95' Thomas "The Knight Bus"

Although i am not new to this website this is my first bus conversion. My wife and I have been wanting to do this for about 10 years and we finally have the means and time. Our sun just turned 1 and we are going to travel and live full time in our bus!

we bought a 95 Thomas Saf-T-Liner ER not sure if i can post a link to the site we bought it from or not but they were awesome! the even helped convert the title to a motor home and with seat removal!

we are super excited to get this show on the road. although the name is not set in stone yet.

we are based in Florida just north of Tampa, looking for property in the smokey mountains. and hope to be able to travel all over the country in or new bus!

Sweet! No short bus for that boy. He's running with the big dogs!

Congratulations and welcome!

Congrats on the bus!
Here in FL all one has to do is submit a simple affadavit to change the title to rv.
What's the story of your bus' name? Did you go to UCF?

We're having a roof raising party on the 10th of feb if you wanna come out and meet up with some of us.

No it's actually the name of the bus from Harry Potter. (That's why it's it set in stone) but yeah not sure if the bus will be done by then but we would love to come out. Where will it be?

Rural Apoka/Sorrento. Bus totally NOT required!

I've never been into fictional literature too much, aside from a few classics. I guess that's why the name went right over my head. There are some certain "groups" who call themselves "knights" and was really hoping yall weren't with them!

Seats out finally

The seats are finally out. And we made a rough floor plan. Started parting out the diner rv and things are moving along. Poor old girl has seen her better days.
