Daniel was looking for a vehicle to take with him on outdoor travels during the weekends — something he could toss muddy gear into and not care. A late-night eBay bid made him the owner of this 2005 Econoline bus — and after a cross-country trip to retrieve it, he suddenly found himself caring a lot more about his build-out!
He used tons of reclaimed materials to create a fully-functional home on wheels, including a soon-to-be-completed bathroom, a Murphy bed, and a large kitchen/counter space. Enjoy the video tour below!
