Meet “Navi,” a converted school bus by Michael Fuehrer. Michael bought the 35-foot 2004 Thomas Freightliner for $3,600 and converted it into a tiny home that he uses to travel and enjoy the outdoors. The total price for the bus and conversion was about $30,000 and the work was done by Michael and his dad.
The exterior is outfitted with a fold down table on the side of the bus, a 7’x2.5′ “garage” for tools and outdoor gear, and best of all, an 8’x10′ rooftop deck! Along with the deck is a solar panel system and three skylights.
The bus offers approximately 140-square-feet of living space and includes sleeping space for six, a 6-foot kitchen table, full size range, 10.4 cu.ft. refrigerator, and a wet bath with composting toilet. The kitchen is also equipped with a full size residential sink and countertops that Michael built from reclaimed maple.
Under the bus is a 130 gallon fresh water tank, 100 gallon gray water tank, 100 gallon diesel tank, 29.3 gallon propane tank, and seven feet of storage boxes.
