None of the previous links are live. Can anyone direct me to options for converting to a wider rear door for motorcycle storage. I'm wanting to do a short 6-7' shop at the back with a hard wall and door up to the RV section.

I've seen that done once to accommodate inflatable river rafts.

Are you sure a wheel chair lift wouldn't work well for that. My garage is in the rear 6' of the bus and the chair lift insures I don't have unhappy attempts at getting the bike through the back door.

Anyway to answer your question the widened rear entry that I saw was done by cutting out the driver's side portion of the rear wall, including the window. That section of wall was hinged so it could swing open opposite of the original rear door making about a six foot wide entry. From what I understand the biggest problem was they had trouble sealing airflow on that rear wall section.

I just had a thought, cut off the back 6" of a front wrecked van and weld the door assembly to the rear of the bus. Takes care of the wind sealing issue. Wheel lift might work, but would need to accommodate 5' wheelbase and would add a bunch of weight.
