Nice work! I like how you did the wall insulation and have been considering a similar method myself!

Re: Jeremy's conversion project

Thank you for the pics, you got a jewel, my playwood floor is in good shape, so I willd do the same as you are doing, and again, thank you for taking the time to post your work in detail it helps., BTW, did you remove the side panels or just cover them with insulation board?

Re: Jeremy's conversion project

I like the wood framing around the windows! So what are you going to use as your final flooring?

The insulation was super easy. I didn't remove the side panels. I measured how much the lip the seats mounted to protruded from the side walls and then ripped some cedar to the same width. Screwed that at the floor and flush with the window lip. I had about 1 1/4" of space to work with. My HD only had 1/2" and 3/4" rigid foam insulation. Sandwiched together it was perfect. I made sure not to undercut them so they'd fit tight. Each set of 4'x8' was perfect to do 16' of wall. For the wheel wells I measured to the edge then matched up the sheet on the inside of the wheel well to draw the radius to cut. I put vertical cedar supports at 8' centers (or anywhere else a seam would be) to attach the paneling. I was going to go with 1/4" oak paneling but decided to go with luan since it is more moisture resistant, cheaper, and most of it will be covered. Besides, you can actually find some pretty nice grain if you are selective.

Final flooring is vinyl composition tile (VCT) same as used in schools and retailers. It's available in any color you can imagine (special order) from HD for $.79/sq ft. We finally decided on "Kickin Kiwi."

Re: Jeremy's conversion project

Started to lay things out to make sure the floor plan is going to work. It looked like it was going to be fine when I taped it out but I wanted to double check. The bed will actually be on the other side so the build out will cover the fuel filler cover. I already removed it and cut it down quite a bit before reinstalling it.

Re: Jeremy's conversion project

Decided on this rolling work bench (without the wheels) for the kitchen cabinets. Might do 2-4 more matching cabinets from this same series for other areas of the bus. There are a bunch of different cabinets some of which are available at Sam's Club (where I bought this).



Installed a sink and faucet from IKEA and a cooktop from Amazon.

Re: Jeremy's conversion project

I had been looking for a stove that wasn't too big for quite a while. This one is about 32" tall and 16 inches at the widest point. Bought it eBay but it was "pickup only." It was in L.A. and I live outside Tampa. Seller agreed to drop it off to my hotel while I was in Burbank on a business trip. I took it back to Tampa with me on the plane. It weighs about 100lbs. It went smoother than I would have thought.
