    Thank you!!

    We've only taken it on one big trip, from Arkansas to Colorado. The best was got was 13mpg, the worst was 9mpg, but we spent a week on the road and camping and the entire cost for a week was $500 for fuel and $9 for one taco bell pit stop...lol

    The passenger sits on the couch in our bus. The seat belt laws vary from state to state, but in our state, only the front passengers are required to wear seat belts, where there are some states that require all passengers to wear seatbelts.

    We paid $4850 for the bus and put about $6000 into it including everything from fixing a few things with the engine to solar, all inclusive with lumber and materials. So we have right around $11,000 in it total.

    Our total cost including the cost of the bus was around $11,000. We did it all completely ourselves, so there was no labor obviously, but it took us 3 months of working almost every night after work to do it. As far as weight is concerned, the GVWR of our bus is 14,000lbs i believe, but i would say we are probably only pushing around 9-10,000lbs around, but i haven't weighed it.

    I apologize! That is a typo, and i have corrected it! We do have a small 15 gallon grey water tank mounted under the bus directly under the sink. I dont have any pictures handy, but you can get a better idea of what it looks like from the back-forward in this video: https://youtu.be/xGoVrEisUak
