Just west of Edmonton here.

Yes you need to host the pics to photobucket or the equivalent photo hosting site.

Then just post the IMG links here, and the pics appear.

What do you intend to use your bus for?

Full time living, camping, ect?

I use a multitude of sources, but I recommend Imgur or PB, since they both provide a copy and paste link, as seen in the below reference photo:

Even if you're not thinking about full-timing, some of us strongly recommend gutting the interior steel, pulling the fiberglass, and replacing with new foam insulation. Gutting the interior allows you to tackle any leak damage, remove the potential for future mold growth, increase the heating and cooling efficiency with new insulation, and generally let you design the interior the way you want it

And foaming the walls with insulation makes a HUGE difference in sound levels. Really quits down engine & road noises.

inner skin

I left mine on....
This is my first skoolie and I'm just using old trailer guts right now as I'm experimenting with interiors and learning new skills. As well,
One of the main reasons I started my affair with skoolies is cause I wanted a wood burning stove....and metal walls..lol.
I'm not sure about foam...wouldn't that be heavy? My neighbour is a foam installer too...lol
I was toying with the idea of building a heavyduty mobile camping/ living unit for hunting and oilfield workers. Living in the bush off grid stuff...in winter.
As for noise...I have a stereo system thats way louder than the road noise....and I don't mind screaming deisels....I live to drive...drive to live.
Btw...the junkyard next to my work is filled with skoolies and passanger busses. Im gonna start posting pics of everything.
