Re: the akitabus



I don't know if a pocket door is the best idea, but we really did not want a door that opens in the conventional way for obvious reasons... there just is not enough room unless the door is facing back or front, opening out into hall was just not going to work.

That is why we are going with a folding door. They are vinyl/PVC and we will use one for the "shower curtain", one for the toilet area door and one to divide off the bathroom from the galley/front of the bus. Because our shower opens out into the hallway that leads to the bedroom, I may add another door to close off the 63" section because it will help hold the heat in from the CAT heater while taking a shower. At $27 its pretty cheap and takes up very little room.

Re: the akitabus

That T connector at the showerhead , if it is zinc attached to copper you may have a problem with galvanic currents in the future.

Re: the akitabus

And it is in.

Re: the akitabus

Rub rails with caps, installation compete.

Next I started on putting vented windows in the back. I hadn't worked on the bus for awhile and in my haste I cut for the back windows as if they were square... DUH

good thing you can glue metal back together... it just added about 2 hours to the process.

window in.
