Re: The "Behemoth" comes to life....
Yes, that's the water heater under the E-Door, it's both propane and 120vac capable...
The floor will be insulated partially with the carpet itself, as well as underneath. Right now my main thrust is to get the thing looking presentable enough that the campground I live at will allow it in. They don't care for older rigs and home made stuff, but if it's done well enough they will let it in.
Carpeting will work fairly well as an insulator. The center part of the bus has a heated storage compartment, and the rest of it will be insulated with something between the ribs under the floor, then covered with corrogated plastic material (same belly enclosure material they used on my Travel Trailr), it has a R-value of around 5 or 6 if I recall correctly.
