Just watched it. Good stuff!! You have the exact same year and model as we have. Ours is named "Gimel" (Hebrew for "camel") from Psalms 119:17-24.

Fascinating to watch! Question: do you find the original bus windows an A/C sink/heat sink depending upon the time of year? Due to financial constrictions we may have to re-purpose our emergency windows and save two original windows to save $$$. We're coming up with alternatives to help us when we're parked.

Thanks for the info!

The original windows are not the ideal thing but they are not horrible. I left many of them and later covered some on the inside just to help with heat/cool retention.

Didn't you list the windows and lack of roof raise as things you wish you'd done differently?
Thought I read that on your blog.

Yes, for sure. That is why I mentioned that they are not ideal. BUT if you have stock windows there are some ways to make them better. This is what I did to cover some of mine on the inside. It really helped with heat & A/C and it looks great. Interior Window Covering
