Re: Schoolbus Homestead

Way back in the year of 2000, I purchased an 1988 Winnebago...... The front fire wall leaked air like it was a screen door.. Very cold to drive in the winter time. which we did

But after looking and seeing all the little holes for wires / cables etc
I sprayed the firewall from the engine side mostly and that cut the air flow way down. then I sprayed the area's I could see under the dash. Plus the corners where the firewall met up to the sides .
It wasn't a total success but it sure cut down the air flow coming in....... "Great Stuff" Insulation in a spray can....
might want to give it a try..

Re: Schoolbus Homestead

I LOVE the bus! I pretty much copycatted your deck design...hope you don't mind Did you leave your 4x4's at 10ft as noted in the original materials list or did you trim them up to 96'' to stay legally under the wide load regulations?

Hola! All is well here, suffering through yet another "brutal" Tucson winter.

I haven't lived in my bus for a year. Considering selling it.

Happy holidays to you & yours
Sean

Same to you! Happy new year!

You are thinking of selling the bus? You might want to hold onto for short trips or a vacation home!
