High Top Bus Conversion Turned Tiny Home for This Couple

Joel & Rachel worked hard for three years to make it possible for them to buy a bus conversion and travel on the road. They both work remotely for the same company, and hope to continue to be able to travel and keep earning an income!

The couple wisely rented out an old RV right after their apartment lease was up to make sure they could handle living tiny together. Even though the RV was awful, they realized they *could* live tiny and when they found this bus – previously converted on HGTV – they jumped on the opportunity.

They’ve been working hard to convert the bus into a space that works for them, and they’ve done a fantastic job with the upgrades. Check it all out in the video tour from Tiny Home Tours below.

The grey couch and shiplap walls are all new updates!

What a lovely retro kitchen! All those cabinet doors are new and hand-crafted.

They plan to flip the bed sideways in the future.

    Love this one the best out of all the ones I’ve seen. I’m older and want to travel and this would so fit the bill for me and my dogs.
