Hey Boog, welcome. Just start doing searches for what you may have a question about. Lots of pics in the gallery. Lots of help to be had here, and a lot of talent and thought put into some of these buses. We won't talk about money......

Re: Newbie!!

Welcome! Hope you guys have loads of fun converting your bus! It's probably as addictive than hunting.

Re: Newbie!!

thanks everyone for making me feel welcome.
We live in the twin cities.
We store our bus about an hour north.
So we only get to work on it on the weekends.
Still got away to go yet.
What size water heaters do you use?

Re: Newbie!!

Wow you'all have been busy! Making great progress...
As far as tile floors, I know they use them in the stick n staple RV's sometimes. I think it would be easy to clean but not too warm on the feet in the winter but cool in summer - just don't get a white or anything light colored, bitch to keep clean... Would the tile have a tendency to crack? I don't know...

Re: Newbie!!

Do not use light colored tile or grout where you have high traffic unless you want to know when its time to clean the bus. I use to work at a tacobell that had light grey tiles and grout. While it didnt show light amounts of dirt, it became obvious when it was time to mop the floors half way through the day.

Only problem I see with anything cracking in the floor is going to be the grout. But they have flexing grout from what I remember, so it shouldnt be too much of a problem. If it does crack or chip or anything, you can always get one of those Vibro-tools that dont use blades to just remove the grout (and tile), then just re-grout that one area.
