Re: Church Bus

So I must admit I am not a huge fan of the RV door One of the whole reasons I started the bus conversion process was because of how poorly RV’s are made. This is proving true with the new door as well. I don’t feel confident in its design or the level of security it offers. Even though it means A LOT more work….I’m contemplating cutting a house door and putting some hinges up on the frame I already have in place……

Wow, you are a more motivated man than I. Once I get a job like that done, it's done, second thoughts be damned!

Re: Church Bus

I almost got rid of my bifold, but it's air operated and the kids think its the coolest thing ever. My wife even loves it, so it stays, haha. Anywho, the install at least looks good! Leaving it for a while is a good idea, it helps you gauge how much it will bug you

My bus has air activated front door as well. When I first got the bus, I played with it for quite awhile. It reminded me of the sound the doors would make on Star Trek.
