Re: Linus the 1992 Ward Senator

Make sure the seat isn't too high for copilot...wifey say I need to lower it about 3inches so she can "see higher" out of windshield

She is tall tho...just a heads up

Or you will be cutting it down like me this spring....maybe...she's getting a toilet first

Re: Linus the 1992 Ward Senator

You're not going to have access from the living area to the workshop?

Re: Linus the 1992 Ward Senator

Bansil: Yeah I think we might take the current mounts out from under the seat and attach the seat its self to the bus frame, but we'll see. My Wife is the one who wants the seat up that high....but like you....i might be modifying later......

sdwarf36: No we won't have access to the workshop via the living area, doing so we would lose some usable space....we might regret it.....we'll use the rear exit door for the entry to the workshop.

Re: Linus the 1992 Ward Senator

As someone who has a shop in the back- yes you will regret it. First time you go around a corner and here smash from behind the wall. "WTF was that?" And have to stop to go round out back to check out what it was. I have a pocket door between. Besides making the shop a place to throw stuff while driving down the road (out of sight), a simple "did I latch the cabinets?" doesn't require a rest stop.
