Rose The Lifestyle Challenge Bus Quick Update

As we are madly getting ready to take our life on the road in Rose The Lifestyle Challenge Bus I thought I would do a quick update. Covering everything that David is doing/has done and how the Motorhome is looking with David trying to get it all completed before we hit the road!

Rose The Lifestyle Challenge Bus – Quick Update

To get Rose on the road David is working very late at night, and up early each morning working on fixing up the Motorhome so we can leave to travel around Australia. After posting about our quick update video about what we are packing/selling off/taking with us – I thought a quick update video of the inside of Rose The Lifestyle Challenge Bus was needed! So here is the latest news….

So far David has repaired, rebuilt, fixed, made new the following….

  1. Three New Windows have been put in.
  2. Safety Switch has been added.
  3. Wiring is added throughout the bus ceiling and walls.
  4. New PowerPoint’s have been added on the inside and the outside.
  5. Insulation in the ceiling and walls have been added
  6. New walls are now in at the back of the bus
  7. David has pulled out the stove so that he can place Stainless steel on the surrounding walls
  8. The lounge chairs have been pulled out so that David can build new ones (that will have seat belts)
  9. Cupboards have been built above the stove and near where the wash basin/washing machine is going to be placed
  10. Carpet has been pulled out of the main bedroom
  11. Ceiling replaced towards the front of the bus as it was all water damaged.
  12. Wardrobe (half of the wardrobe) has been attached to the wall at the back of Rose
  13. Colorbond Sheeting on the outside of the bus
  14. Front corner of the bus has been taken off and David is in the process of making another one!
  15. Floor fixed near the Double Bed
  16. Back window rubber has been replaced

What Still Needs To Be Done Before Rose The Lifestyle Challenge Bus Is Ready

  1. Two more windows to be put in
  2. Fly Screen/Door needs to be put in
  3. Front W indows and small side window rubber needs replacing
  4. Bunk beds finished off
  5. Flooring in the bus
  6. New lounge chairs with seat belts
  7. Surrounds of the windows made with fiberglass
  8. Marine Carpet on the ceiling

    Empathising with you Lisa, we soon learn how much clothing we really need. It’s a constant battle to make sure clothing exits as new clothing arrives, with wardrobes this size, it doesn’t take many extra items to really clog things up!

    Except for the window surrounds – your “yet to do” list is almost identical to what ours was only weeks before taking off in our bus! I KNOW where you’re coming from. Give me a call whenever you need someone to unload to, who understands.

    You’re doing great guys, super proud of you both!

    Hi Lisa,
    Great to see the Bus is progressing nicely.
    I know downsizing the wardrobe will take a bit of getting used to, but your right you don’t need as much clothing when you travel. Just think, you will probably have more than a back-packer πŸ˜‰

    You, David and the Kids must be getting excited, as its getting closer to when your adventure starts.

    Thanks for the update,

      Hello Cade,

      Thanks for the comparison about “having more than a back-packer”….that kinda put it into perspective πŸ™‚ Getting excited, and itchy feet. Wished I could wake up tomorrow and it was all done!! But I guess the waiting will make it all the worthwhile.
