Added cruise control and shortened the door handle to add some room on the console. I also added a candle holder I had lying around to toss keys or whatever in. I also added a receiver hitch to tow the jeep and a couple locks to the rear and wheelchair door.

A/C string lights with one bulb inside the shower area for a little extra light. I will add some white duct tape for now and will decide on the final lighting once we get to FL and install the wood ceiling.

I like what you are doing. Where did you buy your bus from? Seems a good price. Keep us posted, lots of good ideas.

Wow! Great work, it is moving along way quicker than mine! I love how you have used your space. What is your curtains? Burlap? I also really like the shower curtain rod! Looks great!

That's looking really fine. Your bus is like the perfect size. Is that an inverter hanging off the side of your fridge?

I got the bus from a farmer that uses them to shuttle farm help around.

External or internal?

Thanks Frochevy. The curtains are the Harbor Freight 4x12 drop clothes. Just wait until they have a coupon and you can get them for next to nothing.

Yes it is. I mounted it there so I can simply unplug the fridge from shore power and plug in to the inverter when we hit the road. I figured that is the easiest way for me not to confuse which outlet is for house current or for inverter current. The microwave will sit on the counter above the fridge so I can do the same for that as well.

Tested out the hitch by towing the Jeep around. It tracked great and the bus didn't have any problems with the weight (at least on flat roads).
