Bus is unfinished but all the hard work is completed. Life comes at you fast and my wife and I found great jobs and bought a forever home. The Chewbacca bus dream does not have to die with us!
This 30 foot bus conversion is a great opportunity to chase your dreams and travel the world in comfort and style. We converted this 2006 International school bus into a functional RV.
It has 400 watts of solar and runs off of 600 amp hour solar batteries to be completely off grid with plenty of juice to spare. We installed 120v outlets along the entire interior of the bus that is run off of a 2500 watt inverter.
In order to save power, it also comes with a DC control panel that powers the essentials (Water pump, LED lights, Fantastic Fan, Straight-line actuator for bed lift) You can plug into shore power as well and charge the batteries when needed. We ran the 120v system on an up to code Fuse box with independent fuses for different zones and the fridge for safety.
It features a bright interior with led lights running along the interior with independent zone switches that can dim. It has a private bathroom with a compostable toilet and can fit a double mattress on the loft. It has plenty of storage space and has a fridge to store any and all food for your travels.
This bus has been giving us some emergency break problems and we just dont have the time or the funds to fix. For more pictures please feel free to check our instagram page and see the progression : thechewbus
