Came across this site when searching what others have done their folding doors up front. Looks like a great place to tap into others ideas and creativity when it comes to converting spaces...so I'm in.
Wife and I have been married just short of 25 years and our kids are grown so we have some new found freedom we are happily dealing with. I've been in the construction biz for about as long and am fortunate to be able to cherry pick jobs now days. Love riding motorcycles (mostly street) and visiting the beach as often as possible...the latter requires a road trip or plane tickets though.
I have recently acquired a 1990 Ford E350 Shuttle Bus that will become a multipurpose vehicle that will serve as shelter, cargo van and sometimes as a retail space. Any modifications need to be modular so transformation to a different use can be fairly easy. It would be nice if I can figure out a way to put the bed over the front cab so that it is always out of the way of other transformations. The challenge there is providing structure to hold it up...particularly in the front of the bubble.
At this point I have decided to go with a clean slate so I have gutted the rear seating, wheelchair lift and removed the inner fiberglass shell. With a little sanding and prep work the outer, structural fiberglass shell should paint up nicely on the inside.
Looking forward to seeing and reading about others peoples rigs.
