What was the cost of your project and was that including everything from plumbing, electrical, appliances, and furniture? Haven't got a bus yet but will soon.

Looking at comming in around $15k total. Although in the future that will push closer to 20k when we add more to it.

I'm looking at a similar budget, but I got a ways to go.

I am currently at 5,400 looking at coming in around 8-10k total and realistically down the road more like 15k on project and 5k on the "did that just break?" fund.

im finished... just over $20k. however, if i added solar or an inverter, well... each would add another 5k.

if you buy new stuff, it adds up fast. fridge, furnace, water heater, stove all cost about $1k each, then batterys, countertops, sinks, toilet.......lots of money.

every one thinks they'll do it cheaper. good luck!

I'm probably about $8k in (including the original price of the bus at $3k)... will likely have $10k in by the time I'm done

I'm guessing 35k. The cost of batteries and solar panels at time of purchase may make it +/- 10k
