Makai the skoolie

Started this build in June of 2018. I raised the roof 18" and I am so glad I did.

Interesting approach.

Is this bus mostly stationary or will you be putting a lot of miles on it?

The metal-work transition looks smooth from the front to the raise -- I like it.

Framed bed and headboard. Closed rear window because I failed to secure it and the glass did not withstand the fall. LOL

Thanks Banman.

It will be on the road. The transition was a challenge but I think it turned out well.

Battery storage, dc power fuse block, and pre-wired to the roof for solar. Still need 2 more batteries when the budget allows.
