I started taking out the seats today. My insurance company, National General, wrote me a policy to get the bus home, but told me that they would let it cancel in 90 days if I didn’t demonstrate that I was moving towards conversion.They want me to get the seats out as soon as possible.
My plan is to initially do the absolute minimum to get the registration switched over to motor home. I am thinking Heating, Electric, Cooking, and a Refrigerator for my four mandatory life support systems. This will be accomplished by adding some house batteries in the underbelly storage with a charger and a shore power connection, a short run of kitchen floor cabinets with a countertop, sink and propane stovetop and an under-counter fridge. I will install some Chinese knockoffs of Webasto diesel fired heaters. That should get me signed off for official designation as a motor home. After which I will revisit everything with an eye to doing a quality build that will most likely include a roof raise, spray foam insulation and a lot of solar.
