Hello! We started a conversion on a 1991 Blue Bird about a year ago.

So far we've stripped the floors down to rusty metal, sanded it down bare, sprayed it with Rustoleum and laid a subfloor.

Our plan is to start the conversion full time in about 3 weeks, so that we can get on the road in March on our way to Homer, Alaska. There we will live in our Skoolie till the fall.

Opinions requested on our subfloor. We got some info that makes us consider starting again...

1st layer: 1/2" plywood
2nd: 2" foam insulation inside 1x1 frame screwed into the 1st layer
3rd: 1/2" plywood

My opinion is keep going and do not start again on this build. You have put a lot of work into it so far, so just build it from here use it and enjoy it, nobody is going to build a perfect bus. The mechanical parts of your bus are already 15 years old and have many miles on them. You probably don't know how many miles you will put on the bus and what climate you will be staying in at this point. So build it, use it, and enjoy it, at the end of the day you will have a better idea of what is necessary for you next conversion.
