Dad and Son Convert School Bus into Amazing Motor Home

When 29-year-old Patrick Schmidt decided that he wanted to take a major time-out from the rat race, he hatched a plan. He and his dad bought an old school bus for $4,500 and set to work converting it into a dream motor home. Take a look at the impressive results:
