Re: 2nd story bus by Phil Feinstein
Post New Message Lupis domesticus? Nomaticus? So a household wild creature who likes to wander and live away from home? That's a Triple! I love it!

Take a look at as well as They both have examples of raising rooflines for busses as well as some other examples of raised roofs. I like the idea of epoxied fabric, but keep in mind that a resin or fiberglass or epoxy is brittle and if the framework you put it on flexes, it will crack. You might want to consider something more along the lines of a thin metal lamination or shingles (wood or Asphalt).
I agree with the mentality that designing a moving home is like designing a home that will be subjected to earthquake forces constantly, so I suggest keeping that in mind.

Hope that helps!
