This 25′ bluebird has a lot going on. Upon entry behind the drivers seat is the bench that pulls out nearly to the base cabinets to become a bed. The top of the bench also flips revealing a ton of storage space. Across is the kitchen that was designed to be as close to a “real” kitchen as possible. It has everything plus the kitchen sink! Ample overhead storage and shelves abound in this build, leaving no shortage of storage space.

In the corner of the living room is the Grizzly wood stove with custom tile surround. This was a labor of love and an exercise in creativity! Continuing back into the hallway is the full sized shower on the left, equipped with a rainfall shower and spray hose. On the right is the toilet which has a little room of its own along with a retractable privacy door.

Further on through the french doors is the master bedroom. It’s furnished with a queen sized bed base with drawers built in, dog kennel “cave”, and fold out dog ramp since the bed was too high for the customers small dog to jump onto. On the drivers side of the master is the laundry area, and on the passenger side is the closet that also houses the water heater.

On the roof of the bus is a 7’x 10′ deck accessible via ladder. The deck frame is bolted to the frame of the bus with 1/2″ hot galvanized bolts, so its not going anywhere! The remaining roof area is taken up by 4, 330 watt solar panels. All of this helps shade the roof of the bus which actually keeps it a good bit cooler!
