I can't cut chassis members.

Are you talking about the ribs in the floor, or the bus frame?

The beams supporting the floor. That's a definite no no

That would not stop me.

I would cut what you need to, add some support back to the side of the member you cut.

My shed has three ribs that have completely failed, broken and no longer connected to the sheet metal floor. It's still more than strong enough.

Even if you just cut that one and don't add any other support, you will still be fine.

The bath was in the previous peoples conversion. I decided to go with a shower instead. The shower base is $125 so its not too bad.

Another thing... The bath is 30x60 and the two windows it takes up will allow only 56 inches meaning I would have to replace a window with sheet metal or have a funky wall. The shower pans are 48x32 which means I can have a cupboard hidden away beside the shower and get all the light from two windows.

That's a good price.

I stayed with a tub in case my running water don't work for some worst case scenario. That way I can heat water on my wood / coal stove and pour it into the tub.

That's a neat idea. An alternative would be to heat a bucket of water and have an old style scrub down.

The bucket scrub is what I do now when I don't feel like going to the gym after a hard day of work.

The plan is over the weekend to run wires from front to back under the top access panels for my rear view camera and my forthcoming trailer. If there's time after that, to sand the plywood floor and rivet a plate over one of the holes the hillbillies cut in the floor. I might have to replace some of the plywood. I'll also have to caulk and paint the windows on the inside. Another thing to do is to reseal the one roof leak that drips on a wheel arch. Then I'll be able to start construction of the bedroom. Now the bath isn't going to be present, I have a load more space.
