Pink Floyd Bus

I started my conversion project a few months ago.. I have been juggling my conversion project with the restoration of a 1740's colonial in MA, so things have been taking longer then originally anticipated, but however slow we are going things are starting to look good. I would estimate we are about 50% of the way finished at this point..

Re: Pink Floyd Bus

Bought the bus in Warwick, RI... New England winters can be a little tough on a skoolie..

Re: Pink Floyd Bus

A rendering I made to help me visualize the end product.. I drew this before finding the bus and somehow knew to draw it as a 97 Chevy.. I guess this little bus was just meant to be.. I already own the teardrop with the vehicle tent.. It has been appropriately named "The Treehouse"

Re: Pink Floyd Bus

I know its not a skoolie, but it is definitely an important part of my camping setup and is to be in tow behind my short bus. So I figured a picture was in order. The photo was taken by a photographer at a large music festival (Camp Bisco) last year in 2013. An estimated 15,000-20,000 were in attendance for the long weekend. This little guy gets ALOT of attention!
