Our favorite aspect of being on the road and living in the bus is meeting people we wouldn’t have the opportunity to get to know otherwise. The bus is unique enough that people are drawn to approach it, pop their head in to say hello and chat for a while.3

    Beautiful job! One of the best I have seen. I love the light coloured interior, hardly looks bussy at all. Nice that you were able to keep all the original bus windows too! Being the geeky type, I would just like to know some of the technical stuff , like electrical stuff and water system. And you did it all yourself!! the best part!!

      This couple has an excellent social media presence. I follow them on Instagram and Facebook, I LOVE their posts and especially their videos.

    All that kitchen, and no place to eat!

    • Avatar Jen

      They have the whole outdoors to eat in! 🙂

  • Avatar Ruth

    I think you did a wonderful job, it’s beautiful.

  • Avatar Annette

    That looks like loads of fun – very cozy too. Happy trails and be safe out there!

  • Avatar Patrick

    Is there a porta-potty hidden somewhere in that beautiful bus??

    • Avatar Sondra Peters-Kearney

      yeah it’s behind the doors with mirrors next to the bed

  • Avatar Mary

    Where do you keep your clothes, and what kind of heat do you use?

  • Avatar Sheila Plourde

    Love this. Inside is very nice. Comfortable feeling the photographs give. Great job!

  • Avatar Marsha Cowan

    I love this bus sooo much!!

  • Avatar Patty

    I like this bus redo. The color & wood treatment is very nice. Very well done!

  • Avatar Sheila Plourde

    I love this!! Something you both should be so proud of. I imagine there is a place to eat in there. Clean and has style.

  • Avatar Karen Blackburn

    Really well done but I would need a table and chairs (meals, tea/coffee, work) instead of a second couch. You can’t always eat or work outdoors especially in the cold or wet, and if they are travelling the country they will meet plenty of both. Still a very good conversion though and hey, we all have different priorities and wants/needs.
