The wheel wells are under the dinette, rear bunk, sofa closest to toilet and the sink/fridge... The fuel tank is under the front bunk...

That leaves from the sink to the front of the rear sofa open underneath and under the toilet... That's why everything is on that side...

Already have my fresh, gray and black water tanks... Along with the pump for the fresh water... I have the plumbing for the waste dumps as well... Hoping I can make it all fit...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Here's the layout of the tanks...



Got the seats all out... The ones still in there are just for mock up to give me a feel for the space...





The ones facing sideways are positioned where the sofa will go...

The seats facing each other will be the dinette location...

Re: The Dirtybus...

hmm layout. What is the working length you have? From back of driver's seat to back of bus?

Perfect... my ideal space. I've a dozen layouts (sleeping 4) but haven't tried the bunks all against one wall yet. Swiping yours just in case that works out for us

Re: The Dirtybus...

OK, here's some stuff I've picked up for the build...

Got a fridge, stove, toilet, the smaller fresh tank, black tank, hood with light and fan, vent and some cushions all for $100...










I scored a larger fresh tank, a pump, converter/charger and a cabinet for free...

Here's what I've drawn up for the bunk framing...



Need to go pick up some lumber, but still have to finish stripping the floor and get it painted...

Re: The Dirtybus...

A member on another board just gave me this propane tank...

38 gal... I'll look into adding another valve so I can run the bus stuff and fill the Blazer tanks if need be...

Thanks again Chad...

Re: The Dirtybus...

Thanks...

That's how I built the Blazer... Lots of willing and dealing, trading and jumping on the right deals at the right time...

I think I'll use this tank just as a fueling station for the Blazer... I've set it up to run off propane and carry two 8 gal forklift tanks in the back of it as fuel cells... This will give me 4.5 more tank fulls of on board fuel...

With everything I'm running off propane in the bus I don't see me using more than a 5 gal tank, even on a long weekend...
I may jump up to an RV tank for the bus just in case...

But, I like the thought of having enough propane for the Blazer to wheel all weekend...
