I wasn't about to sit in the back of our bus while Marty drove all over the country for the next decade and enjoyed the views out of those great big beautiful Van Hool windshields nor was I going to sit and dangle my feet over a gaping hole of entry stairs. So we fixed it. We designed and are putting in a spiral staircase for our entry area. Now my seat can sit next to the drivers seat and I can enjoy the view as well. Problem solved!
Here's some in process pictures.
