Family Trades “Normal” Life for Full-Time Bus Living


This awesome family of three was tired of the 9 to 5 and stay-at-home life, so they decided to try out bus life instead! They didn’t go into debt while converting their rig, and because of that they’re able to live off some Etsy income and part-time seasonal jobs they pick up on the road as they go.

That lifestyle allows them to spend large chunks of time enjoying travel and seeing the country. They homeschool, and son Will has an awesome bunk and toy closet to keep all his treasures. While they originally had built-in benches in the bus, they traded those in for a comfy couch. They also removed their wood-burning stove after finding it more frustrating than helpful.

Tiny Home Tours interviewed the family and did an awesome tour of their bus, which you can enjoy below. Follow the family on Instagram here.
