A quick introduction. My wife and I (Amy & Rob) are in Indiana prepparing to convert our new to us 2004 Ford e350 short bus. it was painted green DIY style clearly. Has some minor rust spots and will need sanded and painted or wrapped. Im no mechanic but it seems to be it great shape however it is the fabled 6L engine Ive heard such rave reviews about. (sarcasm oozes over) with about 177,00 miles on the diesel engine. Its been converted partially on the interior.
bolted seat belt bench seat
water pumping to sink
gas stove installed
Wood flooring (only insulation is a thin rubber mat)
thin panel insulation from floor to the bottom of windows
deep cycle batteries
some led lighting
So some work to be done for sure but I have plenty of time. As most I PLAN to do a cheap conversion as its just a way to live life with less restraints. My wife travels 8 months of the year with formula racing and Im disabled and dont work but I along with the help of my soon to be in college daughter run a nonprofit we started a few years ago. In fact the bus will mostly serve as a way for me to travel with my wife when she works and also to spread donations via our charity GamingTheGreenway dot Org nationwide rather than just in Indian, Illinois, and Ohio. Pretty exciting (yet extremely busy) time for the Greenways. Anyways glad this site is here, great stuff. Hopeful to meet and greet with some fellow Hoosiers as it gets warmer and our build gets going.
