Weird Question...indulge me

OK, so reading around the board got me seriously thinking of adding a deck atop the bus. My thoughts are that it could double as a luggage rack when we're on the road.

I would like to make it accessible from the inside, with a ladder. OK, so I'm sacrificing floor space, but to give us more "living" space, as well as a place to put the bikes so I don't have to worry about hitches/trailers being an issue.

So I got to thinking...some buses have emergency exits on the roof. Someone mentioned that there is a requirement to have two emergency exits. Would this roof access be able to count as an emergency exit or should I just have a standard plan to make the back door accessible?

Re: Weird Question...indulge me

when you do the conversion and change the title to a rv title the school bus rules and regulations are no longer applicable, that being said, you will still want to provide emergency egess points, a roof hatch would certianly qualify, also most late model busses have pushout escape windows on both sides, some rv windows are also set up to be escape points.
