Maybe I'm just overly sensational, or maybe it had been too long without a shower, but I remember the first shower in my tiny cabin as absolutely glorious. Hopefully you'll feel the same. Keep up the good work.

Shower caulked, curtain rod in.
Med. cabinet in.
Most paneling up.
Fired up the water heater, took less than1/2 hour to reach set temp. (Running through a 15a house to bus circuit)
Today or soon, one more sheet of paneling, some bed base material, trailer hitch convertor and 7 way receptacle. And on and on....

20's in the morning now, does warm to 40's. Bus stays nice with the Buddy on low.

Great looking bus! I see lots of projects that are on my drawing board, that you've tackled. We have a Thomas Built shorty, its on a GMC Savannah frame, so its notas much a bus as yours, and probably doesn't have as much room as yours. Were you able to get anything for your wheelchair lift? I've got one that's now in my garage, and am hoping to pull a few bucks back out of it. I've got big plans for using the very large and very empty space under the rear end to hang gray and black tanks on a heavily bolted strut frame, just need to get some tanks ordered this week. Thanks for all your pics and for the heads up on the seats!

I gave my WC lift to a disabled buddy, we are putting it on his deck so he doesn't need to climb stairs.

Hung a curtain behind the driver's seat and one across the bathroom door.
