Greetings & Welcome!

I prefer buses because they're closer to move in ready.  Just remove the seats, maybe throw some carpet in, then move your new interior in.  Sure beats building everything from scratch.  I also really enjoy all the windows for both the ventilation and the view.  Nasty weather can be quite enjoyable when snuggled up nice and warm inside, and watching it from the comfort of home.  Snows can be especially beautiful.  The lack of the great views, due to a lack of windows, severely wounded my enjoyment until I upgraded to a window van again. 

I find starting with a vehicle that was designed for the comfort and enjoyment of it's passengers to begin with is a win-win situation.

Good Luck & keep us posted!

I'm the same way, Dan. I simply need windows. I'm not necessarily claustrophobic, but I feel a lot better when there are windows. Especially in the long run.
