Hey! So my plans are as follows with room for suggestions and changes lol.

-Painting it white going to accent it later with a color not sure what yet.
-Demo whole floor, insulate, and throw down some snap vinyl.
-Possibly cedar ceilings or some sort of wood or maybe just leaving it for now.
-Full XL bed, pantry, dinette converting to a table and bed for tiny guests lol.
-Swivel captain seat
-Kitchen with propane stove in counter, sink and chest freezer converted to a fridge.
-Small upper cabinets.
-Grey and fresh water tank with city hook up.
-2 or 3 solar panels, goal zero 1250 or make my own bank, attached to a fuse box that will run all other systems, and a separate fuse box for 12v systems.
-Led lights and possible back up camera with new radio deck that can run on shore or my other electric when parked up.

Air conditioner I would like to use the one in the bus but Iím not sure if thatís possible without running idle. It appears that when I put the bus in accessory mode it is running but that may just be the fans not cold air. If thatís the case prob just a RV fan installation.

Then once all insured and registered Iíll add a deck if thereís room!

Thatís the overall plan I officially get the bus in a week thatís when imma take the seats out and start mapping it out.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 10:03 AM.
