One of the greatest joys in modifying a car or a truck–or a bus in this case–is that you have complete freedom to do what you want. You’re treading a new path and creating something totally unique in the process.
Crafted by Maine-based architecture firm Winkelman Architecture, this Viking eschews power and raw speed for comfort and civility. Think more Air Stream and less, well, this.
But as you’ll see, this Viking is still one badass bus.
Despite its stubby stature, the short bus can shuttle you and 12 friends in a fair amount of comfort. You can party it up thanks to on-board power (120 volt and 12 volt) and it’s fully plumbed with both a sink and toilet. That way you don’t have to worry about constantly stopping for that one friend who has already downed three 40 oz bottles of Maxx Ice.
However, with just two single beds on board – or a queen if you join them – you’ll have to kick most of your friends to the curb when it’s finally time to crash. You might be able to squeeze a few in on the floor but the rest will have to make due with a comfy patch of grass.
It might be a short bus, but this Chevrolet Viking would still be one sweet way to travel long distances.
