If you were following us before, you have probably noticed that it has been a while since we shared our stories, we basically totally dived further down the rabbit hole of the campervan conversion, became hermits for a few months and completed our conversion!!! Yeahhhh!


So what now?

Now we have converted a school bus into our luxury campervan, got rid of the majority of our belongings, (keeping our prized possessions), and are living in our motor home full time, we are currently writing an e-book sharing how we did it, and how you can too!

Alongside that mini project, we are going to share the process with you on here, sharing all the good, the bad and the ugly… useful conversion tips that we learnt… how to figure out the different systems of plumbing, electric, gas and heating… handy campervan life and small living tips, our travelling adventures and whatever else makes its way into camperbus nomads!



Do you have any questions for us about the conversion, or anything you would like us to share in particular? Leave a comment below, we would love to hear from you…



Until next time

School Bus Campervan Conversion Continues…

Following our previous post about whether or not to keep the original bus doors, we decided to put those thoughts aside for the time being, whilst we continued with windows!

Firstly we made a window sized hole! (All measured correctly of course)


Next we inserted our brand new motorhome window! Double glazed should help prevent drafts come the frosty winter months.


As our windows were coming on nicely, we thought about the last remaining bus windows.. the rooflights. Initially these were an awesome feature when we purchased the bus however we soon realised that they were the bringers of drippy leaky watery doom!

Early Morning Surprises

Did I mention that in Jon’s excitement, he has been greeting the sun to work on the bus early in the morning and making massive progress! A nice surprise when I went to join him.

So Jon was working on removing those “busy” features that still remained. He took an angle grinder to this wheelchair lift which ended up being so heavy that we both had to leave it where it fell, to await the scrap man!

Check out the inside now! Wooden frames, aluminium, insulating foil and lots of celotex insulation later-


And the outside is also coming together!
