Their Short School Bus Conversion with an 8-Inch Roof Raise


This couple enjoyed working on yachts for a while until they were inspired to buy a short school bus to convert into their DIY motorhome. They fixed it up and used it on weekends at first, but they grew tired of the “go-go-go” lifestyle and eventually quit their jobs so they could hit the road, enjoying a more relaxed pace of life.

Their short school bus conversion has a beautiful bathroom, plenty of seating for guests (which also doubles as their bed), and a special higher purpose: they use it to foster dogs on the road.
