Here's a nice conversion - price is high though...

I just came across this - I don't know the seller, just thought y'all would like to see the conversion:

Re: Here's a nice conversion - price is high though...

Nice looking but.....
Too much money considering....
Kept far too many of the windows... something I dislike since we stay in campgrounds slotted in between other RVs (but more privacy than the apt we lived in when we first met). We are about maxed out on windows in our bus.

The sleeping quarters would need to be reworked... I don't "do" bunk beds any more...

It needs a paint job because it's.... BEIGE which is as bad as white (I live in a sea of white and beige).

Of course I would "need" to rip the galley out and rebuild to suit me because I "need" a big freezer! Those are "needs" not "wants"... just like I "need" a washer/dryer. At some point I will "need" a dishwasher.... David just isn't cutting it!


I'm just not suited for "ready made"... neither is my pocketbook.

David hates washing dishes as much as I do. He's doing it because I am working and he's not. Sounds fair to me. I just wish he would wash them before we get down to no clean flatware! Upside... no arguing over a dishwasher! I WILL have a dishwasher!


I wonder how they came up with the price? I'm kinda curious as to what our bus will be "worth" once we finish it.

I think 20k is a steal.

Isnt half the fun/joy/pain of making a custom conversion to how YOU want it why most people do this? To me redoing what someone did isnt nearly as much fun?
