Ryan Lovelace met a new love on craigslist in the form an old Chevy bus from 1948. He named her Ophelia. Since then, Ryan has worked tirelessly to refurbish Ophelia and has successfully turned her into his new rolling home.
A picture from the day he bought Ophelia.
As part of the refurbishment, Ryan added a bedroom pad to the top of the bus.

Ryan’s inspiration for redesigning Ophelia was a DIY bus from a 1979 book called Rolling Homes.

Wow. The finished interior of Ophelia looks amazing.
He also added a small antique stove.

That’s it… I’m going to start looking on Craigslist for a 1948 bus of my own. Before you do the same, give me a head start by sharing this story with others.
