A brief video introduction to Hank’s story and the motivation behind building this bus.
Previous post Getting Ready!
Next post Video: Final Preparations
We just caught up on the adventures of “Hank Bought a Bus”. We particularly enjoyed seeing some of the “before pictures” and can truly appreciate the transformation. Happy Trails!
This is too cool. If you were in Italy I would make you take my husband and me. Safe journey guys!
We are Intersection Magazine. We heard about your creation and we are very interested in mobile home that you made starting from a bus. So, we thought that it would be interesting to deal with it in our next September issue. If it is suitable for you, it is mostly about having HD photographs of the bus and a press file, if it is possible.

Thank you for your interest. We would be happy to discuss your request with you and will be in contact next week once we have completed our journey.
Don’t forget to let us all know when the article is published!
If you’re coming through Boulder, we’d love to host you for paella night. email@example.com
Wendy! Unfortunately we’re cruising straight through Colorado to meet our friend in KC. It’s too bad because I’m not one to turn down a home-cooked meal. Thanks so much for the offer!
I would just marry you. Wonderful project!
I just became a bus driver for a school here in South Texas and as a kid I’d loved buses (metro, school, you name it) besides other things. I have a food trailer (an old starcraft pop-up camper) that I remodeled (can email the before and after pics if you like) and have an idea of converting an old school bus into a mobile restaurant. Have any ideas for a layout? Would love to hear from you. Your bus looks awesome and would have loved to see it if you passed by Texas.
I have a friend who converted a box truck into a food truck, he’d know a lot more about kitchens and systems than I do, but it sounds like a really fun idea!
Thank you for this. We too bought a bus. this is just the inspiration I need. We are getting ready to do flooring. Thank you again.
AWESOME job! The inside is like a sweet transformer.
Great job bro… Recycling at it’s best
What size is the engine and gas mileage?
How I envy you guys, your’e fulfilling a dream, and plenty of folks’ fantasy.
You designed the BUS, youre driving the BUS – and youre doing it all in the beautiful US of A!
Great photos too. What’s not to like. Safe trip!
This was wildly impressive from many points of view: cost, ingenuity, speed of completion, etc. Similar projects have gone through my mind and I have a couple of questions, if I may: did you have to make any drastic alterations to the body/chassis or engine? Did you have to register the alterations and change of use with the state of Minnesota?
Almost all of the work was inserting the living space into the shell. Didn’t mess with the body/engine. It was already registered as an RV so I didn’t have to register the changes.
why keep the emergency escape hatches??? because they are installed there for a reason….to help you escape in an emergency!!! i bet you even blocked the window emergency escapes too. smh….really hope you never get in a situation where you need them. thats the number one reason my father kept them…..becasue they were there for a reason.
I’ve got all four window escape hatches available, and the skylights are just as easy to remove as the old emergency hatch.
I know you’ve got your hands full with your journey, but if you could direct me towards more information on the “tiny house movement,” that would be great. You did say “tiny house movement,” right?
I just read about your bus on enpundit.com and love it.
nice work, great idea and have a safe journey.
wish you sucess.
sometimes with good ideas is best to: up-sleaves, do-it-yourself, manage with what you have and what you can get, adapt as much as possible, accept others ideas to improve your own projects and leave the safe port once it’s finished to spread the word.
seemingly, you’ve done it all!
I see no other outcome than sucess on your case.
please don’t let this be your last project. Peace out. Ride safe.
Whenever I see these type of projects, it’s like expanding my perception of reality and architecture in general. I’ve just started my first year in university at Peru (south america) , and I will make sure all my friends get to see this amazing project. It’s really interesting how different spaces can be created in such a narrow place.
Have a nice and safe journey!
Love it. I’ve been fascinated about compact living for a while now, always trying to pack the bare minimum when moving around and gazing towards the future where we’ll need true compact living solutions to keep our societies growing.
Truely inspirational what you’ve done. Really looking forward to follow your journey and hopefully gain some much needed insight & discussions about compact living.
such a cooooool project bro!
I’ll keep tracking on you(lol
I’m from Taiwan, hope you come to our country:)
I have always though that the worse of the realizations is one step ahead of the best of the projects.
But yours is one of the nicest works I have ever seen.
Have a good trip Hank!
Saludos from Córdoba (Sp)!
