Hi from the Pilbara Western Australia

I am in the process of transforming a bus into a home and here for some ideas and hopefully share some.

Hot damn! Welcome! Post some pictures - of pretty much anything; we have no idea of what Pilbara looks like.

The tire configuration, under-bay storage capacity, and air conditioner of your bus are the stuff of dreams. Don't tell me the body's aluminum, too...

Bus was used on a school run in rural Victoria then Western Australia moving Fly in/Fly out miners.
Yes, a pretty good base to start building our future home with some of the great space saving ideas I have seen on these forums.

I love that aluminum bullbar. Wish somebody in the US made those for my bus.

That underbody storage is incredible. You could make those bays into bedrooms, if you had kids that you wanted to keep out of your hair or something.

Thanks, yes it certainly allows the mind to wander around the possibilities however one will probably be taken up with some sort of hydraulic self loading motorcycle carrier. They also allow for plenty of fresh water storage with a 25,000kg GVM
