    I love buses! This bus is nicely designed and looks easy to inhabitat. The wood is very pretty and I like the way it is trimmed around the window shape. The pull out table is clever, too. Couple of quick questions; how do you ventilate the space? Do all the windows open, or is there a roof vent? Is there AC or fans? It’s a nice home and the perfect size for a bus home. Hope it sells for you soon.

    Thought I would add one more comment about gas mileage while I was at it. I doubled the mileage on my short bus by using a gasoline detergent for deisel engines. This one is gasoline, so you would add a gasoline detergent to the tank when you fill it up with gas. I used the detergent every other tank which kept the engine clean and running well and doubled my mileage for the bus, but deisel buses do better on mileage as a rule anyway because deisel engines are made to run long distances. The same is true of my GMC truck, though. Using gasoline detergent in the tank doubled it’s mileage plus some, so I highly recommend this stuff. Some brands are better than others, so try a few different ones and see which give you the better results. My favorite so far is Lucas brand. However, I am learning that there is now Top Tier gas stations that sell gasolines that already have detergent additives in it that do the same thing (This has nothing to do with octane levels). Here is a link to a site that explains it better. Keeping the engine clean helps protect many other systems as well. This also means that driving a small bus can actually be easier than you thought on gas mileage. I’m just saying. . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm14Cw1pt24
