Thought you all might enjoy this. It's not a bus, but it's pretty impressive. You might get some ideas...

I think it looks too much like a manufactured RV on the interior (some folks like that) but did you look at his costs? I thought it might give some of the folks here a visual comparison on the costs. His cost sheet says a tad over $8K... video said higher but I suspect it included the frame. Also has tips on installing the filon skin. Still a nice job.

if it was me i woulda used 2x4 etc etc and screws not staples.

it is still impressive he made a 5er for under 9k.
