Re: The Brown Crown

This conversation is a testament to why it is so great to build your own RV to your own needs. My dinette is probably the most used area of my bus. I'm sitting at it right now, writing this post.

Re: The Brown Crown

Definitely makes me rethink my dinette, my motive... To accomadate myself and the old lady, or for the POSSIBLE convenience of others.
Space is very valuable on these buses.

Re: The Brown Crown

never too late to rearrange, sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. We thought about the dinette and then decided on a foldout table and some folding chairs, options are always good.

Re: The Brown Crown

Got the walls put up this morning on part of the Crown remodel. The couch is going to go here. Don't have any more wood grain paneling and I canít get any to match it, so I had to use half and half from the supply I had on hand, but the couch will hide that anyway, even when put down as a bed.

I also caulked around the floor engine access plates to prevent carbon monoxide fumes from seeping into the cabin. Tomorrow the couch gets moved and then the finishing trim for that area.

Re: The Brown Crown

You are moving fast. Your comments on the engine hatch seal got my attention. I have to remember to do something similar when we finish the flooring.

Re: The Brown Crown

I was able to get my couch moved to the port side today Also finished the trim around the wall pieces. I need to do a little more insulation upgrade on that side of the bus, then will switch my efforts to building my new wet bar area which will go under where my television is.

Here are some pics of today's efforts
