Greetings all! New here. I just bought a '97 Ford / Thomas Shorty bus, I'm picking it up this weekend and I'm pretty geeked about it.
Many have you have been where I am now so what would be the first thing you'd do? I'm going to use my bus mainly for tailgating but on occasions, take it to the lake, NASCAR, camping and short trips. I really don't think I want a bath in it as the bus is only 22' long.
Things I want to do is:
2) observation deck up top
3) Back patio for storage/step
5) Customize the interior (as imagined) I was thinking about wood walls up to the window bottom to give it a cabin look/feel.
6) I think it's called a jack knife bed, sofa that folds to a bed x 2.
7) Table, TV, stereo
Refrigerator/kegerator with taps that run to an outside mounted tap.
I'm going to end up painting the bus myself and try and save money along with just about all else.
Any feedback help is appreciated.
