How much did you raise the roof of your bus?
and what did you do with the extra space? I am still trying to decide - tiny house on a trailer or converted skoolie. The skoolie is more likely to win because I am considering developing a concession business to transition into that will require traveling around the country.
I want more height for the following reasons:
* I want the minimum head clearance to be 7' +6"
* I want about 4" of insulation in the top of the bus (will be used in the cold of winter) +4"
* I want about 3" of insulation in the floor of the bus (it might be easier to add the insulation on top of the present floor and then put a new floor on top of that. +3"
* I would like about 10" of protected storage space in the bottom of the bus. The could be accomplished by using the space under the present floor (that is quickly be using up by a generator, fuel tanks, water tanks, etc) or to add 10" more to the height of the bus and make a 10" storage space on top of the floor - then add a new floor on top of the storage space. This storage space would be used for batteries, plumbing, water tanks, food storage, etc +10".
Somewhere along the line...as I thought of these...how would the center of gravity be affected by all of these changes?
