My thought exactly. But I like the ones with the small wide view section at the bottom. Almost any big truck stop or parts house. I much prefer the West Coasters to most of the other designs.

Well I finally got the seal out and did some measuring at the bus. I think the seal they sent is for a shorter door.
Gotta double check this, but looks like I'm still without a seal.
If I have to send this thing back I'm just paneling over the hole and installing an rv door.

The parts guy Gerald emailed me back. He says that its the only seal available. If that's the case I'll be sending it back.
Funny how things work out for me with buses. The longer I take the better off I am!

Not gonna fit!


Probably for the best, the RV door and repanel job will be cheaper and easier in the long run. Will also score "rv points" for parking in the city.

Something like this would give me a locking door, and that screen door would be awesome with a roof vent going!

I get the problem, the sour grapes, and the each to their own but yuck!! I'd prefer to stay more bussish. If I could figure out how to get some RV out of the original windows, I'd probably keep them too.
