Are you driving an FE bus? You should do this...

While going thru google images this morning looking for a mobile boutique shorty that I passed, I found the picture below of a box truck. No reason something similar couldn't be done with a bus. If you're chasing the weather and not worried about Churchill, Canada in the winter or Death Valley in the summer, it would make an excellent dining area or bedroom.

My only issue with this is security. It is bad enough idiots buy doors with windows right by the locks, having something this massive is just screaming break in. At least give em something to struggle with.

Anyone who breaks into my domicile would quickly regret that decision.

Maybe I'm just used to living in town, but I don't usually go on the porch in my boxers too often. Once in a while early in the AM.

If you don't want to see something you don't want to then don't go looking in my windows.

Exactly. There's more than one way to deter people from looking in windows they've got no business looking in.
