The baby bus is a Chevrolet Express Skoolie Conversion. It features a complete custom cedar and baltic birch interior fully equipped with 2 extendable beds that can sleep 3 people comfortably. Additionally, it features a full 3-burner stove and oven combo, a sink, a fridge, a sweet full extendable hidden table, a wood-burning stove (mini fireplace), an optional cassette toilet, a fan, a Thule for extra gear and a rooftop deck! Powering it all is 300 amp hours of lithium batteries, 390W of solar and a 1500W inverter for all your 120V needs. The bus has tons of hidden storage and insulated curtains that allow you to choose between breathtaking views and privacy. It was my full-time home for 5 months on the road, so it has everything you could possibly need. Outdoor shower? Check. Propane heater? Check. A sweet sound system? Check. It is a cabin on wheels and is just the cutest.What's includedThe bus will come equipped with everything you need to cook and camp including a 3-person tent and basic camping tools. A few cool add-ons include a yoga mat, a foam roller, a propane heater, fresh linens and blankets and a sweet sound system that is custom-built into cabinets themselves. RecommendationsGo and adventure! This bus has taken me to Mexico and back through many national parks including Yellowstone, the Tetons, Arches, Zion and the Redwoods. The deck offers plenty of space for paddleboards, surfboards and even a tent to soak in some incredible views ! Other things to noteI custom-built this bus. I intend to use it while I go to grad school.As such, I expect guests to treat it like their own home. Please no smoking and no irresponsible behaviour. There are certain features of the bus that require a bit of finesse and a list of things that need to be done to ensure a safe and comfortable ride. Please be respectful and clean as I poured my entire soul into this little space, I would be heartbroken if something bad happened to my baby.

    Converted my short skoolie after I graduated from my undergrad and the pandemic hit. It took me 2 years to finish all of it but I am super proud of the work I put in and how it came out. After completing the conversion, I took a road trip through many of the US National Parks and all the way to the Southern Baja Sur Region in Mexico. I had planned on taking the Cali Coast on the way up but the floods changed my plans so instead, I did some snowboarding around Oregon and Washington. I am renting my tiny home to save up for grad school where I will be studying a Master of Public Policy and Governance with an emphasis on Renewable Energy and Sustainability. I love nature, my baby bus and the outdoors :)

    The baby bus ist an 10/10. We had the best time in it. The interior is pretty well done by Marcos himself and was defentely built with heart. Never had any struggle with the power — the solarsystem is awsome. Never had any problem with the engine either.
    We recomend!
