Couple’s 2003 International with a Roof Raise


“We’re living small. But we’re living big!” That’s what Phyllis says about her life with her husband Steve in their 2003 International Bus. Less square footage — and wheels — have allowed the almost-retired couple to travel the country and meet all kinds of people.

They prioritized an open concept inside their bus, eventually even getting rid of the step-down shower to make room for storage. Two expansive countertops run alongside the interior of the bus, just past the living area all the way to their queen-sized bed. And the 12-inch roof raise allows for headroom and nearly 5 inches of insulation. What do you think?

    Lots of work went into this skoolie — it looks super-nice, & easy to maintain with lots of storage and a great long countertop for working, projects, or etc. Nice to see them living this adventure!!!
