Well it's home...

Bus made the 2 hr trip today and did great.. Now to clean out a place around back in front of the garage to start on the build... After seeing how tall the bus is I'm a little concerned about a roof raise. It'll probably look stupid being taller than it is long...HMMMMMMM

Yea and my back yard is low, I've got to haul more gravel first. I can't wait forever because this thing takes up a lot of room in the driveway. One question for everyone, how tall is your bus? I've been able to do some real measurements and my bus is 12 ft 2 in to top of emergency hatches. That means a foot is all I could raise the roof if I wanted to... How do people get away with roof raises of 18in-24in and have roof racks for solar? Is my bus just freakishly tall? It is 77 in inside which is pretty good but I wanted to put my shower above the wheel wells but can't if I don't bump up the ceiling... Thanks

once you remove the plywood on the floor you should have around 78". thats a great thing. as far as what you put where in the bus whats under the bus determines that. look for a place to put your gray and black tank and thats where your toilet and shower will go, main drain should be on drivers side. i spray foamed also my link is below, good luck
