This Converted American School Bus Is Amazing Inside

This Converted American School Bus Is Amazing Inside

A family spent over £23,000 converting this US school bus into a mobile home and it's amazing.

Now, I know, £23,000 is a lot of money, but it's so good.

Luke, 28, and Rachel Davis, 26, and their two-year-old daughter Charlotte originally from Oswego, Illinois, USA are the proud owners of this 1992 Am Tran Genesis bus, which, thanks to the extensive refurb, now comes with a kitchen, bedrooms, a wood burner and a solar-panelled roof.

Luke said: "We are a growing family that loves to spend time together, travelling, exploring, and making friends on the road. So far, we have gone through all of the east coast, most of the south, south east, and we are pecking away at the west.

"Life is satisfying, every day is Friday on the bus. Sometimes that comes at a cost but overall life on the bus is an adventure in itself.

"Charlotte, our almost three-year-old daughter loves the bus. She has become amazing at making new friends wherever she goes. For us as parents it doesn't seem to pose any challenges that can be blamed on the bus, just the usual toddler stuff.

"Travelling is something I never thought I'd be able to do so that has been awesome. More than that I love that the three of us get unlimited time together.

"I used to only see my daughter a few hours a day during the week, thanks to my job. Also meeting people and making friends on the road is one of the coolest things about this lifestyle."

The family have visited 31-states and clocked up an impressive 20,000-miles. Thanks to the buses solar-panelling, it can function off-the-grid for two weeks, and the Davis' plan on eventually getting themselves a plot of land to park up on so they can live self-sufficiently.

Luke went on: "We dream of eventually buying land in whichever state we deem the best and parking the bus there while we build our own off-grid home.

"Charlotte usually wakes up first, makes her way up the stairs to our loft and climbs on our heads until we wake up. We have a family breakfast every day and next would be our activity for the day which just depends on whether we are checking out a new city or enjoying nature.

"After lunch Charlotte takes a nap for a few hours and this is our quiet time and can usually be spent outside the bus. Then we all hangout until we are ready for dinner, usually cooked in the bus.

"Often a family walk or bike ride after that which is followed by bedtime for Charlotte. The rest of the night is just Rachel and I unwinding from the strenuous life we live."

The re-fit took just 18 months, and Luke reckons 'anyone' is capable of doing the same. I'm not sure about that, mate, I once shot through my own sleeve with a nail gun trying to hang a picture.
