Default Hunting RV

Hi All Happy Hunting!!!! Be Safe!!!!
Thanks for checking out my site everyone!

Greetings everyone!
I am new to this site and was hoping for some help.
Me and my hunting partner have found a military bus and we are turning it into a RV/travailing hunting camp. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can buy some camo window covering. Also if anyone else has done the same we would really like some tips.
You can check it out at http://www.2womenwhitetaildeerhunting.com
Thanks!

Hi everyone! we just got back and I put up some more Pictures of the stuff we scored on this weekend.
I am not sure what size motor it is...but I know it is a diesel and it is an International, we have looked all over the motor for something that says what size it is. But the guys tell me it's big enough to do what we need.

Great project. Looks like it's coming along nicely. I've had the same idea, but never done anything about it. Only thing I'd suggest is try to keep weight down where you can.

Yeah, looks real nice. Nice work, too.

I would suggest one thing if I may. Now that the wheel wells are boxed out, continue the box up to maybe window height for a couple of table tops with storage underneath.

Hey Uncle Matt
We are putting in2 sets of bunks and a bathroom. The one bunk will go over one wheel well and the other wheel well will be a closet. We have 5 campers/RV to rip out all the other stuff we need. Oh and did I mention this is being built by 2 women. The guys we hunt with are very jealous. We got invited to go hunting in northern Minnesota, but we have to "fend" for our selfs...so we went out and bought a bus. For only $600.00...that was a steal and its a automatic!!!
I hope everyone will keep checking in, we are going up there this weekend and work on it some more.
I usually add pictures when we do more stuff.

Hey anyone know where I can find a back door to this thing?

And keep giving your ideas...its not set in stone.

What a cool project! Looks like its coming along good ladies. Did you girls insulate the walls at all? Also what are you doing for heat? Keep the updates and pictures coming, I can't wait to see it finished.

Hi Everyone!!!
Hi gmil,
We are now in the process of putting in the pluming and running the elec. Then we will be doing the insulation. Then we will put up the paneling, building of 2 bunks and putting the kitchen together. Whew...still more to do.
But it's coming along nicely.
Its gonna be cool!!!!
