You might remember Rachel and Adam from our interview with them back in 2020. They are an awesome couple who did their own bus renovation and travels with rescue animals — including two bunnies! Well, they contacted us with new pictures since they’ve done some updates to their bus.

This week celebrates four years that the couple has been on the road full-time. They sold their home, got rid of their mortgage, and have enjoyed seeing the country together while working remotely. Enjoy the photos and interview below.

Chris told his grandmother as a kid that he wanted to grow up and live in the woods with his dog — and for the past 11 years, that’s more or less what he has done! He’s had two vans and a Class A RV before deciding to build his dream rig school bus conversion.

The bus offers a much sturdier design than his former RV, allowing him to use high-quality materials so his home will stand the test of time. He has a roof-top deck with flip-up railings, a perfectly functional kitchen, a large comfortable bedroom, and a bathroom without compromise. What do you think of his setup?

Allison & Nick purchased their bus somewhat impulsively, but they diligently converted it into the gorgeous nature-inspired skoolie it is today over the course of two years! During that time they were largely working full-time, saving money for their adventure.

They’ve been on the road for 6 months, enjoying all their hard work. They chose tons of natural materials like hardwood floors, quartz countertops, porcelain tiles, and a pine ceiling. But they also included the comforts of home with their bathtub and a sweet gaming set-up. Enjoy!

This couple enjoyed working on yachts for a while until they were inspired to buy a short school bus to convert into their DIY motorhome. They fixed it up and used it on weekends at first, but they grew tired of the “go-go-go” lifestyle and eventually quit their jobs so they could hit the road, enjoying a more relaxed pace of life.

Their short school bus conversion has a beautiful bathroom, plenty of seating for guests (which also doubles as their bed), and a special higher purpose: they use it to foster dogs on the road.

Gillian’s school bus conversion, “Jungle” has more color than most 2,500-square-foot homes! She left her career in set design, her 16-hour days, and her long commutes to NYC and LA to enjoy life as an entrepreneur on the road.

Gillian’s bus features tons of her own textile work (much made from ice tie-dye techniques), an oven, an oversized couch that doubles as a guest bed, and tons of jungle-y accents like bamboo curtains and bold peel-and-stick wallpaper. She does pop-up shops wherever she parks and sells her art along with vintage and thrift goods she finds during her travels.

Ryan lost his Disney engineering job back in 2020, but he used that as a launching pad for a whole new lifestyle! He had been interested in tiny homes before, but finally had a reason to purchase a 2005 Bluebird International and make it into a gorgeous school bus motorhome.

His decor is all cabin-inspired, and he dedicated most of the bus to a huge kitchen and lounge area where he could easily entertain plenty of people. His couches even create a huge king-size bed situation for overnight guests. What’s your favorite part of his rig?

This awesome family of 6 set out on the road over a year and a half ago in their 40-foot converted bus. They wanted to educate their four boys about the world outside of Quebec. The couple sold their home and are now living off of that money and their savings.

Their bus has two sets of bunk beds for the boys, a spacious back bedroom for mom and dad, and a wet bath for cleaning up. Their huge kitchen has plenty of storage and all of them can sit at their banquette for dinner. What a cool family!

Ben and Tate are the proud owners of this amazing school bus conversion which they call “Ola.” The couple actually purchased the bus in high school and worked on converting it so they would have a home of their own when they got married in July of 2021. Now they are expecting a little boy and plan to raise him “tiny” as well!

Their DIY conversion was done on a budget. They bought the bus for $5k and put between $15k and $20k into the beautification process! Right now they have a spot parked on a ranch, but they travel when they want to and have an awesome home base wherever they take it.

This is a fully-converted off-grid school bus that’s a great blend between professional and DIY! The solar, plumbing and deck were all professionally installed, while the rest was wonderfully built out by the original owner.

There’s a secret hide-out/second bedroom under the main bed that looks super cozy! The bathroom has a Nature’s Head composting toilet, and in the kitchen, there are beautiful epoxied wood countertops. The rig is for sale for $35k if you’re ready to start your bus life journey!
