Their Short Bus with a Residential-Size Shower

This post contains affiliate links.

When Andrew was done with military life, he wanted to do something different and found van life on YouTube and began a bus build. Susanna grew up in a small town in the Midwest and was traveling to see more of the country. The couple met during Andrew’s bus conversion process and hit it off — marrying and moving into the bus together just a few months later!

The bus has a fantastic standard-size shower and a Nature’s Head composting toilet. There’s a fixed bed in the back, and they made a home for their very special espresso machine (Andrew won Susanna’s heart with a maple latte, the story goes). Enjoy the tour below!
