Both the bedroom and bathroom walls are paneling that came from Menards. Both were the nicest looking (IMO) and most pricey paneling that Mendards had. I think the wood paneling was about $35 per sheet and the bathroom was $28 per sheet.

So a couple weeks back we had sort of a coloring contest between the kiddos. They were each giving the task of creating two designs that said travelinwithus.com. Once the designs were finished we would all vote as a family on which one we liked best and then paint that design on Farold. They made their designs, we voted, and our six year old daughter won the contest. So yesterday we stopped to do laundry and while we were waiting for the laundry to get done we went to work. Here are the results:







We had fun painting it on the bus and we all participated. Next summer we are going to be repainting the entire bus and we will decide then if we will leave it on or not.

Clever way to get your kids involved. :-)

Since it appears you want people to visit your web site, I suggest outlining the individual letters in a bold black so that they "pop out" more visibly from the all-white background.

Just curious...... Do you have window shades in there? I did not notice any in your pictures.

All the windows are tinted. Permanent curtains are on our list of things to do. What we did for this trip was had some blankets we purchased from Wal-Mart that stuck well to the hook side of velcro. So we cut the blankets to fit and stuck velcro above the windows. Worked really well for a temporary solution. The only reason we really put up the blankets (or curtains) was to help insulate the windows as you can't really see inside the bus because of the tint on the windows.


After 43 days, 4248.1 miles and 16 states we have completed our first trip with Farold. What a great ride it was! This is the first time in my life I am not happy to be home, lol. I see fulltiming in our future!

Here is a pic of a Google Map that I created showing about where we went:

Nice Job! I always wanted to do a bus conversion and you did a good job especially when considering the time you did it in. I was always afraid it would become a year or two project. So congrats.
If I was going to do one though I planned to paint the arm dividers between the windows black so to give the look of a RV and less school bus. But thats just cosmetic.

sofa fabric

aren't you worried that the electrical "stuff" under the sofa will get hot and catch the sofa fabric on fire ?

If you haven't done it yet, segrate those batteries and vent them outside. Hydrogen gas in a confined space = bad idea.

Safe travels!
