Moroccan Style Interior Transforms Bus Into Home

Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express … c’mon, who hasn’t dreamed of a space like this? Quit the ratrace … live on the road … unplugged. Okay, maybe not unplugged. But this bus is a keeper.

A renovated 1959 Viking Short Bus was transformed into this wonderful Moroccan-style home. Check out those cushions – the patterns are so fantastic, so Morocco.

And … it doesn’t take a lot to DIY a travelling home like this one. The open road calls!


The two single beds double as day sitting and can be pushed together to form a queen bed. There’s a sink and toilet, a table and of course, power (both 12V and 120V). Talk about a small footprint. And reduce, recycle, reuse – a perfect example.

Doesn’t this space look super comfortable and warm? And check out the cute little Moroccan wall lamps – no detail has been spared. The license plate may say Maine, but this is Morocco all the way!


From the exterior, one would never guess what awaits within. A whole new world. Travel to an exotic destination every time you get on your bus.


Vibrant cottons and beaded lanterns set the mood! One huge advantage to Bohemian decorating is that nothing ever matches. The style must match, of course, but patterns rarely do. And this opens up worlds of sources for interior decorating items. Sources such as thrift shops and yard sales. Keep your eyes open for bargains.


The day sofas push together to form a queen bed at night.

It may be a short bus – but it’s long on style! And it didn’t cost a lot of money to DIY this bus into a dream getaway bus. If something like this is on your list, now’s the time to get started.
