That's looking quite spectacular overall. Special appreciation for the cup holders.

Sorry it's been a while. I was completely overwhelmed by snowmaking that I really didn't do much. Here's what's new.

I suffered my first casualty of a hard brake.

So I bought a new one and finally made that shelf for it I've been procrastinating about.

Put up a coat rack. It's right above the stairs so it's going to be good for hanging wet stuff like bathing suits.

Made a compartment for my tools and put a backpack rack on it.

We encountered the brunt of winter

I installed a propane tank underneath (I forgot to take a picture) and bought a cat heater. This thing keeps the bus nice and toasty. It's a Olympian wave 8.

We made some curtains

Installed two fans too for summer time.

Painted the oar with the Antiguan flag in honor of my friends that rowed across the atlantic. https://www.teamantiguabarbuda.com/

we got our cushions too!

Everyone's comfy now

I added a shock for the couch too so it opens on its own. Makes it a lot easier to get in and out of.

Cats are (claimed to be) the most energy efficient. Glad to hear it's keeping you comfy.

You put a cup holder in already. Ok, I'm interested.

Got the backup camera going..

Also got the speakers and head unit working. We spent the last couple weeks in Park city because my friend was visiting from florida. I tested out the projector while we were up there too. Can't wait to make a sheet and dial it in. We're heading to steamboat springs tonight for a week.

So we're heading back out on the road in 3 days. I'm buttoning up the last of the projects and organizing all our crap. The only thing left to do is go through the engine and change all the fluids/grease points.

Since the last update I finished up all the wiring and put the dash back together.

Used some eyehooks to get the surfboards in.

Made a shower platform to stand on. Keeps us out of the mud.

I just need to load up my tools and gear and he's all buttoned up and ready to go.

OH! and by the way, I saw my old van the other day. They put a high top on it, got rid of the roof rack we built and put nerf bars on it.... :\

For a second I thought you had the shower platform installed in the floor of the bus and I thought "Well how the hell do you keep it cool or heated with that big hole in the floor. Then I realized that pic just shows where you store the outside shower platform, correct?
