Converting a double-decker bus to an RV is not an easy task. But Youtube user Ron Onrust makes it look like a piece of cake in this 20-step video. He bought a Neoplan Skyliner coach in 2011 and spent over four years building his dream home-on-wheels.
Here was the glorious end result.
The Netherlands-based owner found this 90-seat bus online in 2011. After a test drive and getting it checked by an expert, he bought the coach for 15,000 euros (about $20K in USD).
He completely stripped the inside and re-designed the floorplans using computer programs.
Inside, he added a bedroom, bathroom, and upstairs bunk beds for the kids.
Downstairs, he built a kitchen and comfy seating area with a TV.
Big things were installed first: power for his tools, and a 600-liter water tank. He added 10 walls total, 2 of which he made from cherry wood tables.
The bedroom has a stylish design and is adorned with a famous 1642 Rembrandt painting , The Night Watch, above the mattress.
Almost everything was built DIY. The carpet and kitchen were the only things to be outsourced, to save on time and for a more professional quality. But enough with the details, check out all 20 steps of the amazing conversion in this video.
After his original video went viral, the owner and his wife also shared this full tour of the interior:
