Now that I've been living full-time in my bus instead of just using it as a detachable bedroom and work truck, I decided to take some pictures of my set-up.

did you take these pics with your gopro? they turned out rather well.

Thanks, yes I did but I adjusted them in a basic editor so they came out a little prettier.

Yeah, I like to keep it minimal and tidy for versatility and efficiency. I don't like to have cabinets crammed in every open space, I gotta have room to party.

The bus is technically a chevy make, but the only chevy to it is the chassis; it's got a Cat 3126 diesel engine, automatic alison transmission, made in 2002. The length of it is perfect, it handles surprisingly like a big truck and the gas mileage is 10 mpg or so. I converted the inside myself.

it was designed while staying in it in Minnesota in the dead of winter, but with the extreme high temperatures of my home in the Sonoran desert in the summertime in mind so I can make myself comfortable just about anywhere. I have curtains to cover all the windows stowed in one the drawers beneath the bench and magnets on the walls to put them up.

I scored a stained tempurpedic mattress for free and installed my own solar system as well. Now I just need an internet hot spot!

lol @ the woodburning stove i never thought i'd see one of those in a bus

they're surprisingly common, there's some really nice super compact ones that don't take up much space (but obviously require smaller pieces of wood). you seem them pretty often in videos of bus conversions.
