Re: Just Right Bus

I think there might be a slight problem with your door locking system. There are some folks who may think it would be really funny to lock you inside your bus. Apparently it seems to be more common in rest areas.

Also that won't keep someone semi determined out. After all both of the doors have huge panels of breakable glass in them.

Like most skoolies, we had two large eye bolts at the bottom of our door to lock it closed, from the outside, with a padlock. It was a situation we weren't happy with. When we rebuilt the 2 piece bifold door into a single piece door, I pulled the eyebolt and flipped it around so the eye was to the inside of the bus. I hook one end of one of my many ratcheting tie straps in the eyebolt and the other end is hooked to the bumper to the door is held open. I wouldn't want the light 30 mph breezes we get to blow the door shut.
This post is my opinion. It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.
