I did almost the same thing with mine. Spent one winter with temps going down to 20 below. Only problem was the floor. Skirting and insulation will help that.

Try and get some hay bales and put them around the skirt of your bus to cut down on air movement underneath your bus; otherwise when the wind howls, you're loosing heat all around.

If you're going to skirt your bus with a natural material, use straw, not hay. Hay contains all sorts of stuff that rodents will find inviting.
