Lmao... I am still a big fan of the original with the fuzzy dog van



I am pretty sure this bus is the result of a big yellow bus, a smart car, too much wine, and a broken prophylactic... :icon_rofl:

It has a nice vintage look to it. It shouldn't be too hard to find an AC setup for a 5.9 should it?

I cant find a used a/c compressor at all.....
I have the condensor, drier, and a few random hoses. I just need the compressor.

Looking good!

A question, how did you attach the overhead compartments to the ceiling? I am assuming screws through the roof into the wood. if so, how are you keeping rain/ snow/ slush from getting under the screws and leaking into the bus?

U used "L" brackets.
There are two layers of steel about 2" apart with fiberglass insulation inbetween in the bus. So i dont have to worry about water leaking in, because of the screws on the inside only.

I have a huge roll up awning for it, but i just discovered its broken, so now i have to decide if i can/want to fix it....

Door opener. Pushes the handle just enough to open it.
