Is their a market at all for seats that you take out?
Not much market for them.
I gave mine to some really poor scrapper guys. They got about $50 for the metal.

There was someone on the forum looking for the stuffing. I forgot who and I can't find the page. I'm sure the stuffing in those seats could be useful to someone. After all "one man's trash is another man's treasure".

The "stuffing" from mine was absolutely gross.
The best two were salvaged for our three legged dog though.

Also kind of a random question. but say i were to live on this thing for a year or so. Where the hell do you do your laundry? haha


If your going for a shorter bus, I would do laundry at a laundry mat and not worry about the water, electricity, and space needed to do it on-board. If you go with at least a 30 footer and are either hooked up to utilities or have the capacity, look into an apartment washer dryer combo. they are small and efficient.

Or even a 2-1 unit

I actually like the 2-1 units. They are in kitchens all over the world. To us here in the states, they seem odd.

When I was on the road. I would either wash laundry in a creek(using biodegradable soap) and hang it to dry on a nylon clothesline I'd hang from a couple trees or wash my clothes at a laundromat and then dry them on said clothes line. That is if it was in the summer. Winter(and colder seasons in general) I would just hit a laundromat for wash and dry.

Back to the bikes inside.. Think about the fact that you will be sleeping in a small contained space with gasoline fumes. There is also the matter of power and any sparks. Space heaters, kitchen stove, toaster etc. might not go well and you should think about an sensor for fumes and a way to ventilate the area where the bike is. I sound like mother hen but staying alive is important and we don't want to loose any skoolies.

That's why I suggested at least a 30 footer. You could then wall off the rear just for the bike. A CO2 sensor is a must for any RV, I don't know if they make a sensor for gas fumes.

I'd build it a "garage" somewhere back there.

Like outcast said i planned on walling off the back end of the bus just enough to fit the bike and maybe just have a rooftop ventilation back there. The monoxide sensor i was definitely going to get though! Ive been looking at buses and the 8 window busses ive seen seem perfect.
