Much better to find the leaks now than later when they will do some real damage. Those are pretty easy to fix.

So not much irl progress with the bus but I spent the last few days learning SketchUp and I drafted my floor plan. This is a rough draft despite it's near full conception due to the measurements being taken while the bus is still stripped. I will lose a couple of inches on each side all around at MOST and that still works theoretically so the dimensions of the furniture and stuff inside are probably going to remain as pictured below. Also, my bus has a curve that I didn't put in because I don't have measurements but it's not really gonna affect much more than the shower and closet spaces. Pictures:





Here's a top view with x-ray on with everything labeled:



Also the furniture and stuff inside were taken from 3D Warehouse so they are not accurate representations of exactly what's going to be put inside, merely they are there to convey the idea of the floor plan three-dimensionally.

Can't edit the above post. Some shots with the bathroom installed (not exact, just a representation of the basic idea):

If you're using a standard toilet there won't be space for a drain where you've placed it. A porta-potti will fit just fine. Plumbing in holding tanks and drains is the most difficult part of a bus conversion.

Yep...any standard RV potty need to drop straight down and directly into the holding tank. But a good location for a composting unit.

Nah it's not gonna be a standard toilet. That's just a placeholder showing where the toilets going to be placed and positioned. I plan on elevating it a bit by building a box basically that goes underneath between the wheel well and the toilet. Wasn't exactly sure what to do from there, whether to compost or plumb to black water tank. Will also be building a step up to the toilet over where the wheel well 45 degrees to the floor.

EDIT: Okay I see what y'all are saying about not being able to plumb it. Gonna go with a composting toilet then, and I may switch up the arrangement. Gotta figure out a way to waterproof it..

There's not a lot of space under the cutaway buses for tanks. I had to put my gray tank back behind the gas tank and there was only one spot where I could run the drain line from the shower. Had to run the drain back to the bumper to find a spot to cross the frame rail and back to the tank. I had to plan my tanks and drains first then design the rest around them.

5 gallon pail with a good toilet seat is hard to beat.
