Surfer Ryan Lovelace and His Girlfriend Turned This Vintage Bus into a Stunning Home on Wheels

If I had the time on my hands, I’d be doing this. Surfer Ryan Lovelace bought an old vintage bus, and converted it into a wonderful living space with the help of his girlfriend and his buddies. I’m so jealous!

That’s such an amazing labor of love! They worked so hard on this bus, and now they get to drive it to all their surfing spots. If I ever get fired from my job, now I know exactly what I’m going to do with my time…
