Thank you very much!
I can't take much credit for the final floor plan (this one's probably version 5.3). The big stuff is where it is because it wouldn't fit anywhere else or would be really inconvenient to use in another spot or because the plumbing wouldn't work where I first wanted the thing placed. I originally had a much different plan in mind but reality intervened and this is what came about.
I lurked on this forum for almost two years before circumstances allowed us to finally pick up a bus, so I already had most of the mechanical stuff (furniture, plumbing, electrical) planned out ahead of time. Nonetheless, when I got to the actual construction phase every last plan was substantially changed or scrapped altogether. My original plan didn't take drains, frame rails and wheel wells into consideration and was totally unusable. Eventually, we got a usable floor plan, but the bus mostly told ME where stuff would fit instead of the other way around.
