Re: The Bear Den (Bug Out Bus)

Thanks to all for the relpies. REDBEAR, at first the deck area was to haul an ATV, but then we bought another, so it's trailer time for them. When the back is done, I'll have a 2'x7' fold up ramp that will hold the "mini bike".

P.S, It's freaking Freezing!!!!!!!!

PSS Hey lornaschinske, It does get warm here just not for very long.

Hey Smitster Dude, Great idea on the backer board. I think I'll go with that.

wow, just read 10 pages and did not jump ahead!


I feel like I just read a thread to no where.



pretty anti-climatic and I'm pretty disappointed to not see the end result. wanted info for the mid-door step construction, I just knew it was coming on the next page!

Did Timmy ever get out of that well?!?!?!

Well, he DID call it the Bug-Out-Bus. Maybe he bugged out?

well, since I already pulled this thread out of the depths of hell... I'll probably use it for my own research

I'm trying to picture how the mid-door steps are cut in...
I'm kinda thinking it's somewhat similar to the 4 or 5 pictures in this album
http://www.skoolie.net/forums/member...albums345.html

basically adding an open steel box, then adding the treads.
I really like the way the OP skinned over the entrance door, added a mid-doorn and then added the co-pilot's seat.
Just didn't get to see if Timmy got out of the well.

I'm finding side entrance doors from RV's in the $100 neighborhood with limited searching.

I'm going back to page 42 of "The Broccoli Bus"
I keep getting side-tracked when I start researching items within the thread.

That would drag like hell.

There is a reason the bus had the bumper at the height it was.

I do like the creativity though.

I wouldn't put steps there, it's just a representation of what they might look mid-bus.
Anything that low, behind the axle is gonna drag....
My ski boat's prop guard drags so bad, we had to put rollers on it!

I thought I was the only one who looked at his bus as a BOV against zombies.

Mid bus it in the middle of the bus, like I did on mine.

That is rear entry.

I agree on the rollers.
