She’s a 2009 bus with only 80,000 miles so there is so much life left to her!
From the back of the bus:
We’ve built in a full-size bed platform with ample storage underneath. There is a hatch door at the foot of the bed to access more storage, a cabinet for clothing, books, etc mounted on the wall and a dresser built into the bottom of the bed frame. A door in front of the bed allows for access to under the bed storage.
Running down the left side of the bus is the 6-foot long couch with custom mountain sunset cushions. The base of the couch flips up to reveal ample storage that is 6 ft by 24 in.
Walking into the bus, you are greeted by a single hinge door made from the original bifold bus doors. Newly covered stairs lead you up to a storage dresser immediately upon entry. Just behind that is the mount for the bus’ wood-burning stove that will graciously warm this cozy space in the winter.
The bathroom is a beautiful composting toilet made from gorgeous oak wood. We installed a mirror, three handmade shelf units, and some wall hooks for more storage space.
The kitchen is very spacious in this bus. We’ve got ample shelving storage both under the sink, on the counter and in a mounted wall cabinet. The sink in the bus runs off of a galley foot pump to save water and make for easy dump and refill stops. The sink sports a handmade cooper faucet that swivels side to side.
A beautiful oak butcher block is built into the middle of the kitchen counter. It is food-safe, was just beautifully refinished and ready for use! Under the butcher block is storage space for a propane tank for the stove. The stove is a push starter with 3 large burners for all your cooking needs. Under the sink is our IceCo 45L fridge/freezer to keep your food cold on the go!
The bus is outfitted with two 100 watt solar panels on the roof running to a 1000w lithium phosphate battery all from Renogy. Equipped with a charge controller with a usb port, a 1000w/12v inverter that gives you two AC plugs and a 12v fuse box that currently will only host 6 LED lights on a dimmer switch and an IceCo 45L fridge/freezer. So there’s plenty of opportunities to use more power and expand the system if needed!
