From Double Decker bus to Recreational Vehicle in 20 steps

Recommended Posts

This seems like an interesting idea for a 'self build' project. I could live in that full time. Just need to obtain a PSV driving licence (or whatever it is for buses) and have access to a bit of land.

I can recall at least one plush DD conversion (like this) and one scabby DD conversion (school bus) from George Clarke's show too. 

 

For people with no real DIY/trades experience, it would be a 'steep' learning curve :D

You don`t need a psv licence (only necessary for carrying paying passengers) ,depending when you passed your test and the vehicle weight, you could possibly drive that on a car licence

That classic London double decker`s came in a fair bit less than 7.5 ton so if you passed your test before 1997 they can be driven on a car licence

Started at 16ton, with all the gubbins in that youd need a HGV licence to drive it.

 Thats far more than i expected so a class two needed 

Cheers for the info! :) Come to think of it an HGV licence makes more sense as it's no longer a bus per se.

:unsure: Perhaps a motorhome or Winnebago is the way to go?

I you passed your test before 97 anything 7.5 ton or lower can be driven on a car licence ,it is possible to have 12 gross weight box vans/lorries derated to 7.5 ton
