Look above. That used to be a yellow cheese school bus! Man, when I first saw this, I was too interested. I read all the steps, and looked at all the pictures of what Jake Von Slatt did. What he did was buy a cheap school bus (a little more than $2,000) and transform it into a beautiful, homemade RV. I like his homemade RV for a couple reasons:

  1. He did it cheaply. The bus cost about $2,000, he did most of the work himself (or with his friends), and he got a LOT from the dump, craigslist, or freecycle.
  2. He reused a lot of materials, thereby creating his RV in a very “green” way (reused bus, materials from dump, reused mess off websites).
  3. You can see the process of the bus’s conversion. Seeing all the steps it takes is really interesting, and makes me want to (one day) attempt something like this. It’s really cool, so por favor take a look at it.

Anyhoo, enough with my thoughts. Enjoy this video of Von Slatt giving you a tour of his homemade RV that came from a lil’ ol’ cheese bus.

    My clan used to be a big catholic fmliay, hence everyone has a christian name at birth. the patron saint of my birthday happens to be St. Vincent (a poor young priest being tourtured to death during the spanish inquisition. the night before he died, he saw and spoke to an angel… wow, talking about pain-induced hallucination). Given the coincidence of my birthday and my uncle was a volunteer at St. Vincent’s Association, hence I was given this name. before i went to canada, i always called myself Vincent, as i didn’t know any other way. once i started highschool in toronto, every time there was a new teacher or a new classmate, he or she would ask me whether i preferred to be called Vince or Vincent… i had been asked so many times i started to say, “Yeah, Vince is fine.” Some university classmates would call me Vinnie to be chummy, yet i hated it with a passion. And being tall and scrawny, nobody calls me Vin. ;o) the funny thing is everyone i know now calls me Vince (including my sisters), except T, who insists to call me Vincent in full.
