Gus is about 12'11" tall (so 13 feet) with all the clutter of the roof. However, the way I designed the sides, the clutter is not very visible from the ground. The sides are integrated/smooth into the front and rear caps allowing the curve of the roof to be hidden and the sides to look similar to a new MCI or Prevost. I wanted to do this so I could have space to integrate my Girard awning into the side verses mounting it outside the side of the bus. Though the sides and caps are smoothed, it gave me enough room to actually mount the Girard above the corner of the roof, giving flush exterior to the side of the bus whne the awnign is retracted. It gives the bus an overall flat side and roof look.
I don't have any blog or any site yet, but I have been considering it as I have thousands of pictures covering everything I've done from my slide construction to my digital systems. I will in the future build a site, but for now I still have a lot to do on Gus. If there is something you'd like to see, or have any questions, feel free to contact me at plnthair(at)gte.net (just replace the (at) with a @ symbol).
Have a great holiday!!!!
