Well, then I guess that makes us non-identical twins...

....congrats on your new toy hauler. I'll be watching, I like to see how others get there toys around.

If you haven't already seen "WHITEY THE TOY HAULER" they did an excellent job....for street and dirt bikes.

Sorry to disappoint but the original plan was to build a toy hauler for mx bikes, but the bikes will now stay in the trailer and be towed by the bus.

The plan was to do something like "WHITEY THE TOY HAULER". I think they did a great job.

So we got a little more done last night - removed the railing in the stair well and the padded wall. The plan is to put a passenger set there which we can turn to face the living area.







That really opened things up.



Found these seats in junked Volvo at the local scrap yard - I think they would work great. May also use the matching driver seat to replace the bus driver seat. I will use the existing pedestal as you can raise the seat and also adjusts back and forth.

I learned that you need to tuck your thumb in when trying to close a sticking bus window. We had to break into the big first aide kit which comes with the bus. It had an inspection seal from 2010. There are enough band aides inside to last a lifetime so its all good.
