Well, each bus adventure will have it's own needs and priorities
but I guess the expression of our design will have some value,
either in solving an issue or helping others with different concerns
recognize and/or avoid issues of their own.
While indeed I should (and at some point will) take some snap shots, the basic layout
of the bus we have lived in for years with our (can't count that high ) cats
it looks sorta like this textual layout
======[Bi-folding dutch door]====
| Sink |walkway | stove |
|Toilet |walkway | fridge |
| TV /bed / living area |
Our bus features a left side door at the rear
which is used for storing 80lbs of propane (4 5gal cans)
Above that space is the end of the bed and above that
on a cantalieavered shelf is the TV , internet , Pirate TV box , etc
Under the bed is a compartment for food storage,
12 deep cycle marine batteries,
40 amp battery charger, tiny (600 watt) inverter
On the wall forward to back between the fridge and the living
area on the starboard side is the catalytic heater.
This week we are working on a (wood gasifier) to run our generator
and maybe the bus itself. Calling it a wood gasifier is somewhat mis-leading
as it can use a wide variety of carbon based fuels, and as a technology
has been extreamly popular in both WWI and WWII with many parts of the
world still using it. The intitial notes on the project can be found at
"Primus" (The name of the bus) has served us well for a long time
in several climates/locations and we expect it will do nothing but
get better over time.
I could have had a bigger bus for half the cost , but it would not
have been half as good a result.
