Couple turned an old school bus into a cozy home on wheels

Everyone’s familiar with the Magic School Bus, but what about the Magic House Bus? That’s precisely what couple Robbie and Priscilla created when they purchased a 1998 Thomas School Bus. While they could have bought an RV, they wanted something that said “home,” and a school bus that reminded them of a tiny home was it. They even went so far as to put a genuine house door on it.

Robbie and Priscilla had to combat leaking windows that required full replacement, and after a year on renovations, a head gasket blew. They then had to sacrifice some of their renovation funds to replace the motor. Now, however, it purrs like a kitten with an engine with no more than 52,000 miles on the clock.

They also didn’t mess around with RV fridges, choosing a full-size model partnered with a full oven range for large family dinners.

Two outdoor showers can take care of any sand and dirt from outdoor adventures as well. Fortunately, this house on wheels can be entirely off-grid when you need it to be too, thanks to the six solar panels and eight Trojan batteries.
