Show me your Loft?

Can any one show me your loft?
Im thinking the rear "Birth" to be an open loft with wooden ladder.
When in use, bed, when driving, storage for my gear/guitar.

Assuming a forward loft over the driver would be to small?
Im a small person any way, 5 foot 8

I have a full size blue bird.

Show me yours please.

I'm sorry but it's so funny. If men could give birth, would it be a "rear birth"?


BTW, the word you are intending to use is "berth". Sometimes spell check leave a lot to be desired.

OK, I'm resurrecting a year old thread, because I'm trying to figure out how to accommodate the family so that everyone has their own "space" to retreat to. Since length is constrained to 40' at most (and I've read some advice from full timers that you might want to stay closer to 35' if you plan to stay at state parks and such), I'm thinking there might be some play with height. I know that interstate bridge heights give a vertical constraint of 13.5', and we'd like solar panels on the roof, so we need to leave room for those... Are lofts feasible? Have folk done them? Without welding a whole other vehicle to the top of the bus? (I've seen a few of those, but I don't really like them. I'd rather keep the clean lines of the original bus roof and do a lift.)

How high does a typical bus floor sit? How much vertical space is typically lost to insulation - both above and below the living area? And how much height should we plan to leave for the solar panels? I'd LOVE to see pics if anyone has pulled this off!
