If I had my choice, money, time, and physical ability....
I'd pull my ceiling panels down, insulate with pink or green polyiso and cedar plank the whole thing.

But, my time got cut short by about 6 months after purchase and had to move in right away.

I'm glad to see someone is working on their bust his weekend!
I got a bad case of the DGAS... Maybe I'll get motorvated here in a little bit.
I did install my pocket doors about midnight though

Didn't get as far as I wanted to today but got everything removed on the driver side wall and started at the back wall until I realized I'm probably going to have to lower the a/c unit to properly do the rear wall correctly. Wanted to finish up removing the rest of the floor but the dumpster at the shop is almost full for the week so I'm gonna have to wait for them to dump it again for more room. Also got most all the wires removed, with the exception of the wires in the roof. So all in all it was a pretty successful weekend. Hopefully I'll have the generator figured out here soon so I can get it mounted.

Still unsure of which route I'm gonna use for insulation, honestly does the floor really need insulation? I'm a tall guy and my head didn't hit with the plywood in there but it was super close, would rather have head room than floor insulation, or at least that's what I'm thinking, I mean the floor wasn't insulated before

On the weekends I have plenty of time, I was gonna leave the ceiling panels but the more I thought about it im tearing them down, in the long run I think itll be better.

has anyone ever spray foamed a short bus? if so what was the cost? is it really worth it?
Also whats the best insulation the buid a box around the generator for heat and sound?

I routed a lot of wires and A/C ducts under my chair rail inside of diversitech refrigerant lineset covers..it snaps together and fit perfect... when I get my bus out again I can snap a pic if you are interested.. but its a nice channel for routing things.

Yes cadillackid I'm always open to any and all ideas, wouldn't mind seeing how to run the wires better.
Also I'm thinking about insulating and building a wall along the back three Windows inside, would just insulation be fine? I don't want moisture getting trapped between the window and the wall.
