We can do plumbing to convert a bus to a motorhome to give you the freedom to explore Australia and 'get off the grid'


Need a plumber for bus to motorhome conversions?

Why do you need a plumber for bus to motorhome conversions?

The Nu-Trend Plumbing team can help you complete your bus to motorhome conversion with professional installation of all your piping requirements for water or waste for the kitchen area, shower and toilet. Just like a house we can help make sure you have the right materials and installation to ensure a reliable plumbing system for your bus. 

What type of vehicle do you normally need for a bus to motorhome conversion?

For many people a retired school bus can be relatively inexpensive to buy and with the right mix of building skills they are fairly easy to fit out to have all the typical comforts of home, but in a moving platform. In most cases because they are used for public transport they are build to last and can be roadworthy for a long period of time. A diesel engine with the right maintence can last more than 1 million km’s. While they are much larger than a campervan or a caravan they give you the feeling of space and room to move that is similar to a small unit. Most of them have steel frames and doors making them a good base to start with.

What materials do you normally need for a bus to motorhome conversion?

The process is very similar to a house construction in the sense you have a frame, foundation and then most of the construction involves standard building materials like insulation board, plywood, flooring, cabinetry and trim. Plumbing and electrical systems can be outfitted with a range of products but in many cases people choose marine products for their optimal size, portability & design use. With the space a bus conversion can offer you have more choices too so it is common to see lots of typical household or unit products used.

It turns into an exercise of working out your budget, how you’d like to travel, the places you are thinking of going to & then sorting through the options from there. With the ever increasing growth in Tiny Homes the range of products, design ideas and inspiration for this style of living become more and more abundant.

The Nu-Trend team can help you with your plumbing for a bus to motorhome conversion or the installation of your new Tiny Home.
