For the floor I used 2" rigid foam under 1 1/2" rigid foam, so 3 1/2" in the floor. Foil side facing the interior. For the walls I did two layers of 1 1/2" and for the ceiling I'll be doing the same as the floor only with the foil facing the exterior of the bus... Seems to me alot of heat gain would come from the sun on the metal roof. The foil should help reflect some heat, that's my rational for the foil side facing out on the ceiling. I used the r-tech brand which has the foil on one side and a vapor barrier on the other.

The best option if you are planning to live in the schooly full time and in cold climates is the highest r-value you can get for a reasonable price.
So you will be doing the same as slaughridge85 with doubling up on foam board and foil?

yeap, that is the plan. The r-14 value makes even the smallest heating viable.

all primed up holes covered. The holes are covered with the wall pieces with flashing sealant and then the weight of everything push and hold down.

Got the foam and floor down. Going with the floating type floor. Used 1" foil foam on floor and walls.

So that's what we have got done. Laying out the floor plan now on the floor.

I know I saw it some were but what is the best way for bolting down seat belts say at the kitchen table? I have a couple car seats that need to have seat belts.

Also on the front door its a two piece door. were can a guy go to get a new seal for the center of the two when they close together?

Some people have fastened the two door sections together so it opens like a regular door with a handle. It's hard to find a door with good visibility and re-manufacturing your original doors, while heavy, keeps the look while allowing you to seal the door properly.
