Opinion time.

I would like some feedback about the two pictures, not about my poor use of the editing software. Which design do you think looks better. What about function. I am not sure it would be a good idea to skin the whole back half of the bus.

Design #1.



Design #2



The black is supposed to be new skin.

If the rear section is going to be a bedroom, I'd leave the windows there like in the first picture. There is something to be said for not having to use your battery powered lights at 5:00 pm in July. You can insulate a window against heat with tint, window quilts, etc, but you can't make a skinned over window translucent when you need just a little light to find your shoes early in the morning or late at night.

I have to agree....I don't like any light when I'm sleeping, but I'd rather have windows there when I need them. I can use shades, blinds, and curtains to take care of unwanted light...

Beats me. I never looked at or touched it. If I can, I will take a picture and post it. Then you can tell me.

I would go with design #1 and turn the front AC unit around as well as add another one in the back.

Pablo, I think the lines on your bus would be much cleaner if you took that right rear door out and closed it in. I also know someone who would take that door off of your hands.

#1, I think it looks slick. If you put rv windows in the rear it might be a bit more comfy.
