Yes, this forum is a great addition. It's much tougher trying to retro a small bus then a large one.

Says you! I had to think of all kinds of crazy things to take up all that extra space. Oh wait...no...no...that really wasn't a struggle at all.

Re: FINALLY!!!! A forum for the spacially challenged!!

LOL Yeah, says me. ;) I'm having a hard time drawing out my plans for the interior. The woman now wants a bath and shower, mini kitchen (Refrig., sink, 2 burner stove, microwave and storage plus room for a couch/bed and room for guests to sit. 15' long x 7' 6" wide, thats tough.

Re: FINALLY!!!! A forum for the spacially challenged!!

Howdy All

Most certainly the small bus is hard to design for , but well worth it in my opinion.
My partner of 20+ years and I live in a 1967 Superior Coach on a Ford 500,

Many of the places we've been able to live or even simply park , would
not have worked with a full size bus. Somehow shorties are cute

We have a kitchen , stove , oven , fridge, satellite TV, internet , telephone, catalytic heater and
soon hopefully a sun-mar RV toilet.( already have the room built for it, just need the cash.)

12 Deep cycle batteries , solar , 40AMP land line charger , 90AMP batter isolator,
and we are in the middle of building a wood gasifier.

One of these times I need to take some pictures of the bus.
