I, too, will cast a vote for it being a handle to operate the main door. My Thomas had the same handle, though it was on the right-hand side of the front. When turned it would pull down the latch near the inside handle so that the doors could be pulled open from the outside. The system was actuated with a bicycle style cable.

Hmm I'll keep that in mind. If I could get the front door to lock without the manual door opener bar thing being locked into place then I wouldn't need to climb in the emergency door to get into the bus.

I was inspired by the "How Much Does A Skoolie Really Cost" thread to try and track all reasonable expenses related to the conversion. Once I get it converted, I expect to get it moved to either a piece of land or a camping club lot where I can use it, and I will stop counting the storage as an expense of conversion.
