This is some really incredible work! This might be old news to most of you but this is one of the highest quality cabinet work I have ever seen in conversion.

    @ Ken - Two strokes are like a slobberin' dog.  Ya gotta love 'em (and feel good for the people that have them) but i wouldn't wanna *own* one!

While I am impressed with the quality of the conversion, I do not agree with a few things, like the microwave and the overhead cabinets. The micro is a very nice setup, but is wasting a whole cabinet under it just for the thrill of seeing it go up and down. Also when something goes wrong with it and has to be replaced, another one the exact same size and shape will have to be found or a cabinet rebuild will be in order.
The top cabinets are very nice also, but with a curved roof and curved fronts there is not a whole lot of available space inside.
Seems to me like those oh so beautiful hot rods that are trailered from show to show because they are impossible to drive.

One can't fault the work and general cleverness.  It's for a very specific situation though and surely would not work for everyone, but it's great if it suits your needs.

Great workmanship and design in keeping with the year of the bus.  But-obviously for weekend trips with the kids.  Didn't see any hanging space, and didn't see at least a 2 burner cooktop to make breakfast for all the hungry mouths.  It has great eye candy appeal especially with the color changing LED rop lights (just like you'd have in your house!).  But-that's why we all make our own to our specifications.  Good Luck, TomC

I saw this one online before and thought it was being converted in OR?  Who is doing this work?
