Looking for Floor Plans

Hello All

Bob over at cheaprv living said you guys could help me I

I am looking for different kinds of floors plans for a Step Van conversion
I will probably be a 16 ft
I am not sure where to put everything
Here is a list of all the things I want to install

Heavy insulation for cold weather
Wood heating and cook stove
Fresh and Grey water tanks inside the box to prevent freezing
Sink/ Shower
Passive solar water heating in summer some kind of on demand gas heater in winter
Deep Cycle Batteries housed inside the box
The ability to charge the batts from a generator solar and if possible engine
Fridge /freezer that runs on variety of sources
Possibly air conditioner
Fan on roof
Loft Bed or
Bed that folds away or stows or loft bed
Composting Toilet

Is there anyone here that has all these things in their short school bus ?

Re: Looking for Floor Plans

there are plenty of plans for longer 30/'40 foot buses

It really boils down to were YOU want stuff, you are more than welcome to use a program like sketchup (free) and post multiple results for folks to give input on

IMHO, the best way to go about is to mockup all appliances and furnishings with cardboard. you will realize things like drain holes, electric runs, floorspace, etc will dictate change------------several times till ya get it right.
