Re: Our American School Bus in Sheffield, England.

Just used our bus for a street festival in Barnsley.

Have done a few more improvements including interior doors and full fit out of toilet/shower/hot water system etc.

Re: Our American School Bus in Sheffield, England.

Really nice decor.

Is that a incinerating toilet?

What is the covering on the walls and floor?

Re: Our American School Bus in Sheffield, England.

The toilet is a porcelain 'drop through' type so when flushed the waste drops through the floor into a large tank slung under the bus... there is then an electric pump out. We went for marine systems with pressurised water system etc. The guys who did the work are boat builders based in Bradford, England.

Sorry, forgot to add that the floor and walls were covered in a safety flooring sheet material and we made the bathroom into a wet room with a shower and drain in the floor (into a tank).

Our bus at the Glastonbury Festival last year... The stage ended up being so large that it got a little lost but as a green room and production area it worked really well.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I have to say thanks for the pics. Your bus is one of my top 2 inspirations for my build.

A really, really nice looking bus.

+1

Love the interior!
The colors aren't my particular taste, but really liking the layout and bathroom design.

I've even thought of a ship's door design before I settled on sliding doors.
