Yeah where'd you go? Your bus build was the one that kicked me in the pants to do a cab lift.

Hey everyone I'm still around. Ran out of money last spring, seems to be an important item. I do have a refrigerator and 6' sofa. Stated to install walls for the bathroom. I will post what was done and give an update. I plan to rip out what I did and redo it.

The only thing constant is change!
Have fun. I'm going back through this thread trying to get myself amped up enough to raise my own roof.

Glad to hear you're still around!! I totally hear you. Seems that little green item has a way of controlling ll our ventures. I got laid off a few weeks ago and am using up the material I banked for the project. Gonna have to shift gears now and see what I can do while financially challenged. At my stage of the game, there's always rivets to drill. Oh joy .
Where are you these days? Didn't you leave the east coast?

We have been doing some camping in the bus. I'm planning to start working on it again. I will post here when I do.

I did some of my walls using the steel framing, but have to rip it out because the screws keep working their way out from the vibration of driving the bus.

I also have an over heating issue to deal with. It over heats on 90 degree plus days going up big mountains at 65 mph.
