Converting a standard mini bus to a camper bed

Just figured out how to convert back to a bed easy, no big build. Mind blown. The bottom flips down, and just found that it has an adjustable clip that holds it down! Also, there peg holes at the top off the seat back I could just insert the front headrests on top to make full length. Just add a cushion, like off my unused futon maybe? Front bench gets in the way, so it would be flipped around the other way, allowing space for a table in the process.

Eureka springs 20th annual vw show and tourcade

So awesome!
Gorgeous Splittie with Louvers up
Beutiful Patina.
Won first place I think in their category.
Ginger has a bad alternator. That is bad for the battery. (only brought one.)  AAA came out and got us the last 20 miles.
Spent a few minutes at the end taking pics of bugs. I had over indulged in the busses.
Ingenious idea for camper bus
I think someone likes the Hogs....

Ginger goes to her first show

Uncle Matt and I escort Ginger to Eureka Springs 20th annual VW show and tourcade. She breaks down 15 miles out ( bad alternator) and again on the return trip, but it was an amazing experience. Lots of gorgeous rides. Here's some pics.
