    What a fun vehicle/home this is! The person/people who own this must have a blast when they are on the road.

    Lovingly crafted, evocative of 1950 campers that were crafted with care and loads of wood paneling. <3

  2. For sale?

    Is it for sale? I’m a student and I love the out doors and to travel this would be perfect! If not who ever owns this must have a blast!

    Now I know what I want to do in retirement. Buy a bus and convert it to a traveling home.

    I’m normally NOT a fan of “schoolies.” the majority of them look like projects gone wrong, with little attention to details; but this one raises the bar for the next generation of us dreamers; especially with what they have done with such a SMALL bus…. I too need to dig out the peace medals and beads….

    great job!!
