Re: The 72 foot 1994 bluebird/fleetwood motorhome

Still trying to match my creation with a theme. Thinking like district 9..ya know the movie. Make it look like those shackes the aliens live in. Get that corrugated steel roofing and just start bolting it to the sides and roof. it would take away that stick and stapple look to the trialer and add a bit or protection from wind, water, noise etc. Need to lose the rv look on the trialer. Make it look like a shack put on an angled roof

I think what I will end up doing is just bolting couragated sheet metal over the bus windows painting the project and calling it a day!

I've seen that bus before. I think it was parked at Walmart in Manteca.

Re: The 72 foot 1994 bluebird/fleetwood motorhome

This is a photo of my first enginering Project. The Lincoln Town House. A house, a Car, a LINCOLN Town House! I built and lived in this in Hollywood for a few years before upgrading.














[/b]The bus came about when I was going to start converting busses to rv's for people to live in and rent those. Then I started building a doubal bus/rv because It was easyer for me to build 2 rv's into 1 so I only have to move 1 vehicle ....[/b]

Makes me think of an old Ringo Star song about putting himself in the movies and all he had to do is, act naturally.

I'm not sure yet if you are mentally insane or really onto something...

Keep building and thinking outside the box...

That skoolie with all the Jesus saves and palsm is usually parked right here in Ballard, WA (Seattle), used to drive by it all the time. Now it must be out on the road somewhere cause I don't see it anymore.

Re: The 72 foot 1994 bluebird/fleetwood motorhome

Hollywood has almost everything..Wait there's limos...theres party buses..But no after party bus.I mean no bus that pulls up in front of the clubs and picks up all the people who still want to party. Charge 25.00 a person and B.Y.O.B. I think I am onto building a party bus with a twist. 25.00 person * 30 People = 750. for a night. Drive through the hollywood hills playing some bad ass beats and drink and party till 4am!! I think I maybe on to something. I don't really want to use my current bus. I will buy another bus and make it the party bus !!

Re: The 72 foot 1994 bluebird/fleetwood motorhome

It was fun building the huge motor home and taking it out on trips. I am now very much considering cutting the body off the bus leave only the floor and putting the rv on the back of the bus. I would have a bus drivline ..which I need want..and i would still have the comfort of a professional conversion with out really the bus look.I'm sure it would look pretty dam ugly and chopped up but I'm a back yard mechanic not a professional cabinet maker. I would of course drop the axle in the trailer fork lift it on to the bus and to secure it by welding some big steel supports off the bus frame directly to the rv frame to secure it permanetly.

I have found bigger is not always better. It is almost impossible to go anywhere in a rig that size. You can't fit in about 90% of state parks is one proublem, You can't tow a car thats another proublem, It is impossible (almost) givin a few added inches to manuver, It is slow to tow takes for ever to get that rig to speed, To big to cool efficantly, to big to heat efficently, just to dam big in general.I would like to put the rv on the bus. I think that would be cool and pretty easy. I wouldn't ave to fool with pluming and all the other B.S associated with doing a bus conversion and still have a bus. I would like to leave about 10 foot of bus from the front cut the body off from there, from there and the rest the rv. Sheet metal the rv to the bus as if it were 1 unit and remove the slide out. It would be nice to put a firplace in the first 10 feet to heat the entire vehicle.

Re: The 72 foot 1994 bluebird/fleetwood motorhome

Well I strated demolition today. I decided in my plans to down size that gutting the trialer and moving into the bus was the best option. 1 the trailer is made of fiberglass and built like crap. The roof is rotted very bad in some spots, I do not want to comprimise the construction of my bus by chopping the body off it. I am sick of pulling that trailer it is going soon.
