When you think of the perfect adventure mobile, we can’t imagine that a mid-century short bus comes to mind. But we imagine after you see the Short Bus Retro, you’ll have a whole new perspective on the matter.

What started out as an old, beat up 1959 Chevrolet Viking short bus has been transformed into an adventure mobile. Restored by the team at Winkelman Architecture, the bus can haul up to 12 people, and features a sleeping area complete with two single beds – both of which can be combined in the center of the bus for a queen-sized accommodation. Inspired by the 1960s, the bus has a hippy-chic vibe that’s put on full display with the gorgeous pine floor found throughout, the multi-colored beads draped alongside the Moroccan-style prints and tassel lamps strategically placed about to help illuminate the living space.
