Conversion Description

Big Blue has been converted meticulously from an old 30 seater bus into a classy rustic campervan bigger than many London flats! The Bus has been converted to feel like you’re living in rural hideaway, with modern fittings but a plethora of locally sourced wood throughout giving it a cosy feel. The bus has been constructed with locally sourced ash, cedar, larch, oak and pine. The bus berths 2 people with a cosy double bedroom in back, which feels like youre in a tree house. In the main room of the bus, there’s a double ottoman sofa placed in front of the wood burning stove, to keep you warm during the cold winter nights. The wood burner sits on a a slab of Somerset slate and is backed but slate tiles as its heat shield. The breakfast table is made from a reclaimed champagne box and comes with two fold out chairs that can moved around the bus or even outside on a lovely evening. The chairs fold away and are stored behind the sofa during transit. The kitchen is fitted with an original Twyford Belfast sink on a Oak worktop next to a gas cooker. The hot water for the sink and wet room is heater by a 15L undersink water heater. The wet room is tiled with in a Moroccan mosaic and the chemical toilet is stored in the tiled box away from sight.
The bus starts first time on the key, is has extremely low millage for a bus of its age. It has a full service history from its time working for the Scottish council and the daffodil farm in Cornwall, which are its only two previous owners. Recently had a full service under my ownership, which included new oil and gearbox filter change and new batteries. The Bus is very big, more of a static caravan that can move, so it doesn’t accelerate to top speed fast, however it can easily hold 70mph on the motorway all day long.
