I learn so much from people on this forum, I am glad if I can contribute any useful information.
Water and IceŽ membrane is available at both Lowes and Home Depot, and almost every other building supply business in North America. When I saw it in Lowes the other day, a roll that covers 108 ft.˛ was running about $79. If you are applying it in summer and you can get temperatures inside your bus of around 90°F or more it it will lay down nicely and the asphalt component will become gooey, allowing you to conform easily to the surface of your floor. If you're doing in colder weather I would recommend heating up both the bus and the material before application. It also wouldn't hurt to have something like a linoleum roller to go over it for maximum adhesion.
By the way, when I was a young carpenter many, many years ago, and this product first came out, it often went by its tradename, bituethene, which we quickly turned into bitch-a-thane, because once you peel off the protective backing it is like a terrible kind of flypaper. If you accidentally stick a piece of it to itself you will never get it apart, and likewise, if you stick it to something you didn't intend to stick it to or you install it with air pockets and wrinkles, you'll probably wish you'd never seen the stuff. But on the other hand, once you have it down you can be pretty sure it's doing its job and it is not going to come up. If you have never worked with the stuff before, I would recommend looking on YouTube for some videos about how to install it, which amount basically some tips and tricks for peeling off the backing material at the same time that you're rolling it down.
