I like the idea of a front-mount hitch as a place to mount a number of things - could be a spare tire, could do one of those hitch carriers for a small generator and jerry cans for fuel or water (which would look right at home with your build) - and if you don't have the jeep, you could put it on the front or the back. (Not that it's an off-road rig, but you could always make a winch bracket for the hitch too. . . just because you can!)

Is there somewhere on/in the jeep that you could put the spare for the bus?

Someone with a full-size conversion looked at a window screen held on with magnets (it might have been just the screen wraped/sewn with magnets every few inches along each edge.) Super easy to put up and store, or remove for driving. It might be interesting to try just velcroing around the two windows and putting the screen on the inside of the bus - that way you never have to worry about it while driving. Just un-velcro to open or close the window.

I'll fab up something for her jeep. I need to go sit and stare at my tiny bus for a while and figure out how to make one for it

Question. Since I'm aiming for similar type of bus/build.

What do u do for using restroom (poop)?
Bucket, bag, wipes & everyone out of the bus ?

Not tackled that yet. We thought about a 5 gal, bag lined, bucket toilet. Perhaps a curtain partition for privacy on the road?

Who needs it? Just find a nice tree to lean against. Give it to nature!

Not sure many wives would agree with that.
