I find mine excessively loud for the heat it puts out.
A 1500 watt ceramic heater makes the same heat, costs less, and is quieter.
I've definitely decided to keep the current heating system. I also believe that I no longer have a problem with the coolant system.

Here are a few pictures of some of the updates we've made. The bathroom is 85% complete. We had limited room when it came to installing a sink so we had to become creative. Our sink is actually a cake/brownie pan that we bought from a nearby home store.

The light fixer is a bit large but we'll use a very low watt bulb so no one gets blinded.

We've also ran the wiring and installed our panel boxes. We're going to use an electric fireplace to help with warming the interior when the bus isn't running. We hooked it up and within 15 minutes it put out enough heat to warm the back of the bus. Hasn't been that cold here but still!!

It's been a while since I last posted but I thought I'd share our progress and where we are currently. The weather is definitely impacting some of the things that we still have left to do. We've hung 95% of our drywall around the bathroom and lift area but because of the cold weather the muddying is taking some time. We even want to sound proof the bus but the instructions says it has to be a certain temperature in order to apply correctly. We aren't expecting any warm weather any time soon so that's on old. Here's the pix.

Nice progress pics.

Why in the world would you use drywall in a bus?

I hate having that crap in my house, let alone a bus.

Not high enough. LOL It's only 6'2" because of the step up. We'll have futons mounted in for sleeping. It isn't quite an RV nor party bus. The thought process when designing it was to incorporate a little bit of both.

It gives us a cleaner look in and around the bathroom and lift.
