This is a raised roof school bus conversion that’s built like a residential home.
Jim & Debbie retired about 2 years ago to get their skoolie up and ready for full time travel.
I think you’ll really like this bus conversion and the owners have done a great job of explaining how they did it in the video below. Enjoy!

Retired Couple’s Raised Roof School Bus Conversion That They Built Like a Residential Home

It’s designed and built like an apartment.
Full-size appliances and the raised-roof really helps with the spaciousness.
Looking out from the bedroom, the doors really make you feel right at home.
It’s loaded with rooftop solar panels t0 increase self-sufficiency.
Little things like this make it homey, too.
The window here was actually recycled from a vehicle. How awesome is that?

This is beautiful! Cleverly thought out. Video is great. They used their heads with the solar, skylight and raising the roof. I would need a huge storage for all of my cameras and lenses, tripods…. Would be taking pics like mad. Rainbows today. Truly enjoyed this.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!! I wish I was half as creative. I would love to live on something like this.
Thanks, Cindy, and me too! I wish I had skill and creativity like that!
Does that washer REALLY use 31 gallons of water? I find that Extremely high. – even the turbo wash using 15-17 gallons of water seems really high.
I too have a full size keyboard. I have a very similar seating/eating counter to yours. Just below the top is mounted a set of full extension drawer slides, with a 3/4 inch plywood x 1 foot shelf mounted at the back of the slides. The keyboard is mounted on this with rivet nuts and 4 bolts going into the bottom of the keyboard. When not in use, it pushed all the way to the wall, and doesn’t get in the way of knee space. When we want to use it, it pulls out and we sit at a computer chair with adjustable height.
I love buses!! This one is so beautiful! Bright and airy and warm and inviting at the same time.
do u have any idea how much money u have invested in the JOY bus?? I think u did it w/ a labor of love, Have fun and enjoy your life
I love your bus! It is quite a bit larger than I need, though my cats might disagree. Just wanted to let you know I have seen your video two or three times, and it always thrills me to see how beautiful your mobile house is! It is obvious that you enjoy living in it and traveling in it. Thanks for sharing!
Remarkably build ! Would love to meet up with you guys . Will definitely be following you . We have a 2000 Damon Intruder that we love .
I am curious to know what the weight of the bus fully loaded with fuel and then the weight of all the internal make over along with the maximum weight of the axles on the bus can legally handle.
