Should things like fuel tanks (diesel and propane) as well as water tanks be put in the middle of the bus so that as the fuel and water are used the weight distribution of the bus is not affected?
That pax load was distributed more or less evenly. It still is important to properly distribute water tanks, generators and other heavy stuff.
Take your empty bus to a scale, it will give you front and rear weights for $8.
