Saying that he has been dreaming of the project for 10 years, Tuğba Atila said that he took a step forward with the impressions he got from abroad and said, “We bought this bus from Istanbul last year. This bus is a bus used for intercity travel. First of all, we removed their seats and upper trunk. Then, after forming and insulating the floor, we proceeded to its design. We completed it in 2.5 months. I took care of everything myself, I have a lot of effort. I did not get any support from any person other than the furniture maker. We created such a project with the support of my husband. There is a modern and very useful kitchen in the bus. There is a living room and a bedroom. There is a toilet and a bathroom. “I came up with something inspired by the hotel concept as I am a tourism professional myself,” he said.
Tuğba Atila stated that the bus does not require external electrical energy and said, “Since my husband was an electrical engineer, he did all the work related to electricity himself. There is a wind tribune at the back of the bus. There are 7 395 watt solar panels on the ceiling. There are 8 gel batteries and an 8 kilovolt-ampere generator. It has become a vehicle that we can use like a house without being tied to the outside. I put the same system in the house in the vehicle. I can use the oven, dishwasher, washing machine and built-in very easily. “We live in caravans all the time due to the pandemic.”

“I feel very good and I am getting good reactions. While driving, everyone is waving. I have other projects in mind. I want to turn a 2-decker bus into a caravan. I also have a trip plan with this bus. First of all, I will go to Çanakkale. Then I have a trip plan on Istanbul, we will travel this way. In Turkey, I would be the first woman to support women who want to have implemented. I can meet them. I especially support women driving cars and buses “
