Re: driver/passenger opening doors
I put an rv door around 6 feet in front of the passenger rear duals, cut out the front steps and put my generator in there. so, if you don't want the original steps i imagine you could carefully cut them out and use them in your new entry area.. I think in mine, the steps were around 8 1/4 high each, and the original ones were also. The new base for mine is in the right rear compartment, so i built two steps, and framed them in.
Main reason i elimated front door is that i now can put in a front flat floor that if i remember right is 5' x 9'. and second, for about 20 years, i have preferred a center door for entry.
In this type of bus that has a truck frame, you can pretty much put doors anywhere you like.
