Thank you. Not sure if it's visible in the pictures but we trimmed the inside of the windows with the same paneling.

How about the vibration, weight, and mold in the bathroom?

Just a skoolie first as far as I know.

I'll be very honest in saying that we didn't put a lot of thought into a possible mold situation on the few walls we did build. We used green board around the areas that we knew would be exposed to some water (back of the sink). Definitely something for me to look into and reconsider.

As far as vibration, we've driven it with the walls up etc and don't really notice a vibration but I'm sure there some. We also believe we replaced weight and not increased weight.

First bus, first experience, always a learning experience. Our motto is "the second bus will be cheaper and faster." There's always a learning curve.

Thanks for the insight.

We finally completed our hookup of the Inverter, batteries and generator. We mounted a fuse switch that'll shut off all power to everything on the bus in the event of a malfunction with the batteries. We also mounted a second power safety feature on the exterior door. The key has to in and turned on in order for the batteries to send power to the inverter.

All of our plumbing for the bathroom has been completed as well. We are just left with putting the drain on the black tank and running the wiring from the pump.

We're getting excited about seeing the finish line.

I think you may want to install some grommets on those bulkhead cuts in the battery box. Otherwise, nice job.

We're definitely putting grommets in there. Just didn't have any at the time. Thanks for the compliment.

dry wall in a house with a 4' concrete foundation will crack let alone putting it in a moving vehicle seems like a mistake to me. I hope it works out for you. other wise i dig what you have done with it so far. keep up the good work
