I don't know what your problem is. I said we never had a problem with park rangers. We homeschooled/unschooled our kids for 8 years in SC, TN, NC, and GA. I was homescooling in a time frame where some states would remove kids from the home if they were being homeschooled. SORRY! I was just pointing out something that most folks don't think about. I won't post anything else on this subject since you are soooooo touchy about it. This forum is getting to be a pain.

No problem here. Just joining in on some friendly conversation in a fabulous build thread. Carry on.

You have no idea what a pain it is to constantly have to climb over someone to get in/out of the bed. An island bed is the way to go, even if you can't put a king size in . We can only get a full in our bus but that is what we have been sleeping on for the last 5 years.

I read on the RV forums of some folks considering "zip lines" to get into bed! Seems the sideways beds are universally disliked once it has to be shared. And that is not taking into account the pain in having to make up a sideways bed!

Re: There and back again... Our future adventure transport.

This morning found this piece of furniture that might be useful for you. Basically is like a kitchen cabinet, but has 3 pull outs: 2 seats and a table. Go to:
http://books.google.com/books?id=x9sDAA ... e&q&f=true
and type 105 in the space next to "contents" to go to the page.

Re: There and back again... Our future adventure transport.

That's neat. But I wouldn't do the chairs. Takes up too much storage space when you can use a folding chair instead. The "table" is similar to a pullout cutting board.

I also like the adjustable lounge chair on pg 111 and the paperhanger's portable paint bucket stand (folding table) pg 145


Look at bottom of pg 5 for the "ten wheel marsh buggy"

The ads are interesting too.

Re: There and back again... Our future adventure transport.

I agree on the chairs, but if you put 2 of them side to side you can have the pullout tables, the storage where the project chairs are and a bed on top.
Currently I am going through the whole set, started with the 1905 ones and currently in 1939. Saving everything of interest

So you want to eat at your bed? Is that any different from eating IN your bed? Of course that is where I had supper tonight while watching TV.

Re: There and back again... Our future adventure transport.

I was thinking about substituting the rear table with something more "multi-functional". There is not a whole lot of space inside. BTW how many are you?. Because at mealtime probably you can fit 5 in the front table, the rest of the time probably you will not have "quorum".

Re: There and back again... Our future adventure transport.

I have two day beds in mine and the center becomes a bed insert at night. It is a bit of a pain to crawl over it to get from the front door to the other side of the bed, which sits near the front door. However, it sure gives a lot more storage room when needed and makes for a full size bed. We do use the day beds as chairs to eat at fold out tables, and yes, that does mean each night I have to check for crumbs before setting up beds. Not much different than cleaning up around the kitchen table after eating.

The flooring looks great! Be ready to repair cracks often. One uneven surface and the bus is doing a ziggy wiggle which has cracked our flooring here and there.

Btw, our kids are homeschooled. Day bed comes in handy for projects and lessons and the setup lets me put in the boards for the center (minus the bed cushions) for large flat surfaces to work on for big projects.

Love the conversion you're doing
