Would love to see a pic of the inside without the cover on. Is it an aluminum frame holding up the cover ?

They are the factory optional fitment, springs inside and you fill them with grease. You can lock them on a highway with the linkage you can see.

Have you considered simply starting with a nicer bus? I don't know what your skills are, but the race is easier if you can see the finish line. If you are not a runner, don't start off doing a marathon.
