Camper Conversion from a School Bus? Camper Conversion Build / Rig

Intended to carry up to 35 students to school over the world’s toughest roads; imagine the camper conversion you could build in this thing.From the company’s CEO:“The PRAETORIAN SCHOOL BUS by TORSUS can carry up to 35 children on any of the world’s toughest school run routes, whether on- or off-road. Special features include bespoke original seats styled around mathematics and science designs. The seats are covered with a polymer protective coating, made to rigorous TORSUS standards, equipped with a seat belt suitable for all ages while optional extras for the seats include a foldable armrest and hip support bar on the aisle side.The TORSUS PRAETORIAN is built for world’s toughest jobs and to transport personnel and equipment across inhospitable terrain in any conditions. The PRAETORIAN is based on an upgraded heavy-duty MAN chassis and is powered by MAN engines and drivetrain. The SCHOOL BUS edition of the vehicle features uprated off-road Michelin tyres and coating on body parts meaning that PRAETORIAN is engineered to take on any terrain, on any terrain, anywhere in the world.”Powered by a 6.9-liter diesel engine, with four-wheel drive, front and rear locking differentials, and—wait for it—Michelin XZL tires, the Praetorian boasts some impressive specs. I can’t biggify this chart, but that’s a 900mm fording depth, a 33º side-slope capability, and a 65% grade capability. Of course you don’t have to go with the Zonker yellow bus version; there’s also the more menacing-looking MP: Torsus is here.
