Well, we have never seen this before! A double-decker coach bus turned into a full-time home for a family of 8. This dad was tired of missing out on his kids’ childhoods chasing money to pay for the “good life.” After a family vacation to Utah, he and his wife decided to take his software work remote and find a way to travel full-time.
So they bought a double-decker coach bus and with the help of a professional company turned it into the most incredible home complete with 6 bunk beds, a convertible bed/bedroom for mom & dad, two bathrooms, and one shower! While the video below shows off the home before they started their cross-country tour, Instagram reveals they’ve been loving #buslife since this was shot.

Totally amazing! And so beautiful! I love the way the tables are tucked away when you don’t need them, but are so incredibly easy to pop up when you do. The upstairs vacuum idea is genius. You have created a remarkable home for traveling. I think you are the new winners of the “Best Use of Space” award! Enjoy your travels and be safe.
When you are traveling out in the middle of nowhere and the bus breaks down… what will it cost to have it towed to a repair shop & how long will it take to repair… and how much money to repair? Where will your family of eight live while your bus is being repaired? Where will you eat? What is all this going to cost? Will you have to rent a car while your bus is being worked on? More costs! This is exactly why building a bus to live in and travel in is not a good idea to do so. Most people that build a bus find out this reality the hard way and soon afterward sell the bus at a huge financial loss… to try to recover from the huge debt they have acquired when the bus broke down. Regardless of “living your dream” of traveling in a bus… at some point the bus will break down, leave you stranded… and cost a huge amount of money to repair. Most “bus people” learn this lesson the hard way.
You must be fun to be around.
Sure he is… but he’s very practical. He utilises the “what could possibly go wrong with this” mindset and plans accordingly. Absolutely nothing wrong with that. And you???
Wow! Fabulous! This is so spacious and livable that those who live in areas that have hurricanes or huge fires should consider living in one of these. Danger coming your way? Unhook, lock down the site and drive to a safe place. When you return, you haven’t lost your possessions and cleaning up the site should be relatively easy. Heck, these would even ride out an earthquake with ease! It should be considered, at least, and the government should think this is a good idea, too.
And make sure you plan your travel routes carefully, though, because not all bridges are tall enough for this to pass under safely!
