2003 Freightliner Fs65 conversion

I've finalized the layout I plan on doing, trying to keep it minimalist as possible.. planning on using it mainly for short camping trips or just driving around,

I'll post more stuff. As time allows. I'm currently in the middle of a move out of a apartment into a house.

I'm going to have 3 bunks sleeping 6.. plus master bedroom .. and seating for 13 passengers.. and part of the plan is having 3 "booths" with 2 school bus seats facing each other and a table in between and on one side two bus seats facing forward.and behind the driver is a desk along the wall with a captain's chair that can swivel and pivot with a seatbelt on it.


That seat behind the driver would sorta be like the ham radio desk and the "navigators" chair.

Not planning on a running water system or shower. Going to put in a glorified closet with a marine /rv cassette toilet for use in a emergency so it checks wisconsin's "self contained or flushing/running water toilet.. or bathroom facility" as one of the requirements on the conversion checklist worksheet. Going to use bus seats facing each other made into three dining/sitting booths and two normal seats facing forward.. total passenger seating for up to 13 and sleeping 8.

Also going to do a self contained water system for the sink.. only for washing dishes mainly and would be like a hand pump system for the sink and like a 10 gallon waste and fresh water capacity that the waste water would be dumped by hand

I see you decided to convert rather than sell the bus. I think that is good news. It sounds like you have a lot of friends that like to camp. What you plan should serve you.
