Do you like the layout on this one? Looks like it could comfortably hold a bunch of people if you wanted to host a party inside. I sort of like it and it looks CA legal under 40'.

The lower bunk could also be used for seating people if you had a large group of people inside and all other areas will filled to capacity, and it sleeps 8 if you put 2 in the bed, one in each bunk, one on each couch, one in the diner and one in the overhead.

1. Could you put 3 bunks in the same area and still use the lower or middle one for seating? Is there enough room for such layout?

2. How much do you think it cost to build, the conversion and the used chassis?

....never heard of a Moen generator?...off shore?...insulation is questionable with all that HVAC. Is this a Powerhouse or one of the knock offs that are using the same name?-did Doug design and build it? Exterior looks plain vs inside -that is why I ask....Doug usually puts a lot of design graphics and tweaks in his stuff....he as ahead of the rest by a mile or 10 years when he does a coach.....I'd dicker the price a lot as nothing is moving right now-though some of the high line unites are still being built.........looks interesting though-color choice and design of the interior is interesting.....I'd bite! ....geofkaye

Geofkaye, this conversion is from Powerhouse Conversions not Powerhouse Coach. I've never seen a Powerhouse Coach on any other chassis than Volvo.
