My bus is 9 foot 6 inches, None of our 4 wheelers are over 4 foot tall. 13 foot 6 inches is the normal semi height.

Re: New to the board

So I have the seats all out. Insulation and sub floor mostly down. I've picked up an apartment size fridge, an apartment size gas stove with propane conversion, a stove hood with a 12 volt fan, a roof top a/c unit, an amplified TV antenna, a LCD tv and wall mount.

Now to start on the electrical system. I'm going to need an inverter/chager. I have a 50 amp service box I got off Ebay. What inverter of choice? How is wired in? Does everyone use a transfer switch? I have a generator I was going to put under the bus also. I think the 120 side scares me the most in this project.

Thanks for any help. I'll get pics up soon.

Between the 5 speed tranny and 2-speed rear end, I'm thinking the mpg you get out of that 366 should be pretty decent for a rig that size. Any figures yet?
