Greetings,
In order to put the windows in mine, I only had to remove one for each window. I did install a 1 1/2 square tube header and footer between the posts that stayed so I don't think I lost any amount of strength. If you removed two or three, it would probably have an affect on rollover strength, but side impact would probably not suffer much. Also, most autos and regular pickups would impact below floor level!

I love your tag line.......I feel the same way as I rode a bus for most of my years of going to school thru all kinds of weather.
I only remember a handfull of breakdowns where we didn't make it in the one we started in.
I also remember field trips of up to 6 hours one way.
Those were usually in the summer, but I don't remember it being all that hot on those!

i faced two of my bus seats to make a table (no bed) and it works great.
as far as making it in to a table bed it would not be hard.
you can buy a table bracket it is a 2 peice type one on the table and one on the wall and they connect togther. use a rv pole mount for the end of table. just make the table as wide as the gap between the seats then use the steel tubing on the bottom of the seat to attach a bracket to hold it in position. if using for adult to sleep in i think you will have to have a very wide table. my table is 30"x38" good luck!
