While factory-built RVs and RVs are popular, you’ll find plenty of bus conversions for sale on the market. This is because a part of the buyers is biased towards this category, and for good reason. Old and dilapidated city and school buses may not seem like much at first, but you can easily transform them into comfortable living spaces. There is something personal and intimate about owning a bus conversion, customized to your requirements. Turning these compact RVs into a cozy haven is easy, and full-time RV users can make life on the road more comfortable with the following features:
Keep interiors bright and white. This not only provides a cleaner aesthetic, but also helps to easily separate your living space from the kitchen. In addition, it gives the illusion of more space and lifts the mood of the passengers.
Useful changes in the kitchen area
Add lots of shelves and cabinets to the kitchen walls for easier storage of food and produce. You can also install hooks to hang towels and cleaning cloths. If you’re adding a counter to the kitchen, be sure to make the most of the available space by installing a dishwasher in the bottom half and a gas burner on top. If there is more than one counter, you can add other useful appliances such as freezers and sinks.
Add more space for your storage needs
When you plan to live in a converted bus full time, you can never have enough room for storage. You need to be creative and find new ways to store your things. For example, if you have a sofa in the living room, you can convert the armrest into a vertical storage space while the lower part offers a horizontal storage space. This is not only an inexpensive solution, but it also helps keep your trash out of sight.
The space under the sofa seat offers enough space to store electrical equipment and batteries.
The more space you save, the more modifications you can make inside your computer. For example, using the sofa spaces to the maximum allows you to install a large door in the middle of the bus, allowing fresh air and light to enter the platform.
Build a pet-friendly workstation
You can set up a work station in the front of your vehicle. The desk should be a decent size that allows you to stand up and work. If you have a pet dog on board, you can add a kennel under the work station. This means that your pet can keep you company while you do your job.
focus on bathroom
A full time RV-er will require a spacious bathroom. Add over-the-door storage to keep your essentials like toothbrushes, pastes, lotions, and shampoos close at hand. If you have enough space in the bathroom, install a bathtub and place the shower head right above it. Getting ready in the morning will be easier if you put a mirror over the door.
Can’t wait to buy that bus conversion you saw on sale the other day? Go for it! Not your first choice though, but if the life of a full-time RV-er appeals to you, then you’re in for a treat. Bus conversions offer greater flexibility than conventional motorhomes and you can customize the vehicle to your requirements.
