drain out the bottom of the bus due to me not having a holding tank yet.
Overall, feels quite comfortable and getting to be more like home every time I do a little more work.
Today I ordered my fresh water tank from a local manufacturer. Its going to be a 345L (64.8 US Gal) tank. That should give us plenty of water for our trips to the mountains. I ordered my black water tank from a company in Manitoba. Its a 39 US Gal tank, I figure that's more than enough crap to haul around.
I am putting off getting a grey water tank for now because I can't find one that fits where I want it to go that uses the space efficiently. They are either too short and only hold 20 US Gal or they are too narrow or odd shaped. I need to find one that is deep and fits the space. For now I will just plumb in a cutout on the grey line so I can divert it to a drain hose instead of the black tank. Otherwise it will just add to the black tank and get dumped with the crap!
I also pulled out the awning that I acquired two years ago. It's a 16 foot Dometic Sunchaser awning. It was on my father-in-law's fifth wheel trailer (yes, the one he replaced my bus with
). He had a small accident and ended up getting a brand new awning through insurance. All I need to do is repair a couple small tears in the awning fabric, and replace one arm. I went to a local RV stealership and found a complete used arm for a decent price. So now I just need to decide whether to put the awning all the way forward so it covers the door, or start it just back from the door and cover more windows with it.
