Teen Converts Old School Bus into $5600 Off-Grid Motorhome

This teen converts this old school bus into a $5,600 off-grid motorhome.

From the outside, you’ll notice the traditional yellow paint has been covered with navy blue and the teen named it the “magic bus.”

When you go inside, you’ll find an open floor plan with a desk, bench seat, table area, refrigerator and a sofa bed. The home runs on solar power.

    That looks like a good size for living in and traveling. It should be able to park in most parking spaces while giving the owner a decent amount of living area in there. Drivability? What’s this bus handle like when driving it? Solar powered means they won’t have to park near electrical outlets.

    I love this ! Not because it’s a remarkable build but because it’s so refreshing to see a young person doing something unconventional & shooting for some independence. Eight days to build it, cool. Just grab some lumber, some apple crates, some fasteners, & have at it. Build what you think you need, you can always modify it in the future. Don’t have to depend on roommates. For what he has in the bus, he couldn’t rent a place for 1 year. This bus is gonna teach him valuable lessons & he has a mobile pad to boot. Way to go !

    I don’t have time with my crazy work schedule to comment on everything is this blog, as much as I would like to, but anytime a teen takes this much initiative to do something this creative and useful, it just has to be commented on. Great job! Keep us posted of anything else that you do to it in the future, or any adventures you have in it. Thanks!

    Nice that you finally have that bus and that your intentions are in the right direction…kudos to you…seriously
    Please do not take this the wrong way, nor personally as I only wish to share my thoughts to the result of your reno to the most important feature…that bus.
    I can only assume you wish to make this bus look as good inside as as does on the outside, correct?
    Get your family/friends together and create your best intentions of turning the interior into something that you can take your Gal into feeling proud of what you truly are capable of achieving.

    Great Job! This young man knows what he wants in life and the value of money. I remember when in my undergraduate and masters how expensive it was. Love the fact that he recycled to build the inside. Since he is in college, he has the availability of using the gym showers. Love his companion GSD.
