Hello! I am about to start on a new adventure; converting a four window Chevy/Thomas 23 passenger into a basic camper. This sight came highly recommended and I look forward to tips and ideas for my first attempt at this sort of thing.

Lots of very adept practitioners of conversions here as well. Enjoy the ride!

Hi and Welcome Aboard
That rig reminds me of the camper my stepdad had when I was a young teenager. We'd go out motorcycle riding in the desert for a couple days and just have a blast. It was really basic...maybe 2 overhead lights, a tiny sink, a closet with a porta-potty and an icebox type refer. Those were the days....

You've got the most important thing, at least: a great name.

right on, short buses are fun!
i like the maneuverability and can go & park anywhere!
we do a lot of state parks and park under a tree LOL
i kept mine dry & light.
i dont have to winterize, under weight, decent gas mileage & less stress on everything!

with a bus you can do whatever you want!
there is a lot of good help & ideas in this forum.

enjoy the build
