Have done a bus conversion. Sleeps four has a bathroom with full sized tub, woodstove for heat, galley has double stainless steel sink, propane stove,oven. Pics should be here under greywolf somewhere. Just thought Id throw this in here since there were no messages in here on this subject.
Thanks fellow Bus Nut! for adding your discussion. How has your bus conversion worked out for camping for you?
Ive used the bus for many things. One time there was a civil war re enactment weekend, and being part of the ambulance service we were required to be there the entire weekend. I parked the bus there Friday afternoon and moved it home on Monday morning.We used it as a first aid station. I treated several minor injuries and helped a couple elderly people with diabetic problems. Also used it as a cooling station for over heated re enacters. It was a memorable weekend that I got to share with my daughter.
If you wanna see bus conversions out the ying yang with allllllllll sorts of home made devices, visit any busnuts rally. I used to have the bus bug but when I saw how expensive and how heavy parts were and the chassis and drive train and brakes, transmissions and tires etc etc I opted for my Class C with a one ton Chevrolet chassis that you can get about any parts for practically at K Mart and will be able to for years to come. HOWEVER don't get me wrong, I LOVE conversions and all the goodies and room etc AND I LOVE FLXIBLES WOWWWWWWWW........ We do a lot of National Parks and Natl Forest and Utah and Colorado dry camping in the mountains where a smaller shorter lighter unit works much easier and better for our lifestyle.
Lets see them pictures as I love conversions but they don't work for our more mobile gypsy lifestyle.
Ol John T and all
John T, you should still have a bus too! can't have too many toys!! :)
Pat, anytime I see a Flx I get weak in the knees, sure Id love one. However at my age and station in life and for our travel lifestyle, I simply don't have the patience to ever restore one the way Id like it so I just grin and bear it. If I were just starting and had the patience I used to I might take on a bus conversion but I just cant do it now grrrrrrrrrrrrrr so I go to rallys and look at others with envy.
At the recent Florida Flywheelers there were like 16 Wanderlodge Owners Group who brought their Wanderlodge Bus RV's and had a big rally and showed them off WOW now those Wanderlodges were one great motorhome.
Heres my Class C at Lake Bonnett Village in Avon Park Florida where I stay most of the winter.
Well, you look pretty cozy and what a winter camp John T. You're livin the life. the only thing that would be better is if you had a Flx on the space next to you :)
