Yer kiids are obviously into the bus....mine are aged 11 and 7 and are massively into buses....they know more than me.....especially my 7 yr old boy, he can't get enough of VWs and we took a bus to Stiffkey in N Norfolk last August and he just loved the camping stuff........

Nooooo window envy, I don't have any interest in for example 23 window buses and in fact prefer panels........they look way cooler and you can sleep in them for days......

I think I understood most of it....you should keep a really detailed record of what you are doing to your bus, maybe a few pics a day....then post it....

I don't think its fully appreciated by some people in the UK that a dry Cali bus is so much more valuable than a wet Euro bus.....
