Re: making dividers

There was a thread a few months ago on this- search "wall template". My idea is to:
1. Park bus level. Check at a few spots to verify being level especially side to side.
2. Attach a 2x2 across the bus, level.
3. Make marks evenly, say every 2 to 3 inches starting from each wall, moving toward the center.
4. Take a plumb line (string with a nut tied on) and align with the marks, make a corresponding mark on the roof.
5. Measure and record distances from roof to top of 2x2.
6. measure from top of 2x2 to floor at a few points.
7. Transfer measurements to heavy cardboard, connect the dots and cut.
8. Test fit and refine curve til you're happy. Leave a slight gap for flexing- use flexible molding to cover.

Keep the cardboard template and measurements for future use. Test fit each new wall with a cardboard template to avoid waste of good material!
I'd record each side to past the center line, in case you want to build a longer/wider wall. Record each seperately. I wouldn't count on both sides being exactly the same! Might as well take the measurements while it's all set up.
