Enthusiast Documents The Most Epic Bus And Van Conversions

  1. artFido

    This is our first van we ever had in Australia, we had to cook outside rain or shine, you couldn't stand up inside and we shared a single bed for a whole year! This tiny little home started our love affair with life on the road, it gave us a crash course in alternative living and the kind of freedom that tasted bloody beautiful! We discovered a life which was possible if we put our minds to it, one which was at times.. really hard but worth it every damn time! A life we had been dreaming of

    We are definitely not experts, we’ve been working it out as we go (eg. when we hit the road the only tools we packed were a hammer and a tiny screwdriver - which I don’t recommend doing if you plan to drive any car, let alone a vintage Kombi, around Australia

    Carl’s conversion is in full swing. I can’t believe it’s actually happening! Can’t wait to start exploring

    We have finally hit the road! After 5 days of non stop designing and renovating we finally have our new home for the next 3 months.  Can't wait to share the interior with you guys and our months of adventures . The first night at this beautiful spot was a success and I'm already in love with the states and this van ... (and yes, this home will be up for sale at the end of our stay)

    The van rebuild was a real labour of love, they wanted to create a relaxing and happy environment. A place where they could really feel at home. They had no idea what an arduous task it would be. They worked tirelessly night and day, for 6 weeks. With very little spare money, they had to learn new skills and become resourceful. Building everything themselves from scratch. Scott became a carpenter, plumber and electrician and Ellie a seamstress, painter and decorator.

    What they achieved is a touching tribute to their Florence, a dream that never came true. Sometimes the dreams that do come true are the ones we never even knew we had.

    We are so excited to finally be on the road after first purchasing our bus 2 years ago! Our build took a year and a half to complete.

    To answer everyone’s concern how do we keep everything still while we are moving - we use Velcro tape! Thus, after a few attempts of driving the bus, surprisingly everything stayed as it is without taping it. Gotta thank the soft air suspension of the bus

    Our sweet bus is starting to look more and more like a home! We are almost at the finish line. We absolutely cannot wait to move in

    Note: fireplace is a low heat electrical and is at a safe distance from curtain - no threat to start a fire
