Make a video when you do it!

Any way you feel will work, probably will work.

I just used four pieces of all-thread and some nuts.

Whatever gets er done, I say go for it.

Roof lift

I considered everything the widow maker jacks floor jacks the all thread but then my new englander kicked in and I remembered how they pulled the large boats out for dry dock and it was my eureka moment we've went from going with a two foot six lift to nearly a three foot six lift the center of gravity is going to be way off but it's not going to be a major issue first off with the 6.6 new Holland and second not in no real highway miles leap frogging national parks cross country to Maine

How tall is it going to be, overall? Seems like you'll be well over 13 feet tall. Depending on your overall height now that could even be 14+.
Seems pretty tall for that kind of travel, but chase your dreams!

After closer consideration of materials and more measurements we've decided on final decision of 2' 7" we're recladding the bus in t111 thin siding which means we need an exact measurement of eight feet from bottom of rain lip at top where windows used to be to bottom edge
