2. A bus is the right shell for us.
We did quite a bit of research on mobile vehicles and came to the conclusion that a bus was the best option for us to live in. Buses are maintained with scrupulous attention and are generally used for short trips so they have relatively low mileage. Buses are also built with steel framing, unlike most RVs, making them very strong and less likely to be totalled in an accident. A bus would allow us to have a blank canvas in terms of designing the interior this would ensure our ability to maximize the space and functionality. The shell conformed to our lives versus us conforming to it.
