not yet.. My bus got delayed again so i dont have it here yet to play with...
the gist of it is a dinette style.. 2 school bus seats facing each other.. a table in the middle that can be lowered to bus seat level.. I'll toss a couple sleeping bags across and instant cot..
then I can raise up the table to perhaps varying heights to use as work space / table.. the table would flush with the seats so its width would be that of the area between the seats.. have a hevy enough stand that it doesnt buckle when I crawl onto it and the seats for sleep..
I may buld a couple hinged "leaves" that hinge out into the seating area during the table's "Table mode". I ook at how my body feels comfortable while working.. and its sitting close to the table. . so in the raised mode the table overhangs the seats.. but in "bed" mode that can happen so id fold under the leaves and secure them..
thats pretty easy.. I just need to design and build a mechanism that can support my weight (ok im only 135 lbs.. but what if i got fat.. it still need to support me)... and I can lower and raise it..
I'll know more once I get the bus and start measuring and playing with various things..
