From double decker bus to RV in 20 steps

Onrust!

    How I bought a double decker bus and converted it in five years time into an RV. See how I did all that in 20 steps. I got a lot of questions about the bus, so I made a FAQ on my website. Read it here: sites.google.com/site/bigbusz...

    The bus is for sale. Interested? Contact me. Email is in the 'about' of this GEtwo-channel.

    We did a full interior tour of the bus, that video is here: getwo.info/top/video/j66tvaR_laGqtbQ
    If you want to know the cost of the whole project, that is in this video: getwo.info/top/video/b5zMsWZ9eqmjqps

    More photos of the bus are to be found in this Google Photos folder:
    goo.gl/photos/KJLum1ap7MDKZCUw6
    The plans of the bus are for free available in the 3D Warehouse of Sketchup at:
    3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/mode...

      Very good job! But i think for that engine overhaul is very extreme overpriced...Greetings from Serbia!

      Could have given us a little more on the final results, man

        I did in another video (several in fact): getwo.info/top/video/j66tvaR_laGqtbQ You commented on a video from 2017..

    4. Peggy Samples

      Now this is a RV

    5. Chris Johnson

      That would be $1,000,000 or more to buy something like that new if anyone even makes such a thing.

    6. Carlos A Cabrera B

      An entire life is never enough to realize your dreams and make happy others. Thank you for share the happiness; is not a big bus, is a big dream. ¡Gracias!

      Step 1 : Be rich person

      1. Onrust!

        'Be' sounds passive and unjust. In my case more appropriate would be: Step 1: Become rich person (I worked and saved 25 years before I was able to do this)

    13. Darek Z

      That is so beautiful, when you don't have to count how much everything weight. I've got the caravan, and I have to.

    14. Andrew robb

      The upholstery on the downstairs seats is quite something 🤔 Also perhaps go without that music for the next video

      I am so jealous, I can’t even afford to deck out a van let alone a double decker bus

      This is definitely the coolest object conversion ive ever seen

    20. joshua kosch

      end result showed only the roof. we didnt get to see the whole thing done from every nook and cranny to everything in it. you past right by all the things in the bus with the camera pointed at the roof.

      1. Onrust!

        Yep. You watched 'in 20 steps'. You SHOULD see 'Interior Tour' for that. 😆 getwo.info/top/video/j66tvaR_laGqtbQ

      The question is what was the price of the bus

      1. Onrust!

        I made a video of that: getwo.info/top/video/b5zMsWZ9eqmjqps

    25. anne cameron

      Such a fab bus but disappointed in the lounge area and dining room. For such a big renovation the let down is the relaxation,/ eating area.

      RV? No, my friend. You constructed an RA (rolling apartment) with actual separate living spaces. Awesome!

      I really enjoyed this video, so funny too. Very creative, I'd like one :)

      When I am ready to do the same for myself, are you for hire? Please

        As I'm self employed, I'm already 30 years for hire. Not sure I want to do what you want me to do though... 😆😆

      "He said there were minor technical details to be fixed, but that it was a fine bus..." Changing the engine, for example... Don't forget to tell us who this _"expert"_ guy is...

      1. Col. Hogan

        @Onrust! Thank you so much for all these explanations.

      2. Onrust!

        You're not the first with this comment. But as I said earlier; some problems you just can't predict years ahead. The test was in 2011, the bus broke down in 2015. The expert is still my mechanic and I trust him full. More on this topic in the FAQ: sites.google.com/site/bigbuszz/faq---english

      Waanzinnig! Wel een zoektocht naar plekken in EU waar je kunt parkeren, maar goed...

      1. Onrust!

        Valt wel mee. Zoeken op Campercontact naar plekken >12 meter levert 500 camperplaatsen / campings in NL op en 2000 in Duitsland.

    34. gojewla

      I am surprised that a vehicle this big only goes up to 255 horsepower.

      1. gojewla

        @Onrust! I am surprised more that it would have worked when at full capacity of passengers. Glad you are having a good time!

      2. Onrust!

        It is underpowered, yes. But we were in Austria, and even the mountains of the Alps are doable. Yes, we're not that fast uphill, but we're on holiday anyway... 😉 And here in the Netherlands, where everything is flat, it isn't any issue at all...

        The conversion you mean? I bought the bus in Nov. 2011 and it was ready in June 2016. Almost 5 years.

      The video format had such an amateur feel to it, but it adds to it's charm somehow. I'm guessing what all the stuff that needed to be done to convert it though, you didn't really have the time to make it all super polished and professional. Understandable, as renovating anything is a long hard process.

      1. Onrust!

        In fact, at the time of the build, I had no plans at all for making a video. I just made photos for my blog and an occasional video. So when the idea for a video came up, I had to do with the little material I had..

    49. Rosa Espinal

      AMAZING!!!!!! Sadly, I could never afford to buy even a school bus to renovate here in the states but if I could, I'd buy a used bus and if I'm lucky would find a double decker somewhere, borrow some features from ur designed bus, especially the children's beds and ur bedroom both of which are gorgeous and kitchen an...heck, I'd borrow all of ur designs and special attention to rolling window blinds and everything. You did such an amazing job and I wouldn't change a thing, why would I, your bus is perfect!

      1. Onrust!

        Thank you, those are kind words. In fact, someone from Russia is at this moment building a 'copy' of my bus. He had similar feelings about it. 😊

    50. Sue Hofkamp

      How clever you are!

    51. Ade

      Excellent fitout! Like the Laurel & Hardy clips, very appropriate. And the engine looks like somebody 3D printed it for you! 😁👍👍

    52. Valkyrie Rescues

      this is truly beautiful professional work! and what an ambition im sure in the begining many ppl where discouraging you. but good for you brother! just a couple things in my opinion i would change: 1 - remove carpets and put wood floors much cleaner since your going on road trips with rain and mud everywhere. carpets bad idea. 2 - stone walls for the bathroom much better. other than that best of luck and keep going!

      1. Valkyrie Rescues

        @Onrust! 1 - oh well if theres a strict no shoes policy then never mind me hahaha 2 - yes yes ofcourse it does well done XD

      2. Onrust!

        1 everybody takes his shoes off. I even had some police officers inside and had them remove their shoes before entrance.. 😂 we find carpet warmer than wood. 2 one wall is of stone, others are tiles. Doesn't that count as stone?

        You should be looking in the GEtwo Audio Library. It's all there and for free. Especially for you I added the artists in the music list (in the English version of the description - this video was translated in over 15 languages, so if you use a different one, please let me know).

        Right behind it, there is a sliding window. I opened that and I kitted in a small panel with a hole in it: photos.app.goo.gl/g56cyKCM8u7QWvccA

      any time someone is happy with their bus project, it's great for *them,* I know. but with all that space there were just far too many awful ideas..and that was the worst process & tour video of a converted bus I've ever seen, never mind the aesthetics.😐

        It depends where you are in the world. Here in Europe, you need a bus drivers licence (D).

      You need a big place to keep that thing parked up 😱 nice but no thanks 🙂

      Értem szóval nem készen vesszük hanem a két kezünkkel csináljuk. Akkor is szép mutatvány volt ! Amire Én még nagyobb tisztelettel nézek. Mert a kézzel készített dolgok mindig értékesebbnek számitottak mint a szériával készített ! És köszönöm szépen, hogy a Lakóbusz építését is megmutatta nekem. Így legalább láthatom a busz felepítését rajzossan is és láthatom a be épített berendezéseket is ahogy el vannak helyezve. Szép munka volt ! Gratulálok hozzá ! Nagyon tetszik !

    64. Michael Mckenna

      Can you imagine taking a bunch of school kids on a school field trip in this?? They wouldn't want to get off the bus!!!

      1. Michael Mckenna

        Fantastic job mate....lots of good memories for everyone , past and present!!! I live in Japan and the roads here are so narrow that would not be driveable....btw....great choice of bgm....bit of jazz fan myself....60s blue note was the best...grant green, Lou Donaldson, lee Morgan, lonny smith, Horace silver, ....

      2. Onrust!

        Actually... before I bought the bus, it's main use was for school field trips. I could tell, because every spot the eye couldn't see, was covered with chewing gum. 😕 But yes, the four seats on top are still favorite by kids. Even when we are parked..

    65. Terry Wilkinson

      Wtf, so it’s look at the pictures or read the notes. Waste of time, all this fantastic stuff and you shit it.

      Sublime... but I would NOT have that air-conditioning/heater in the face of whomever is I front of the sink. Can make you sick. Speaking from experience.

    75. Bertil Wallman

      Hey.. nice creation.. must have been tons of work.. im considering a similar project but with a much smaller bus.. thats why i have a question about the tinted windows.. did you spray them from the outside, with what..? thx a lot.

      1. Bertil Wallman

        Its possible to spray.. with matt clear lacquer to get a frosty look.. i've seen it been used on toilet windows if the glass is clear.. plus, you have the possability to mask parts you not like to be matt, or a pattern.. it's an option and maybe a more cheaper way.. just wanted to hear about your solution.. anyways, thx for your answer.

      2. Onrust!

        Thank you. Never heard of tinting windows by spraying them... (is that possible?). They got a (95%) light blocking film on the outside.

    80. JQ Express

      How those stuff hold when the bus goes through bumps or holes or uneven road??

      1. Onrust!

        It just does. It's all well fixed. Only once the small closet under the sink in the bathroom was forced off the wall by bad Czech roads. Later I saw that the piece of metal that holds it up at the back, sliced the head off of a screw. I put several screws back in and since it holds.

    84. Leland Vandervort

      Very interesting and nice luxurious conversion! Just a question on the licence requirements. Obviously at the initial purchase since it had capacity for 90 passengers, a full D licence would have been required. After the conversion, does it class as a D1 (up to 12 passengers), C1 (truck up to 7.5 tonnes) or even B ? (A lot of modern camping-cars/RVs, including some double deckers, now only require a B licence provided there are no more than 7 person capacity including driver). Just curious as to the modalities and any headaches you might have encountered on that score.

      1. Leland Vandervort

        OOPS... because of the length of the vehicle, still need a full D.... :( I had some cool ideas that just went down the toilet ;) ;)

      2. Leland Vandervort

        found the list of categories on UK licences -- I was underestimating some of the weight and/or passenger restrictions ;) www.gov.uk/driving-licence-categories (my licence was in obtained in 1987 so fewer restrictions, it seems)

      3. Leland Vandervort

        @Onrust! you mentioned that your conversion went to 11 seats, so a D1 should suffice shouldn't it ?

      4. Leland Vandervort

        @Onrust! I'm 51 years old, but yup.. that sounds about right. I used the C1 last time I moved when still in the UK :) -- In total I have AM, A (restriction 3 wheels, such as Piaggio MP3), B1, B, C1, D1, BE, C1E, and D1E. With the reciprocal agreement now in place it's one less headache off my mind about exchanging for a French licence at least for the next 2 years when the photocard expires. (the entitlements are valid until 2039).

      5. Onrust!

        I checked and I was wrong. We do have C1 and D1 - in the way you described. I think D1 (9 - 16 passengers) only makes sense when you're between 21 and 24 yo.? Otherwise there is no point in not going straight for D. Thanks.

      I Can describe you in 2 words: Big Brain

    86. Drew Miller

      One of the coolest RVs I've seen, other than the one people like Will Smith own. Those are ridiculously opulent, for a motor-home I mean. This one is amazing and then there is the pride of having designed and built it yourself. Good job and good roads ahead! Oh, no washer and dryer?

      1. Onrust!

        Thank you. In another video my wife explains why she doesn't want one: she dislikes that kind of work during vacation..

    87. Cxm_peach

      Man I didn’t think about the stairs I’ve been watching these conversion videos lately because my mom wants an rv but I don’t think she’d like the stairs very much :/ wish there was a way to put an elevator in it 😂

      This is just phenomenal.

      This is fantastic. This looks better than most RV’s that sell for the price of a house. I’d love to do this myself when the kids are a little older.

      All that work!!! And waiting and you had the balls to rush and run through the tour!!! SHAME ON YOU MAN!!! FOR REAL!!!

      What i would do is paint The bus once The RV is a bus paint it red because of course that some people would want it to be red And thats The Truth of The matter of fact And i don't want people to get mad at you for not doing that And thats The Truth of The matter of fact And i Love watching how RVs are getting turned into busses And thats The Truth of The matter of fact.

      hey nice work! please do tell about the iPad wifi cam?

      1. Onrust!

        The setup works, but it has some drawbacks. The most important of those is that after a while not functioning, this particular webcam 'forgets' where / who he is. Then I have to take out and connect the laptop to reprogram. That is unacceptable. I was on the lookout for another webcam, but finding one that works without an internet connection is not that easy.. Another drawback is having to remove the iPad. Better is some dedicated device that you can leave on the dashboard (I don't dare with the iPad, I would be afraid some thief might find it interesting..)
