Designed to fit the owner's lifestyle and needs, these conversions are filled with inventive architectural details, creative materials, and unique style. With photographs of the buses and their breathtaking surroundings, floor plan diagrams, and space-saving hacks, this is a book for aspiring bus- owners and armchair adventurers alike.
