Bumping this to the top, here's another Israeli conversion by Blue Bus who specializes in such conversions. I think they tried to make it look standard externally:

...But inside:

These two are copied from Peter Globi's post in historic trucks: a UK Morris LC501 ambulance converted to a campervan.

The houseboat in reply 39 is not an AEC Swift. It is a Daimler Roadliner, and the name is quite readable on the original.

I have been helping an HCVC member track the history of his 1988 Austral Tourmaster, and he has supplied three photos. Instead of playing with the photos a second time, the whole lot is at an open-access thread.

Here are six from the Sun.9.11.14 HCVC rally at Yarra Glen (Vic.).

Flxible Clipper (with purpose-built motorhomes in the distance):


SA Leyland rural school bus (originally all-over yellow).


1978 Leyland Terrier, former Kenilworth (Qld?) school bus:


Just a glimpse of a yellow (International?), with a wide bonnet. It looked like a former National 'bread-basket' Melbourne midibus, but may have been smaller:


International, believed to have been a former catering vehicle for support at police actions, with a smart matching caravan:


Just a glimpse of one which I suspect is a Bedford/Comair:

Mt Barker (SA). Ford bus converted to a campervan. Fri.27.2.15. (Roderick Smith)

I don't know the model, year or ancestry. I guess a former SA school bus?
