Buslife offered a more affordable lifestyle to help Natalie and Gabe meet their goals. They purchase the bus already gutted, and moved in right away! They’ve been converting their rig as they travel and while they live in it, which is super neat.

We have some great pictures of their tiny home below, along with a Q&A that you can read. Enjoy!

Heidi did all the “right” things — got a college degree, got a job, worked hard. But she realized she hadn’t seen much of her city, let alone the country. So she took an entire year off work to work every day on converting her bus into an awesome skoolie!

Her tiny home meets all her needs and is decorated with her own awesome, eclectic style. She has a full bathroom with a DIY composting toilet, a comfy couch that converts to her office space, and a hammock swing that hangs out the handicap door. What do you think?

Erdinc, a musician who wanted to build a roof deck on a skoolie and use it for performances, built out this amazing skoolie over 8 months for about $16,000. As it happens, life has changed, and he needs to sell the rig.

The conversion featured a beautiful wooden ceiling, a long countertop with room for a camp stove, an office set-up, solar power, and a fixed back bedroom. He hasn’t finished the bathroom area yet but has it marked out. It could be yours for $31,000! He’s currently near Austin.

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?
