I will get better actual working pics this weekend.
I am computer challenged so I might end up adding them to my album.
Post one at a time?
Or have my wife use her camera and ask for an e-mail to send them to you.
But I will get them to you and I have already promised them to another SKOOLIE and haven't done it yet.
PM me an e-mail cause the other SKOOLIE wants them in e-mail.
So will probably do the album add eventually and send the working parts pic's to you directly.
It's my design and still has a few pieces to work out but that is after at least 6-years of seasonal use.
And I can and will explain as needed. Or PM me a phone number and we can play the text game with pics or call's.
Have fun
Be safe.

You seem to be looking for a long bus. My bus, for instance, is a 26' long FE. I don't think this medium size bus is big enough for all the things you want to include. You're talking about a 35 or 40' bus. In that case it's just a choice of FE or RE? You already know you want a big engine and a strong transmission with lockers and overdrive.
Well, given that we have looked at (and rejected due to low build quality, and HIGH cost several Class C RVs under 30 that have the desired features, admittedly with a super slide, but still. I figure with eliminating the need to walk around the bed, we should be able to with decent design, get everything we want into a 30' Skoolie without too much hassle...

Heck a 21 foot RoadTrek fits the bill but would be a bit more snug than I prefer...

I am not planning on extra couches, or separate dining table etc... Just bed / storage in the back that can fold up . couble as dining area seating, small but usable kitchen, and a bathroom....

Like I said, not allergic to the concept of showering in the entry stairs if I can figure out how to make that work and not rust the bus out...
