We went on our first trip this weekend. We took a four hour drive (270 miles one way) down to the Texas coast and camped on the beach on Mustang Island. The bus ran great and was an absolute joy to camp in. We slept well, ate well, and were never uncomfortable. I am in love.
It rained pretty good the day before so the sand was perfect. No issues at all. I had to keep my momentum up a few times going through some semi-saturated stuff but it wasn't an issue. If I would have stopped in that stuff I am sure I would have had problems.
I bought it pretty much as is on the build out side. I just did some mechanical stuff to get it on the road. The portable AC works well. I cut a hole in the floor and ran the duct work to the floor so I didn't have to run it to a window. I also ran the drain to the same duct work with some tubing so that it will drain properly. It does a good job of keeping the humidity down so that you don't feel sticky in the bus. I will take some pics of the installation when I get a chance.
Its a great feeling when you can use your bus after all the work you put into it.
Nice pics, great work on your bus, and I like the colours.
we just got back from a 3500kms trip 12 days in our bus, ill post pics on my thread when i have time.
keep up the great work, post pics
Where you guys from? My girlfriend and I are looking to live in a bus this size full time and absolutely love the one you guys picked up! We are searching far and wide right now for a bus but so far have come up empty handed. We are also looking at a paint job similar to yours, but want to do Niagara Blue on the bottom like the old VW buses: https://www.google.com/search?q=niag...IVhlCSCh0buAGy
