Guess I need to read more into the threads before I make a response.....
I feel like there are so many different variations and sizes of a 4 window bus, I wanted to actually include a picture. My fault! But yes, RIF!

He makes it work! I'd be super impressed if he had his own bathroom and not a communal one.

Re: Square Footage?

It you are doing floor layout, something else to keep in mind are the wheelwells.
In ours they are about 2 feet long by 20" wide x 12" tall. They start 3 feet from the back wall(meaning there is 3 feet of flat floor between the back wall and the wheel hump.
Doesn't seem like much but it makes a difference trying to fit stuff in.

Ours is setup for two people and it works well for that. 2 bunks/ bathroom and sink / counter. It also helps to find some swivel buckets for seats.

If our daughter comes with on any trip it is really cramped then. I'm currently trying to reconfigure it to get a third bunk or sleeping surface somewhere, anywhere.

I like the smaller bus but If I had to do it over again I would look for a 5 or 6 window version with the handicap door in the rear.

We could all sleep up there with something like this mounted on the roof.

Trust me, me cheap too. that's why i have a skoolie.
I didn't realise they were that much . Yep that wouldn't happen.

The tent idea might have some possibilities. I'm going to have to think that thru some more.

Re: Square Footage?

If I could get lucky and find one of those tents for cheap I'd put it on the bus in a heart beat...
