Question Cut off short bus

We bought a short bus that was cut off after the third set of windows. We would like to add back on enough (approximately 4 ft) to make a bathroom. Any ideas where we could find the back body of a short bus?

Hmmm...got any pix? Sounds like you could weld up a square steel tube frame and rivet on more sheetmetal.

I do have pictures but I can't get them to upload. We are new to the site and trying to figure it out right now!

You have to have like five or ten posts to post pics or links, IIRC.

Short bus cutoff

We are trying to figure out whether we should cut the weld where they put the bus tailgate, add to the sides and then weld the bus back on. The other option is to leave the bus tailgate on and add about 4 more feet for the bathroom. You would go out the emergency exit to get to the bathroom.

It seems you got a bus thats missing a little bit.
I'd honestly sell it and get an unmodified bus before I tried to rebuild what's been chopped.
Or keep it and put a bed on the rear to haul stuff. Could strap an outhouse to it.
Or make it a 5th wheel hauler and use the restroom in the 5th wheel.

Use your link to go to PB. Look to the right, now left click on "IMG". It will auto copy (and say so for a short time). Return arrow back to here and paste into the body of message.

Congrats...you did it!
