Sweet bus! Looking good so far, I like the floor! Is your buddy fixing his up as well?

Re: 97 E350 20 Pass Bus Conversion

Need to answer a couple questions. First my buddy didnt remove his bus from the storage we had it in. The storage owner and the land owner had a falling out and I went down there witha tow truck and got mine out of there. My buddy decided it wasnt important as something else he had to do that day and now the land owner is holding it randsom. The plumbing I kept all in the back of the bus. Flojet on demand pump. I put it under the sink. Ran a line inside to the toilet. The other straight up to the sink. I have the fresh water inside the bus also.

Re: 97 E350 20 Pass Bus Conversion

Been a while since I've made some improvements. Found a video on Youtube that changed everything for me. A faster, lighter, easier way to make improvements on the bus. I'll leave the link for it. Funny dude and video but has the best idea for making cabinets and such. Here's what I got done today. I built a closet for the bus. Found the door for $5. The metal studs cost me $4 a piece. I used 4 to make it, so a total cost of about $30 including the paneling. Tomorrow is cabinet building.

Re: 97 E350 20 Pass Bus Conversion

Love the idea but how strong are those cabinets? Can't imagine they could hold any serious weight, like stacks of books or tools.

Re: 97 E350 20 Pass Bus Conversion

Just got my Title. 5 years after I bought the bus. I know it took a while but it was worth it. The whole process cost about $400 total. Several hours at the dmv and state patrol for inspections and 8 weeks waiting after it all was submitted. Here's a photo of me with my title. Colorado wasn't too bad to get it so if anyone needs advice I can try to help.
