    The best looking and most professional looking city – school bus conversion I have seen. My only concern for city buses and school buses is the gearing of the transmission. Most are geared for city traffic and not for highway speeds. Therefore your MPG suffers as well as the engine revs higher and is noisy. Over the road tour coaches make the best conversions. That is why you see Prevost so often as high end conversions.

    Truly a one off conservation of a city bus to motor home.. I can appreciate the 2 yrs of time spent in creating this motor home, as he made use of every square inch available to him, and in great detail…! He took a city bus which a lot of people do not realize how much punishment one of these buses take, and built the ultimate motor home which will more than likely out last any other motor home out on the road today… It may not look the Ritz, but it was built like a brick out house….!

    Normally, I don’t like any kind of bus conversions but I have to say this is really nice. I’m amazed at how many systems this man knows to have been able to accomplish all of this; quite a feat! Not only is this well done, it looks fabulous, too. Excellent job; very well done.

    No self-respecting woman would ever live anywhere near that couch for long.

    Just beautiful traveling home! Just amazes me from the outside it looks just like a citi bus. But when you walk inside the bus the transformation that takes place is just gorgeous! Every room is just unique in it’s own way! I love all the details that went into your home! Thank you for taking us on a tour of your citi bus/home! It was awesome! Enjoy traveling in style with all the comforts of home!?
