Re: 1st. post. I want a bus! :)

Careful planning is the key to a great conversion. Stick with known RV components as they are designed for a mobile enviroment and as such you're engineering requirements will be reduced to simply figuring out where and how to install it, not how to build it too. No sense in trying to redesign the wheel...

I think you'll find that the rear lavatory in the MC8 is not going to be the best solution, lacks a shower, and it's placement is going to make it difficult to get at, beds usually are go all the way in the back because they take up the most room. Unless you plan on using single size beds instead of Full or Queen, you are not going to have room for a "walk-around" to get at that rear lavatory. I'd recommend you go to RV Shows and or RV Dealers and do a lot of walk-thru's in various Class-A MH's to get an idea of how to make a good working layout. These things are professionally designed, so using their design idea's cuts out a lotta engineering.

Save yourself double the trouble, build it right the first time so you don't have to go back and do things over (ask me how I come by that one!!)

...Your living room has a steering wheel!
...Your home has brake lights
