Assume not April foolssssssssssssssss
Two comments on your generator video, first, really enjoying them:
1. I would mount in front if you can. If possible, put on a slide. Makes maintenance so much easier. Both my diesel pushers had them in the front.
2. As far as the spare, I carried an unmounted tire in my previous diesel pusher. I could not handle a fully mounted tire. Plus, the lug nuts are torqued to 450 lb-ft.
Maybe another consideration could be generator over-heating. We frequently park overnight in Mesquite on our trips to Powell and some nights are pretty hot and we have the A/C going. I will slide the generator out the front for more air circulation.
My Phaeton has two 500 lb rated load ball bearing slides per side, so 1000 lbs per side. You can find on the Tiffin site and they are only $50 each.
This! The front one works hard due to heat transfer from windshield. It’s tough to keep front area cool.You might want to get 1 more ac if not 2 more... 3 minimum, 4 on a 45' bus would be better.
My parents have a 42' bus and with 3 ac's kicking on 110 heat or in a humid area it's working hard.
These guys showed up today. 2x 15.5k btu units. I'll be super excited to move forward with putting the generator in the bus along with some AC so I can work on it nice and cool these next few months. We will be putting one split between the back bedroom and the bunks, and then a forward unit. The bathroom wont have anything unless we find that we'd need a third smaller unit. These have soft start caps built in, but no heat pumps as we will have diesel heating available.

You are still working on trim? Isn't your first trip planned for next month in june?
Dude, stop being a dick. He obviously meant June 2022. You aren't going to build a 45 foot coach from scratch only working on weekends in 6 months. That's a multi year project. He won't even have those walls painted by next month, let alone done and ready to use.
We have about 3 videos waiting. We are going to do a couple small trips to work out bugs end of June. Then we have like a two week gap which gives us two weekends to fix/change stuff and then we have a large trip all the way to Boston and back over four weeks.
I think a breakfast bar would be easy since no slides to open up space
helped the wife install the grass cloth onto one of our dividing walls. I think it’s a good look and we are going to apply it to the rest of the busses interior walls. It’s an actual stitched and woven grass type material not just some vinyl sticker like we found at other places.

Can you share source for the wall covering? Been contemplating what to do with old cloth wall paper in my coach. Was leaning towards just covering the slide out wall with white formica. This looks like it would be easier and a bit more stylish and worth looking into.
Dig the big windows the bus provides! Might hurt inside storage but I like it.
