Greetings y'all....I'm considering buying this bus
for a conversion project. As I cruise forums and various skoolie social media pages, I find myself second guessing whether or not it's the correct bus for me (compounded by the fact that I am not handy, so I am placing the conversion in the hands of another person).
Would this bus be appropriate for the following conversion:
Outfitted with basic things:
twin-sized bed that would sit on top of storage, couch that would sit on top of storage (likely a custom couch, basic kitchen area with small fridge and microwave/cooking appliance and storage, AC unit, alternate power source, and that's about it. Basically, would the combined weight of these retrofits and living necessities be a burden on the vehicle engine (or, is this even discernable from the information provided in the link, and if not should I be asking the seller additional questions?)
Could the roof support a roof rack if done right?
Some sort of metal box frame with 2x4s as the flooring of the roof rack. Would like to be able to get some people up there, maybe 4 people or so?
I just obviously don't want to purchase a vehicle and find it's not fit for what I have in mind.
Thanks in advance for you help!
