My main problem is going to be closing in the greenhouse area. Anyone have any idea how I could do it?
It's relatively easy to cut the rear (say half) of the bus body off (move the rear cap with the door up to the cutoff) and have a flat bed behind the remaining body. The sides of the flat bed area could be any height you choose. Then fill that with your growing boxes (with light soil). I think you could fasion support hoops for traditional greenhouse material (it has to sustain the wind factor though).
I'd be inclined to just cut away the roof panels (above the side windows...leave the windows installed) and install transluscent fiberglass panels in their place. Install an interior bulkhead between the "farm" and the living quarters so you can control your temperature. With all the bus windows in the greenhouse area you should have plenty of temperature control. If it's too hot and you're parked you could throw a dark tarp over the transluscent panels (install a ladder at the rear of the bus).
Sounds like a fun project!
