Welcome to the group. There are multitudes of threads on here discussing exactly what you are looking for. I started reading and following along several months before taking the leap myself. There is no one answer for all scenarios because there are different types of buses, different expectations by owners, and different budgets. However, there is enough information on this site to cover most of those variables. Beyond that, if you can't find a specific issue covered - post a pic with the question, and I'm sure you'll get a variety of opinions on what you should do!!

MTB mountain biking? If you ever want to do intermediate out West, I'm near Tahoe and there are some great trails here. I want to go to Moab sometime, too, but I am not up for the expert stuff. Trying to figure out where to put the garage on our RE bus. It's 40' long already so I really can't add it onto a deck on the back!! We may need to add a rear door on the side toward the back. Not ideal, but there IS a bit of rust there anyway, so maybe we could make some lemonade there.....

Benefits of insulation exceed just temp control, it also controls noise. It would be a shame to get this far in deconstruction and then find out later that you had wished you had gone that extra step.
