  • Converting bus - looking for advice/suggestions

    Greetings. I am in the process of converting a bus for a year long trip around North America with my family. I'm interested in installing a small form factor PC in the coach to act as a multi-function system providing internet access, multimedia (music, movies, etc), and games. I'm also considering adding GPS and rear backup camera to the table as well.

    My pie in the sky concept would have a small (touch)screen next to the driver and another in the sitting area with a large monitor for watching movies, playing games, etc.

    I'd like to know if there are any others out there that have done a similar project and what works or what doesn't.

    I'm also considering how I'll stay connected on the road. Cellular data service would work in a pinch, but I likely wouldn't have coverage in Canada and Mexico from what I've read. The stuff I've heard about satellite is that it's fast (when it's available), but pricey.

    I'd appreciate any feedback you have to offer.
