In part one of our side project, we take a 34 year old ex-library bus and begin its transformation into what we hope will be a hotel on wheels with the added bonus of being able to transport any of our vehicles at the same time. The venerable truck needs to go on a diet, so out come the power tools...

2:21 is like the start to some low budget UK horror movie, waking up to the back of a mad man inside an rv library bus which is falling apart as its moving 😂 this channel is my calling.

It's surprisingly light. There's pickup trucks in the US that come close to even the before weight

There's probably 100 dollars worth of copper in those cables and wires. I hope you didn't just bin them, and instead took them to a recycler or scrap yard, it may be worth your time if you still have them.

♬ "Keep it greasy so it... slides down easy!" I wish more car peeps would use a bit of Waxoly or grease when assembling things. Every bolt, every chassis member, every box-section, every mating surface... After thirty years of British rain, salt and slush things just come apart or unscrew with a slight squelch and without any hassle. Admittedly, it lacks the drama required for making such entertaining FIpost videos as this... ;-)

I'm pretty sure I would watch you guys no matter what you do. It can be Binky, Escargo, budjet race car, outhouse, barn or just sit and talk.

I wonder if they have carwashes in Britain. I definitely would have pressure washed that undercarriage before crawling under.

I'm guessing someone owns a farm? I can't wait till it finished n I'd love to see how they'll get Binky in there. Guess it'll be home made ramps n possibly a winch to load and unload it.

Hasn't class 4 private HGV been replaced? Did you pass your test before 97? I've been looking and i'd need to do the C1 test and have reviews every 5 years.

The roll on/roll off ramp of a car carrier might work with your escargot, probably not full version but more like the concept. Just a random thought.

Shades of Project Awesome by Maximus Ironthumper! Similar sort of ethos and every bit as enjoyable to watch. Plus it's something else to watch now I'm up to date with Binky. This makes me happy (having only discovered the whole channel a few days ago). Such a beautiful county too - my office is in Shrewsbury but I only get there once or twice a year at most since I live in Devon.

Removing the rear bumper? I *cannot believe* nobody in the comments mentioned it. I am 99% sure that the heavy bumper in trucks is not "scrap metal" but very deliberately placed there for safety reasons -- making a passenger vehicle rear-ending the truck crash and crumple into the bumper, instead of diving under the truck and risking beheading the passengers as the windshield and cabin are the most likely 'first impact point' if that bumper is not there. PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong, I absolutely love the channel but this makes me extremely worried...

I dont want to be the bearer of bad news , but unles the law changed, a hgv vehicle converted to a camper can be re clasified as a class four, but it can only have a cargo area of 1 meter deep for the carrying of life sustaining good or equipment. if you carry the mini in it, that is classed as goods and it will have to revert back to hgv, and the appropriate test, best check with D.V.S.A i would hate you to get caught out with a wrongly tested vehicle, insurance and maybe licence phil

AFAIK it is a class 4 HGV, just private, not comercial. As long as they don't try and register it as a camper, no problems.

And then when it's converted into a camper you'll put a diesel heater back in it as well as hydraulic leveling legs for uneven ground. Kidding! Or am I?

A gas axe or plasma cutter would have soon sorted those rusty bolts. Regards that hydraulic pump - Why didn't you simply saw through the rusty fittings or even the rubber hoses.
