Took me 2 weeks to finish, and it was totally worth it, back in the Ham now, gonna polish the rig up and see if I can make some money before I head to the mountains.
I will be damned if this thing does not work like it came from a factory?
This is my second lift that I have designed on a bus, but I am having more trouble than usual. I will figure it out, but I am wondering what resources are out there in the wild. What suggestions do you have?
Added freshwater and grey water tanks under the bus today, and I am ready to start running the plumbing. Hopefully should be ready to roll out in 2-3 weeks, but will I have any gas money?
I have been down this road before, so the process went pretty quickly. Surprising how smoothly the process can go when you have the confidence and experience – trial and error zaps your time and energy quickly.
I met a lady at a recent Skoolie Gathering, and suggested she come up to Ebro to get some help with her plumbing, as my method is a quick and easy method. Ten days later she had a new bathroom, shower enclosure, and a fresh-water and grey-water tank hung beneath her her bus. While none of the plumbing was actually functional, time constraints prevented flowing water. It was cool to see someone else getting closer to getting out on the road.
And I finished most of the kitchen and office structure, along with the closet. Finishing them off in the next couple of weeks, with the rest of the bus. Although I could have gotten SOOO much more done, had I not run into so many obstacles(truck brakes, running out of supplies, etc.) I am very pleased with what I have accomplished in the last 10 days.
Got the seats out today, and dammit it was just about the easiest thing I have ever done in a bus. Pretty much decided to leave the floors as-is too, and simply slap some walls up, a kitchen, shower/toilet, office and bed.
Getting really excited about getting started!
Got the new bus back in Ebro on Thursday, have not done a single thing to it besides pull the dead batteries.
After attending the recent Skoolie Gathering, I was even more anxious to get a bus. One of the attendees told me the secret – bidding on multiple buses at the same time…..and BOOM! Here she is – The CornHusker…straight out of the University of Nebraska motor pool. The plan is to roll up to Tuscaloosa for a funeral Monday, then snatch the nephew for shuttle driver/boredom prevention, and we will head out Mon/Tues. I am really excited about getting started on the conversion, and being mobile once again.
