This couple took a 1993 Ford School Bus and converted it into their very own DIY motorhome cabin in only 3 months time.
The conversion took a lot of hard work but now they have been living in the bus and traveling for more than four years.
It has a diesel engine and the bus is built on a Thomas chassis. Please enjoy and re-share below.

Did any one see the bus? nice video tour.
There’s a bus?
thank you for sharing your love with us. I enjoy reading and watching every and each of your posts. However, I will not make any comments any more, I prefer to keep quite since I am pretty old and I dont plan to get or buy any of these houses (each of them is so beautiful). But be sure that people love you and your tiny houses even though they keep silent. All the best, baba buba
Thanks Buba! I appreciate that very much!
it’s a Thomas bus body on a Ford chassis
This is the dream of all us old hippy’s. Woodstock? Been there, did that, AAHH the “Good ole’ day’s , (some good, some not so good.) Just love this build. The girls headband brought back so many memories. Enjoy life, it goes so fast!!!
Really nice bus conversion. Love the color of the bus and the fairy light lighting. Everything looks clean, well done, comfortable and manageable. Love it! Great job. Thanks for sharing!
Really nice home! Love the way you left the windows all open, and love the lighting, too. Its warm an inviting, and light and cheery at the same time. Adorable! Happy Trails.
Beautiful. One of the best. You have been travelling for a long time and this is your main home. My question is…how do you not have a regular street adress and keep your legal documentation legal? things like for drivers license, insurance, income tax documents? Thanks.
Why couldn’t they just use the address of a friend or family member and title it… Mr & Mrs US

I am so impressed about the designs of tiny houses I see here..space management is fantastic, though it is small but it is sophisticated.
how can they afford fuel
You mentioned you’re a designer. That explains the perfect balance of color, design, size and arrangement of appliances, furniture, etc. (I was actually wondering if these ideas came from a designer due to the aesthetically stunning results).
If you don’t already do so, you could do very well designing small dwellings for others. I’ve seen many beautiful interior designs but there’s something distinctly ethereal about this one. Well, this is absolutely beautiful. You have everything you need while retaining plenty of space and comfort.
The video and music were a joy to watch and hear, as was the tour. You’re are a beautiful couple who’ve created a beautiful, enviable dwelling and who clearly embrace life responsibly but with wonder and utter joy. You “walk the walk”.
What a treat is was to view this beautiful, mobile dwelling. Your home, lifestyle and obvious love of life and the ability to live it fully is inectious and inspiring.
Thank you both for taking the time to share your perfect little home as well as to the beautiful places it’s taken you and given us a peek into your wonderful lives. I hope you’ll consider sharing the changes you intend to make in this (already) delightful abode as well as well as the awesome video/photography of your adventures in this little piece of mobile heaven. Peace and best wishes.
I love this bus! It si so pretty and open, and I love the lights over the windows. Well done!
The video was awesome !! Looks like a dream come true !!
That’s a cool bus! I wonder how it works when you’re driving and you can’t see out the back windows? I guess you rely heavily on the side mount mirrors.
We’ve always heard about buses turned into a tailgater’s paradise, seen them as tour buses, and even have heard of them being made into tiny dwellings before. Honestly, I never really gave any of them a second look until I saw this one. This couple has done an amazing job with the transformation of this bus. Not even at first glance do you think it’s a “Hippie” bus. The color palette is perfect and I love the layout. I have NEVER wanted to live like this, but after seeing this bus, I can imagine all of the possibilities. It’s a pretty powerful thing when one design can change a person’s mind. I have been following their adventures for over a month now. Congrats to this couple on a job very well done.
Absolutely LOVE this!!!!!
This has been my favorite bus conversion since you first shared it with the public – (2 years ago?) It’s great to see that you’ve been able to keep things so simple and uncluttered. Very helpful for you to share what works and what doesn’t – eg. no to the stove – yes to the cool shower rod. When we are putting our own tiny spaces together, all these tips add up and get filed away.
I think what I love the most, is seeing the two of you having such a good time – thank you so much for sharing your ‘on the road’ pictures – I’m practically salivating at what is possible after a very long Vermont winter of being snowed in for much of the time. What a wonderfully refreshing way of life the two of you have. Kudos!!!
oh – for Michelle Ellig – there are sites for full time RV ers that explain how to take care of the legalities and which states are the most advantageous to use as a home base for taxation purposes – AARP is a terrific resource if you are a member – they are a fountain of information for that kind of thing. Even if you are not over 50 – it’s still a good idea to go through their channels (I’m sure you have a relative who’s a member) ‘cos much of their information is with an eye on guarding your money to last through retirement also, while having the best time possible, living a fun life.
Best bus conversion I’ve seen. Most are dark and messy looking. Congrats on living the perfect life
