But all in all I'm still content and good.

This page is all different so I'm not sure I'm posting on my own post or to my old posts... Guess I been gone awhile.
Is that a washer/dryer combo unit? Just curious what unit you got. I was discussing this with another forum member who is just going with a washer.

EastCoast - yes.. washer and dryer in one. Splendide brand. Will fit where I was going to put a closet with room for shelves still above it.

Window latches.

Found a place in Louisiana that sells the plastic door thumb things for $1 each. Problem is he 'can't afford to send anything less that $50'. I'm thinking 12 windows on each side x 2 ea window would be 50-ish if I needed to replace them all. But still.. geez.

Another place has one for a Thomas/Carpenter/Ward/Wayne (which I would think would be almost interchangeable with a Superior-they look the same only thicker) for $7.95 and one place for $5.95 each.

My head is wondering if I could 'fashion' something that would work. As it is I've drilled little holes in the ones that broke and attached a paperclip.

If anyone has any to sell I'd be interested.

I have a Ward I'm pretty much completely gutting, and if you'll give me a better idea what the plastic door thumb thingy is, I'd likely send you one if I have it lying around. Pic?

Just the white plastic piece. Window release thumb tabs.

PM me your address and I'll send you the ones off my bus.
I'll pull one off today or tomorrow and make sure its the same, but I'm sure it is.

Well, I got one window out with a little daylight left, and broke the plastic pieces. I have the same ones, though. I'll try to be more careful, but the plastic is old and a bit brittle.
I'll get you at least a couple, bubble wrap them and mail them out by friday. They should be there next week, provided I don't break them. Three were already broke when I got the bus, so I'll do my best.
I did spill a beer messing with this widow today!!

I wish they'd just made them of metal.
Only my emergency windows have these, the others have the pot metal wedge shaped ones mounted to the windows at the corners.
It you're handy, I think these could be made from wood if done right. It wouldn't be too hard really.
Just a thought.

OK... the time I've been dreading has come. My landlady is selling her property. She is looking for another house that she can 'take me with' but in town they will not allow me to live in the bus. I can live in her house and park it at the house if we get one with RV parking. I am not set up to be classed as RV yet (2 years I should have gotten more done). Talked to a couple of mobile home/rv parks and they are wishy washy on the subject. I think they really don't know what to say, or ask. One lady kept telling me I had to have the personal property taxes current.

I hate to hear stuff like that. One thing about owning a bus that can be a real bear.

If I had the money, I'd buy a bunch of property somewhere with friendly codes and regulations and let anyone with a school bus live there who wanted to. That's my communistic, idealistic dream...
