Hello again! Video of our bus build and more!!!

I have been a member for a few years, and prior to that I was a long time lurker. Long story short, I started with a 97 Bluebird All American. After 2 years of blood,sweat,tears, and about a 15k investment, our bus was completed. We have travelled a bit in the west, and are currently parked near Monterey Bay California. We have lived in it full time for 2 years. It has functioned better than we ever expected, and we still love it and are quite comfortable. My wife and I, and 3 small dogs have all learned how to function in this small space and love the adventure and challenges this lifestyle has for us.

1997 Bluebird All American
8.3 Cummins with Allison trans
150 gallons fresh water
100 grey
Compost toilet
100lb horizontal propane tank
1200 watts solar on roof (4x300)
2 60 amp mppt controllers
5 220 AH 12 volt sealed batteries
5000 watt msw invertor

Very short video of bus:

If anyone has any questions or comments, please feel free to email or message me. Happy Building!

Beautiful. Thank you, for inspiring.
