Re: Daddy's Dog House

I am too lazy to backread at the moment... It depends on what items you still need. But I would go with items that will cost you a bit that you would rather just pick up from them instead of dropping a load of cash somewhere. Fridge, Stove/oven, AC, come to mind as being costly.

Re: Daddy's Dog House

Don't have my skoolie yet but I've done bunks in class A and ugh... For us it was a toss up, easier walk space or more sleeping width. We deciding sleeping comfort was far more important than having to turn side-ways to walk through an ilse. Ours are 33" wide (supports and all) and 7' long. Testing them out in the house for a month (kids love that) shows this is decent and gives enough room for turning during sleeping and plenty of foot room to push covers and sleeping bags to end of bed if things get too warm. We've four beds, two bunks btw.

Re: Daddy's Dog House

If and when I ever get a bus, I definitely want bunk beds on each side of the aisle for my two boys and a pair of friends. My thought is to built them such that at night they can be pulled out (cantilevered) somewhat like a drawer. Depending on the mattress (I am thinking foam); it could be pushed up the side wall during the day.

I have not put pen to paper, but another derivation might be to put (removable) supports all the way across, and pull out a platform to support a mattress and have a very large sleeping surface, say if other adults were to tag along( I am thinking top bunk for this idea).

I will try and get you some measurements of my layout in the next couple of days. I have the exact same bus you have. My bathroom is a split/pass through design. In other words, shower on one side of the bus and sink and toilet on the other.


Left side front to back:
dinette booth
counter space
Refrigerator
Bunk beds
shower
wardrobe
Master bedroom

Right side front to back:
couch
counter/sink/stove top
pantry/furnace
broom closet
wardrobe
toilet/sink
wardrobe/storage
master bedroom

It is all just in tape and subject to change.

Re: Daddy's Dog House

I would do the bunks just a little over 6 feet.
