Got the first version of the shower mocked up. 5 gal shower bag can hang off the door.

And I did not know if the receiver hitch rack would fit with my custom hitch. It clears by 3 Inches.

great bus!

I just came across your bus thread (so many on this site still to discover!) -- and it's really great. I love the whimsy and creativity that y'all bring to it.

I think I would make some sort of shade or awning to pull out over the rear windows if you are going to shower outside there.

The way the windows are they could reflect quite a show if the lighting happened to be just right. Or wrong depending upon your view point.

Thanks! It really been fun....and theres so much left to do.

Cowlitz, we will figure something out to protect the innocent onlookers. Looking forward to my pvc pipe water tank on the roof. 6" pvc 10 feet long should give me enough water for a couple showers. At camp wife and i can shower with 5 gal if i recall correctly.

Looks like a good cam pattern to work with, don't forget to get an oil pump spin rod tool to prime up the oil system, can't wait to hear it roar !!!

Pulled the jeep on the trailer ok. About 6000 pounds of Jeep and trailer. Would rather towbar to save that trailer weight.

Got a 1991 Ford conversion van passenger side seat for the wife. It has a lever that lets it turn all the way around. That seat has a whole new life now that it can be used to interact with the passengers area. Modified he chevy van seat to my old drivers seat base. Now i have a nice plush seat too.
