    Alex,

    Thank you for showing us these van/bus conversions.
    With all the trailers floating around, I think we sometimes forget that there are alternatives.
    Really liking this one, too.
    …now I’m jonesing for a motorhome….=)

    A very good conversion really suitable for full time living . Great kitchen, bathroom and personal areas by putting elevator bed.

    This is one of the best bus conversions I have seen here ! Looks very “House like” and not bussy, Well done!

    I always take a quick look at the pictures first and I thought for sure this was done by a company that does bus conversions. I was so surprised to find that they did it themselves. Absolutely beautiful. 😍
