This couple jumped into skoolie life on a bit of a whim after “roughing it” in an Airbnb in the woods. Instead of DIY-ing the entire bus, they took on extra wedding videography gigs to pay professionals to do things like electrical work — which is pretty clever!

They chose to do a huge roof raise — a whole 25 inches — in order to give lots of extra headroom inside the bus. Additionally, they put in RV windows instead of bus windows, meaning they have a lot more privacy and retain more heat than a traditional skoolie. What do you think?

Here’s an awesome 2018 Mercedes Sprinter that’s been home to the couple over @thedesertcruiser for the past couple years. They’re upgrading to a larger rig and hoping to find a new owner for this one.

Birch plywood makes up most of the interior of the van, which features bench seating, a fixed bed, and a kitchenette with a propane cook top. There’s a great pull-out shelf in the garage of the van and a large rooftop deck. What do you think?

When their lease was close to expiring, Hannah and Danny knew they had no desire to renew it, but also weren’t sure about their next move. That’s when they landed on a bus conversion! Both of them quit their jobs, so they could work full-time on the bus conversion (they’ve since gotten travel/remote work).

The bus is gorgeous, with a spacious kitchen and a great back-of-the-bus design with a side-by-side bed and bathroom that allows for a spacious shower. In the front of the bus, there’s an L-shaped couch that doubles as a guest bed, and a special puppy corner for their dog! What do you think?

Once they got free from student loans, this awesome couple felt ready to chase their dream of traveling the continent in a DIY van conversion. Their rig has a queen-sized bed on a lift system, an indoor bathroom, and even a convection oven/dehydrator.

An awning helps keep the place cool, and they opted out of solar power and instead installed a second alternator. Their rig is ready to go off-roading and take them wherever they want to go! For now, they aren’t working on the road, but living off their savings.

Rakel and Sigurd were teachers with a big house, but they wanted something more! So they decided to make a huge lifestyle shift and purchase a van to convert into their home.

The van has a beautiful nature and floral aesthetic, with spring green cabinets, faux plants, and leaf patterns. They have a fixed bed, micro kitchen with two burners and a sink, and an adorable Cubic Mini wood stove. How lovely!

Scott and Susan Burbank are a retired couple who decided to build their own Freightliner motorhome because, at 6’8″ tall, Scott simply couldn’t be comfortable in most standardized motorhomes. So they acquired a retired semi-truck and spent 14 months converting it into their dream home on wheels.

The truck was originally just an empty shell with cables everywhere since it used to be a mobile computer lab owned by Microsoft. But Scott and Susan worked diligently, spending 10-hour days, 6 days a week, to turn it into the beautiful custom home it is today. They even invented a 5-foot murphy bed-style shower to save space!

The road to van life hasn’t been easy for this couple. It all started when Daphne outfitted a van for herself and left Matt in New York, so she could go travel. After he spent some time visiting her in the van, he wanted to join her full-time. But, Daphne’s van was totaled in a car crash right after Matt sold his house.

Both homeless, the couple decided to build out a second van and travel together. A professional musician, Daphne performs and teaches remote flute lessons. Matt does freelance drafting for roofing companies. They strayed from the norm in the van world and chose wallpaper rather than shiplap for their walls. Pretty awesome!
