I really like the idea of a porch. It can compensate for not having a side awning to give you a place to hang out or even grill and keep the sun and rain at bay. I have to find a bus and do some more planning, but I will definitely be incorporating one into my build.

I wish I weren't greedy for space. I've seen some fancy fifth wheels with a porch that folds down from the side. That would be more my style.

I like the idea of a deck on the roof better than one that is hinged off the side or extended off the rear of the bus.

only problem with a roof deck is if you get drunk its a lot tougher to crawl into the bus to crash

How do you get up there? Now, how do you get up there with a beer in your hand? I like the roof idea too but stairs are either taking up space or you've got a vertical ladder welded to the exterior.

Crashing is easier if you're not picky where.

I might have to give that some thought too.

As much as I like that idea (and I'm still on the fence as to whether I'm going to incorporate one in my eventual build) I think that roof decks are as bad as 60's hippie flower power paint jobs in setting off alarms in John Q. Public's head as to whether or not it's a bad idea to let these folks stay anywhere near me.
