She's really done a top-notch job. That bus of yours is an instant, iconic classic.
When I think of this site, its your bus that pops to mind.

A few weeks ago I took some inside the bus temps that might be of interest to some.

Sunny, cloudless day.

Bus in full sun, mid-day, sun overhead.

Ambient temp=97.

Bus entry door open, 3 windows open, no noticeable breeze. Roof vents closed.


Inside bus temps varied from 99f to 93f depending upon where I aimed the temp gun.

Roof (white) temp 104f.

Ceiling temp 96f-99f.

BB TC1000 (26') with OEM body and insulation. White roof and tinted windows.

Trying to promote keeping stock insulation?

I just laugh at posts like this. Regardless of interior temperature, the radiant heat is just gross in a stock insulated bus.

Nothing like sitting there sweating and having to drink min 10 oz of water every 30 min to keep from getting heatstroke.

But look at me, I skipped a little bit of hard work.

Energy will just keep getting more expensive as time go's on. Insulation is the only investment in a bus that keeps paying for the life of the bus, and pays more as time go's on.

Just like in homes. There is no such thing as too much insulation.

I really like your paint. However this build is a perfect example of looks over function. All that effort you put into painting could have built a much better interior.

Nope, don't give a rats ass, just an observation.

Glad you enjoyed it but it wasn't for you, not everything is.



Built our bus for us, no one else. We love it.

No butt hurt here.

You want to cook like a egg, that's cool with me.

The faster the better. Lol
