Motorhome Bus Conversion with stuff from the swap shop & dumpsters

Littleton, MA - Ever since Sean Slattery was a boy in Newton, he loved trash day. Or more precisely, the evening before, when his neighbors would put out the stuff they wanted hauled away.

He’s all grown up now, but continues to bring things home from the Littleton transfer station and remake them into household objects.

“It’s amazing what people throw out, especially here,” said Slattery. “Littleton seems to have really good trash.”

Perhaps his biggest find is a 35 foot long 1989 Thomas school bus that he bought on eBay two years ago. He paid $2,000 for it, and another $750 to have it delivered to his house on a flatbed truck. He said when the truck rolled up and tipped the bus off, the front end reached higher than the telephone wires on his street.

Sean bus, dubbed, The Seeker, is fully converted to a motor home now, a process that took a year and a half on weekends and an hour here and there during the week. The conversion cost only a few thousand dollars—mostly the cost of tools—since almost everything he used came from the swap shop or the dumpsters. Sean Slattery's Website
