You would not believe how nice this mattress is – definitely the most comfortable bed we've ever owned.

One of the best things we installed! Fantastic keeps the bus nice and cool with a constant breeze.
Does what it's supposed to do, and not much else. Would be better if Alyssa hadn't installed backwards.

These heavy duty swing arms let us pull the monitors out during work hours and stow them while driving.

Perfect pair to the Oxygenics Sprayer.

This is a great addition to the cockpit to keep the driver cool without AC!

You never know when someone around you will do something stupid – and in a bus, it's good to have a record that you were doing the right thing.

We removed our original railing and added this shiny new one instead.

We used this hose inside the bus, to connect the black pipe (outside propane plumbing) to our appliances.
Mr. Heater Horizontal Vent Propane Two Stage Regulator
