Justin grew up road-tripping with his family as a kid, and wanted to keep that tradition alive as a young adult. So he bought a school bus and created a custom party bus, complete with a one-of-a-kind bar so he can mix drinks (when parked, of course — don’t drink and drive!).
He doesn’t live in his rig full-time, so he created it with space for friends to sleep and congregate so he could travel with a group and have a good place to hang out. Inside the bus he can sleep three, and you can even pitch a tent on the roof-top deck! He chose the bar over a bathroom, and says so far he has no regrets (#priorities).
I love his innovative design for a passenger seat, and his honesty in his Tiny Home Tours interview about the real costs of keeping an older bus running. Including the bus cost itself, he’s spent $12,000 to date. Enjoy the tour below!

Nice Live Edge counter tops, but driving with all those “Open Alcohol Containers” in the window, LMAO… Look out! Especially in the South as you drive through the “Dry States” ….
Ok in California at least, a motor home can have open containers as long as they are out if reach of the driver! It’s nice to have the department of housing tag on your VW van, just saying…
Really nice digs, man. Beautiful bar counter, and I love the ceiling! Great job!
