I thought I would go ahead and start a project thread.
Saturday (17 Feb 201
we pickup up a 2004 Thomas 40' with Cat 3126 and Allison 3060. Bus has 140k miles and runs great! I am crossing my fingers and hoping we can get that 6th gear unlocked in the future.
Our plans for this bus is to be our full time home for sometime while we build a house.
We will be fully insulating it with closed cell spray foam.
Plan currently is to put a queen master in the back, bunk room, bathroom, kitchen and then living/dining room.
My big dilemma is I really want to do triple bunks but will not be able due to the low ceiling height of the bus.
If anyone has any tips or ideas on fitting all this into a good layout on a 40' bus please let me know.
We will post regular updates on this project in this thread and also regular video updates via YouTube.
I am actually pretty excited about this project.
Oh, did I mention we are on a slight time crunch? We are hoping to sell our current home by May, Pay off all our debt and leave with plenty of Cash equity to get us started on our debt free/mortgage free future.
This means I need to have the essentials completed in the next few months....
