Mmmmm... air bags.... jealous!
Yeah, I haven't even started a build thread. Actually I haven't done much to this bus either. It has been impressed on my mind that I really really need insulation. This many windows really sucks the heat up during the cold spells and I'm not sure the OEM insulation is effective at all. I'll test that theory when I get all the panels and insulation out, right before I insulate the begeebees out this thing.

Jeez Louise that sounds scary! Tell us that you're not really trusting your air bags to not crush your head or chop it off. Get a jack; you'll find uses for it.

I have been told I have a hard head so I should be good...... I only checked under there when I bought the bus. Never stuck my head in to far just enough I could see the wells good. Any work I need to do in there it will be raised then blocked. I try to be as safe as I can.

I used the 1" tin foil foam. That made a big difference from what was in there. Shrunk down the # of windows and Blocked out 8 and will insulate those as well.

these busses have Lots of heaters.. at least mine does. . 6 heaters i think...

im not sure why people dont just leave their Bus heaters intact and then make a small boiler to heat the loops when the bus isnt being driven... even can make a small wood fired boiler so theres no big ole smoky wood stove inside... ..


what are air bags on a bus?

After hearing from some full timers in a school bus, I almost think its a necessity.
