And...the AT545 is way outdated. Getting hard to find anyone who wants to service them here. No lockup and fuel guzzlers. I have one I have offered for free and no takers. Personally I'd offer less or head south for a better deal.

Thanks everyone! We are totally down with a molasses engine and so we bought it for considerably less than what they were asking.

Thank you all for your input; it was much appreciated. Now, off to see everyones floor plans, see how you all do bunks, and what you've done for a kitchenette area. We're really excited! thanks for being patient with our newbie-ness; we're really glad we've found this resource.

Hi! We're in the big town up here

We are headed down to Homer tomorrow for a week of working on the bus in my inlaws workshop there. Just picked up our flooring and are headed to pick up a few more bus seats from a junkyard this afternoon. The bus we have was fairly well converted when we bought it. They laid a good subfloor but put the wrong kind of flooring in it for he level of moisture and cold we deal with here, so we'll be ripping that out and laying down some sheet vinyl flooring. The seat, table and shelving configuration was awkward for us, so we'll be reconfiguring everything too, adding a sink and countertop area and building a storage area we can access from the back door that will fit a queen mattress and some custom shelves on top of it. We are very fortunate that my father in law is a woodworker and lives for projects like this. I have some pics of what it looks like inside for now and I'll post those shortly, probably in the official build-out thread I'll start this weekend.

The boys also just decided to change her name --- she is now (and has been for some time, actually) .......'Bus'ter Brown
