American couple Robbie and Priscilla love to travel, so they decided to take their hobby to the next level by bringing a miniature (or not so miniature) home along with them. They boldly opted to renovate a 1998 school bus, rather than something smaller like a van, in order to accommodate their pets labrador and cat.

The bus has been fitted with everything you need to live comfortably, including a proper front door. Careful touches like this take it from looking like a drab, derelict mode of transport, to a cosy top-of-the-range motorhome.

Certain features they fitted cannot even be found in a typical motorhome, including a wood-burning stove, quartz countertops, a brick wall, and a glass shower door. This makes for a luxury mobile home that is also safer than an RV in case of a road accident.

The sleek design of the bus makes it feel more spacious than many apartments, having a cosy, farmhouse design. Robbie and Priscilla did not compromise on their utilities, fitting a full-sized fridge and oven in the kitchen of the bus.

The couple have found innovative ways to save space, such as a slide-out pantry and a raised-platform bed.

The bus also boasts solar panels and Trojan batteries, making it possible to take it off-grid and disappear wherever you please.

Unfortunately, the family’s dog Baxi passed away right before the end of the bus build, never making it on the journey, but they decided to continue with their plan in her honour.

Since Covid, travel has been significantly more difficult, so Robbie and Priscilla adapted their plan by heading home to renovate a van too. They continued the theme of their iconic bus project, creating what turned out to be a scaled-down version of their original build.
