I love all type of creative and innovative designs and when I ran into this awesome bus from New Zealand I just had to share it with you.
First off, it has just about everything you need including a very spacious kitchen which I think they designed wonderfully.
It has a modern design with a real taste of New Zealand in it, the pictures really make me want to be inside and it looks like the furniture/appliances give an awesome vibe to it.
I encourage you to take a look for yourself down below:
I love how they even have a jet ski to take with them. Ultimate adventure package.
Interior of this New Zealand Bus Converted Tiny House
The bed is one of my favorite parts because you don’t have to climb up or down a ladder to get to a loft. It’s simply a bedroom area like in most motorhomes. Notice the cabinet storage above along with the speakers.
The couch looks like it can fit several people if you decide to come inside and watch a movie together even though I would much rather travel in the bus and head out to cool spots to camp and enjoy the outdoors. Also it looks like there might be enough room to add a flat screen if you wanted to. But if you’ve got a computer in there already, why have both..

One of the best bus conversions I have seen. Love the use of windows hence light. Also, no clutter. Love it 🙂
“Groovy, Baby! It’s Shag-a-rific!”, said in my best Austin Powers voice. 😉
very airy and well done, provides an open feeling, like it.
However couldn’t figure out if the windows are tinted and double glazed otherwise it may get quite hot inside.
Hey, have you guys heard about the dumpster house? I was surprised I heard about it elsewhere. This van/bus conversion is a wonderful one though, and quite lovely.
Um, this might seem stupid but…there appears to be 2 different interiors going on there: pic #2 & #5 has white & tan (possibly leather) upholstered couch & dining seats with a white dining table; while others have like a green velour upholstery & greenish table; they however have other things in common, such as kitchen & living room storage, the mirror shaped like new zealand on the door that I suspect hides the bathroom. So, are they before & after pics? If so, which was before & which after. I honestly find both styles appealing for different reasons.
I love the simplicity of the design, it has all the necessities without being overcrowded. I’m also impressed with how much storage they’ve fitted in. There was a show in the UK that showed a conversion of (I believe that was a Bedford) bus into a holiday home that wasn’t driveable, but, while it was nice, I think they either tried to fit too much in or just designed it wrong because they didn’t have space for a bathroom in there, not even a loo (the guy presenting suggested putting a loo where the driver’s seat had been, but they wanted to preserve the steering section etc) and it looked a lot more cramped than this looks.
I love the bed area, I would have made it so that you could sleep length ways rather than width across the bus and also maybe would have put up a curtain so that it could section it off for privacy from the rest of the bus, especially for when it’s sleeping kids too. They appear to have 2 children, I suppose one sleeps on the converted dining seats and the other on the couch, I wonder how the parents manage if the kids go to bed before them. Oh, on second look it seems like there’s another seating/bed? section at the front (behind the driver’s seat?).
My parents have a touring caravan that has bunk beds that form from two seats facing each other and a flap down bunk, they have a curtain that comes round to give them a little privacy & make it easier to put younger kids to bed earlier without being disturbed, however, their old caravan had a sliding/pocket door that came across as the section ran across the back of the ‘van rather than the side, which was much more effective.

I noticed the differences as well, perhaps it is 2 different busses. Anyway I really like the design and would love to see the bathrooms. I wonder, with all of the windows, how it feels on hot days.
New Zealand has a strong House Bus/Truck Culture. I came up with the Expandable Wider Tiny House Concept. Using a Matchbox/Drawer Idea. When Parked up the Side walls roll out like a covered Drawer. ..I have Seen Many New Housetrucks using this idea. Aisle stays the same but either side of the Aisle the “Box” Drawer Slides out Almost Doubling the Inside space.Then when you Move You Push the “Drawers” in and “Lock” in place.and the vehicle /home is normal width again.it would suit Tiny Homes that were Wanting Temp or Extra Space .You could use small Wheels,or Sliders under +pull out Channels and Acrow Props for extra Stability when Fully opened.
I’m always curious as to what is kept in all the storage space; what is considered to be essential.
If you are going to convert a bus this it the way to do it. Open plan. Anything else just becomes dingy and cramped.
They did a great job right Glen? Thanks!
