I'm going with the composting toilet. Just a simple bucket with a box around it and a lid on top. I need to make it stainless steel or something water proof though.

Update: I'm going to bring in a professional fabricator to take a look at it and give me an estimate to replace only the severely damaged ribs and all of the sheet metal. It seems that surface rust is what's on most of the ribs and the chassis should actually hardly be affected because it's not as thin as the fully corroded sheet metal. Haven't looked below yet but I doubt there's insulation under the engine. May not even have the fabricator weld, just manufacture. Could use this as an opportunity to raise the roof but I'm still feeling like that's not necessary for my purposes with this bus. Probably won't do it but I'll give it more thought over time.

It looks like this may still be a go.

Does anyone know what kind of shop I'm really supposed to call for the kind of work that needs to be done to my bus? Other than the two sections of ribs that needs replacing all that's needed to be done is for the rusted sheet metal skin to be replaced with fresh sheets and that's it. I've called around to several body shops however and most don't do this kind of thing. I have one guy who's willing to take a look at it but that's about it. Any suggestions?

I'd think any mobile fabricator would be able to help you out.

The one place who said they'd take a look at it happens to be one of those. I'm also looking for advice from anyone on here who's been through what I'm going through or has done pretty much what I'm looking to get done to tell me what their experience was like, the kind of money they spent, etc.

If all you need is a couple of ribs patched and some new panels put up, why not try it yourself? You could do it!
