Converting an old bus into a DIY RV is not a new idea. Nor is restoring an old, run-down RV with modern electronics and chic, modern-touches a new idea. Sometimes, though, someone takes an idea that’s been “out there” for a while and takes it to a whole new level. That’s just what the two young Israeli women behind this modern, rolling apartment have done.

They’re both moms, too – which makes me feel a bit like a chronic under-achiever, when I think about it!

Would something like this DIY RV, this kind of style be too “advanced” for American RV’ers, or is something like this just what that American RV industry needs to drag itself into the twenty-first century, or should they build that yacht thing, instead? Let us know in the comments section, below. If you can’t get enough of this thing, head on over to the original XNet article for a more complete photo-gallery.
