In WA, OR, and CA emergency exits in the roof have been part of the minimum spe'c for more than 20-years.

I suppose I made the wrong assumption the spe'c was standard on all buses.

The roof hatches that can be opened as ventilators is such a nice thing to have I just couldn't imagine anyone not ordering them.

But when one is trying to get something in for the lowest cost, anything that isn't required becomes an unnecessary expense.

those hatches almost always end up leaking in heavy rain.. so I think they only get ordered if they are required as emergency exits..

this is a kickASS bus!!!! im loving this build out!!

...Well my parts didn't show up, snowed in. Maybe tomorrow I'm told, and now it's snowing again.

I did get some hub and nut covers to finish off the rims.
