Some quick thoughts from me: it's hard to design a bus until your in it. But looking at ideas on graph paper is a great way to start visualizing. My interior came out about 7'6" wide.
Your second bed is drawn 5' x 5'. That's a tiny non standard size. Not sure that layout will work in practice.
200 gallons is a lot of water. You don't show it in your plans where you're storing it. I guess if you have pass through storage underneath it will fit. Many busses don't have that. Same with the 75 gallon grey. If you go anywhere cold enough the water and pipes will freeze on you under the bus.
Designing my bus has been like solving a puzzle. I'm enjoying it. Form follows function. You're likely to have wheel wells in your way no matter what you do. And their location can vary by bus.
