Nice medium size bus. The build is well on its way. Looks like you're doing the full build.

A friend and I yes! We are now trying to tackle electrical as we can wire stuff just not sure of the specifics, we'd like solar for outlets a generator for ac/heat/fridge as well as a plug in option

Sounds like a fairly normal electrical setup. I'm sure you can set it up just based on electrical books you get at Home Depot or somewhere, but have a real electrician make sure your grounding is right for a vehicle before you put power to it. That part takes a little special knowledge, and some of the guys here do know how to do that.

Are you glad you're keeping it?

Very glad, I was layed off so forced to sell but got another job pretty fast so it's full steam ahead. I may contact an rv place to see a what a complete package thing with a roof ac, panel and everything needed to be solar ready as well as plug in would cost. I'm clueless when it comes to electrical.
