Some Progress for you fellas.. I decided to tackle the worst wall, where I could visibly see water dripping in.. Yeah it was pretty gross behind there.. But I cleaned it all up, still need to find the leak.. The Flash makes it look worse than it is.. You can see the black marks on the foam where it was dripping down above the window..

I also decided to yank out the sink, Stove/Oven, and the counter top.. Plan is to keep the sink but mount it under the quartz counter top, and the oven/stove is going to be replaced by a flush mounted inductive stove top. freeing up space for a washer underneath hopefully..

I thought the bus looked pretty good at night... So here's some living room shots... So Plan is to remove the dinette.. It takes up lots of space.. I'd prefer table and chairs. The carpet will be removed for that piece together vinyl flooring. I decided on doing the FRP walls, with some hard foam backing.. Also the couch bed will be removed for a love seat. And the closest chair to the kitchen will be removed also. I decided I want to mount the TV over the passenger side Windshield... This bus is more of a permanent residence, so I will remove it when I decide to travel.. (Rare). Would love you guys input!!

Sprayfoam is nice sign of good conversion. Did you find Coachbuilder name anywhere?

Do you like those full-length upper cabinets or are they in the way?


Bus is looking good.

My thoughts too.. Seems well insulated, absorbs sounds very well.. I might be able to find that out.. So I bought it from the original owner, he built it in the 80's.. His friend owned a professional van conversion business, using his friends company they built it as she sits.. I shied away from already build conversions, but this one is nicely done.. albeit dated.. PS. I do like the cabinets.. Not in the way at all... and tons of storage.

Thanks for fb. everyone says "cant have enough storage". I'm trying so hard to keep it open....maybe one wall of upper cabinets or just front by seating...hmmm.

If you were closer I'd take you up on the dinette, but oh well.....

Whats everyones thoughts on Wood stoves? We actually have one in our parents house, so I'm used to keeping it going all winter... See I want to get a rid of propane, and only have electric.. Just an electric heater is going to suck, so I was thinking about a wood burner? This will be full time living, and I do live in Michigan.. Whats your thoughts?

Propane Cons

-I'm sure the 100gal tank is out of code, need new tank
-Since I plan to be parked 95% of the time, I do not want to move the bus to fill the tank
-Only would have to worry about installing 1 hookup for shore power, and water... 2 is better than 3..
