Re: New member Bus/Toy Hauler build

That favors our bus except ours is International and a shorty '24ft' . We painted ours fleet white a couple years ago . Looks like a prison bus so nobody messes with us, lol.

We were going to just use it for base coat then we thought why customize and look like we got something somebody might want to take [ its begining to be madmax out there now ] , so we just left it white .

Re: New member Bus/Toy Hauler build

Boy, kids do have the craziest ideas, don't they? My 15 year-old was the one who came up with our bus idea, after looking at several over-priced enclosed trailers for our bikes. And then, you have nowhere to sleep. When I found out how cheap it was to get a bus, that became my priority. Am currently converting an '85 GMC 65 pax bus to a toy hauler/RV. I don't know what your plan is for the back, but we are going to put Herculiner down from the wheel wells all the way to the back door. When the bikes are out, we will have fold down bunks for our sleeping area back there. Welcome, and keep the pictures coming - I will be watching for what you come up with next!

After looking at Double Duces bus,I think I'll take the rub rails off the side of the bus.I have plenty of paint left,and it needs a second coat.

Re: New member Bus/Toy Hauler build

I like how you used the interior panels to cover the windows, very economical solution.

I wonder if high power earth magnets could be used to attach the panels, to make them like removable shutters....

Anyway nice job!

Re: New member Bus/Toy Hauler build

...Can you get away with putting a prison's name down the sides? Nobody would go near it then.
