So many, don't even know where to start! I would read through a bunch of different threads to see what other folks have done, then you can get more specific questions. Really depends on what you want out of your bus... Good luck and happy converting!

I did mine minimalist. I originally planned to put in a floor and maybe insulation, but after becoming overwhelemd with my options and funding, i decided to put my belongings inside and spend some time in the bus to feel it out.

Then i slowly figured out where i wanted stuff and what fit my style best.

I suspect what fits your style best will reveal itself in due time.

Fun huh!

That's pretty much what we've been doing we have spent almost a month in it now! I think we're starting to get a feel for what we're gonna need!
