Title: Bus Interior FLoor Plans
Post by: BJW on May 12, 2006, 09:52:46 AM
Hey Guys,

The picture topic is a great thing because we've seen a lot of great pictures of members buses.  I realize that people probably don't have as many interior pictures, but thought maybe we could have a topic that was specific to interiors and interior floor plans ideas.   Would there be any interest in this?  I think it would be great to see what others have done on the inside, even if thier interiors are not yet finished.  My interior is not done yet, but I am following a floor plan design that I developed to stay on track.  What do you guys think????

Good idea, although I don't have my floorplan sketched out.  I'd have to find some software probably that could  help with it.  Just pictures are too difficult to tell how its laid out.

Sounds like a good idea!

I know going to rally's has helped me in my planning and not everyone can get to these.

Having some layouts would be nice to compare and see where others have managed to squeeze in more space

Here's a copy of my floor plan to get things started.  The exterior sides depicted were an old drawing that I generated when I first got Gus, and it has changed drastically since (as you can maybe tell in the pictures I posted on the other thread.  However, the floor plan has pretty much stayed the same.  The only differences are the frig is a side by side versed the originally intended single door frig and the dinette is a telescoping wide 2 person or narrow 3 person wide seat design when the slide is open and a wide 1 person or narrow two person wide dinette when it's closed.  I hope this helps.
