I was trying to stay away form plastic and I can clean this can, lid opens with about 7 inches and I can get my arm in to clean. It was a little expensive but will last forever, with how I have to care for my wife in her wheelchair I don't see us being to far from water hook ups only over night and 10 gallons of water should be fine.
Thanks for the kind words about my construction of the bus.

saw a Vietnamese co-worker ruin the finish on a BRAND NEW 15 minute old $500,000 Homogenizer.... looks great when it's wet, and that is the only time it looks great!
Plant manager told him to clean off the adhesive shipping stickers

FABULOUS JOB......

Shoots.....finding the space for all we want in our buses alone is daunting. To design a bus that can hold as much as you have made and still be able to go from front to back in a wheelchair is miraculous.

I am in total awe.

You actually had me with the bar stool swivels for the bed. I gotta find something to swivel now so I can try that idea out.

Sitting here just shaking my head over the job you did has left me just speechless (and that takes a lot...ask my Hubby)

Thanks I will use only a washcloth, If you have question about any thing just ask, but remember I am 50 now so I may have to think a long time to try and remember what and how I did anything, hahaha

Thanks, I would sit in it and look and look and look, and rethink it some more, would wake up in the middle of the night and have an idea then the next day to out and put it together. It has been so much fun doing this conversion.
Again Thanks

I recently turned 70. Any time you wake up on the right side of the grass, makes for a good start to the day.
