So what you can do is put those things in and then just take them out after you get it retitled as an RV. look for parts on craigslist and then after it gets retitled sell them on crags list. Think of it as a governmental magic pixie tax.

I also wouldn't write off the shower as it is a good place to put wet clothes, rinse off muddy or sandy things, plug the drain fill with beer and ice... It doesn't have to be fancy a galvanized tub with a drain and a shower curtain with a hand shower would be enough.

Be mindful of your layout as there are floor panels you need to be able to have access to.

I think that the Twinkie busses would make for an excellent weekender. There are some Fantastic builds on this site
there are more mind you but these are good.

Aren't there certain of years of Crowns and Gilligs that have less curved windows? Its hard to tell from the photos that I can find.
My Gillig (1975 model) has all flat glass.
I have a bunch of extra side windows, want some?

Nat, the issue for me with the mid engine buses wasn't so much clearance, although it is rather low. It was the thought of all that sand, gravel and mud all over and on top of the engine.
The mid engine buses are a hoot to drive. It's a real truck engine (855 Cummins , 671 Detroit). Very peppy! But a little weird to have the engine laying on its side.
Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
