Yeah :/ it's not the way I'd do it either, lol. The previous owners had raised the roof, and I had no idea it would cause so many issues.

Fellow skoolies, IMO

This roof raise using wood is why I recommend NOT buying a bus that was already modified / converted. Your buying someone else's mistakes.

I would cut that apart and fix it. However in reality where they cut it, there is no fixing it. That is right at the curve point, no room to splice onto the support ribs.

A different bus would be my approach. That one is fit for storage that never moves.

Having said all that, Do what you need to with your budget to get by.
