Seating area



Various gages

View down the hallway with the Kids bunk beds on the side



View fro the masterbedroom towards the front


Bathroom, kind of hard to get this in a picture without a wide angle lense.

Sweet build. Good to see a fellow Canadian touring the country side in skoolie.

This post will bring this thread back to the top so some of our new members can find it.

Well except my bus has been sitting for a couple years now not turning a wheel as we moved to an area with only ferry access. And as we all know BC Ferries fairs are a little high to take a 40' bus on just for a weekend trip.

Re: Swinada's Bus Conversion progress...

Hey do you guys have any idea how much you've spent in total on your bus? We're trying to talk our parents into getting a bus and they loooooove yours! My father in law guessed about $200k!
