I am currently converting a 9 window =]
Just finished gutting and framing. Working on sanding so I can paint while the bus is fully gutted for spray foam insulation.

What would you like to know about dimensions? I can do my best to give you some beta.

Mostly looking for layout ideas and other's details in this size 8-9 windows (some idea of similar unit's empty weight, freeway handling, highway noise level, hill climbing, rear end ratios).

Do people love their selection of this type? Do something different "next bus?" Just trying to get an idea what I am in for on this new project.

At this point I can't really comment on how I like it as I am still in the build process, but I sought this size out specifically because I think it perfectly fits my needs. Even though I'm in the build process, I have a full-sized floor plan mocked up in the wood shop so while it's getting spray foamed I can be working on the furniture. I can try to post some pictures later this week to give an idea of how I'll be utilizing the space if you'd like!

Thanks Dagny.

Yes, some floor plan ideas would be great... Is yours a 8 or 9 length?

Everybody has their own vision of the perfect bus. That would be mine. Congrats. I've driven trucks with the 466. Great engine. Lots of room but still has great maneuverability and not so long as to be difficult to find room for in campgrounds.

I have to agree on the size. I was looking for a big camper not a small home.

My guess is that she is approx 30ft long.
