Need Help WIth my Skoolie

I've got a 1979 CHevrolet 48 passenger schoolbus. I need some help. I want to make something interesting out of it. Mechanically it is solid, runs and drives fine. I was planning to make a camper/RV out of it (but I'm open to other suggestions). I don't want to spend much (any) money on it, but I do have a lot of interesting housing fixtures (and building material) laying around. Any suggestions? I was even thinking of making an event out of the project. I've got a great place to camp, and could feed 15 or 20 people for a week, if enough people wanted to come help me work on it. I'd document the process, and make an iBle out of it: "How to Turn a Schoolbus into a _____."

. What is the status of this project? I've really been procrastinating on putting the Mustang back together and getting to show it off at a bus raising might get me in gear.

It's kinda on hold for now. I've had a death in the family (my grandfather), and I'm looking at a new job. I'll let you know when I get back on track. BTW- I can take you to see a great 66-68 Stang collection, and to a mustang/falcon junkyard, if you ever make it up this way.
. Sorry to hear about your loss and other troubles.
. But a Country Boy ~~can~~ will survive.
. I'd like to see those attractions. I like most old muscle/sports cars, not just Mustangs. My first car was a Mustang, so I do have a soft spot for them, but as long as it pushes me against the seat ...

Truly "My grandpa taught me how to live off the land". He taught me how to hunt, fish, and drive a truck/tractor. I've gotta couple of other projects of my own, that I could use some creative help with. '93 Trans Am,'79 Harley, '76 Grand Prix, '94 Z-28, and a possible Subaru Monster Vehicle. I'll let you know as soon as I make a little headway on my life 'situation'.

What year is it? HP? Miles? Interior? >rambles on and on<

Mobile wood-fired hot-tub, with a flip top. Add a wide-screen, and you've got the ultimate tailgating vehicle, complete with smokestack.

(I know it's impractical, the water would slosh out every time you cornered and start/stopped. So a separate holding tank is needed... :P too complicated.)
hang the tub off the ceiling - then it goes in each direction together with the water and i think it'll slosh less (and its more fun) but its still a problem to drive the bus from within the bath
