School bus plans

I am getting ready to start on my bus (1981 IH 9 window 392 gas 78,000 miles) and would appreciate any thoughts/suggestions regarding the plans. I did not include the drivers area and steps. The dining table is right behind the driver's seat.
thanks
Jerry

Re: School bus plans

Nice diagram.

The catch with skoolie floorplans usually turns out to be gray/blackwater tank locations, and getting liquid to them via gravity. The locations of existing fuel tanks, chassis rails, and wheels/axles/wheel humps are obviously key. If you have an underbelly plan, you should be good. Also make sure your vents (fresh & waste tanks, and any propane appliances) are accounted for.

HTH,
Sean

Re: School bus plans

Thanks for the advise.
The reason that the shower and toilet are not closer to the bed is that I wanted to keep them away from the wheel wells. I tried to find room for them together but could not do it.
I do like the idea of swithing the kitchen area and the bunks to get the kitchen a bit closer to the dinette.
I am working on the other various layers (i.e., wiring, plumbing, tanks, etc).
