    Holidays mostly and maybe airbnb it when we're not using it. We are planning to move out of the city asap so hopefully we'll have a bit of land to park in soon.

    Long time plan is that my kid can live in it if she decides that she wants to study/live somewhere else since the housing situation is a shit show in Sweden.

    It's classified as a truck so you'll need a truck driver licence. What is lpg? The estimated consumption is approx two litres per 10kms so it's pretty efficient for the size

    No idea really! It came with a rather extensive service manual and parts list so hopefully it won't be too hard 😬.

    Just browsing through the manual it's quite obvious that a lot of thought and experience have been used to building these things. There is also an active community of enthusiasts online

    Cheers! We have already started to strip it down. The old chip board had some damp spots and the shower floor and walls smell of mold.

    The plan is to
    -remove the old insulation and plastic mat, add new breathable insulation (wool, cellulose or flaxfibre) then wooden walls and ceiling.
    -build a sleeping area in the back
    -solar panels on the roof
    -new kitchen
    -new bathroom
    -sofas/table/social area up front
    -maybe a small wood stove

    We want to build everything with sustainable materials/avoid anything that emits nasty stuff in order to create a healthy indoor climate. And because it looks and feels nicer imho.

    So this popped up for sale locally for not too much money. My kid have been youtubeing School bus conversion videos for a while now that has led to some day dreaming and chin stroking so we took this as a sign to just go for it.

    It´s a Scania Vabis from 1964, some previous owner has used it as a race depot van/race car transport and installed a caravan kitchen, sofas, table and a shower.
