As far back as I can remember I’ve always been fascinated with bus conversions.
This mobile cabin on wheels (that used to be a school bus) is now ready for minimalist living and traveling.
How would you like to tour the country in this tiny house on wheels? Or maybe even live off grid in it?
Inside this 1959 Chevrolet Viking short bus you’ll find most of the comforts of home…

Here’s What It Looked Like Before the Conversion:
Alright, Come On In To See What It Looks Like Now…

Design Sketches / Bus Conversion Plans
The renovation was done by Winkelman Architecture group for a client who wanted to use the bus for road trips with the family and as a guest bedroom when it’s parked at home.
So it wasn’t really designed for full time living although some of us can probably pull it off quite comfortably.
This bus conversion was designed to comfortably and safely travel with 12 passengers.
And you can also sleep in it since you can convert seating into two single beds or join them together for one queen bed.
The Short BUS Retro (as it’s been named) even has plumbing (sink and toilet) and power (12v and 120v).
