Bus opinion needed

Can you guys look at the attached files and give me an opinion.

I originally wanted to turn the micro into a panel, but if the kids are in the back, they won't be able to see a thing.

So should I leave the bus as a 11 window standard or should I add two windows in the back from my delux parts bus?

personal opinion of course, but i was going to go 11 window because of the same kid factor, but you can still have some non-window privacy without the non-GL curtains if you are throwing a z-bed in there.

get a panel van,
I almost welded sheetmetal over the windows in the kombi I had a while back.
I've recently aquired a '62 walkthrough panel, so no windows is better as far as I'm concerned.

Thumbs up

I agree with Zen. When we had a 73 walkthrough bay (made by westfalia)window in the family, it wasnt really cool to wake up and have someone looking at you. Plus no one will actually sit that back except if you are parked layed down the bench and play monopoly (lol). Anyway its your choice

I think Bugsoup said it best. I think 11 windows is plenty for a GL family hauler.

I think the 11 window just looks better. Just my opinion.

Wow, thats 100% for the 11 window. Guess that leaves a little space for a logo later if I need.

Thanks guys, always like your opinion.
