This is the story of Travis and Destoni’s school bus tiny home, online they are known as Sloth High Five (Instagram). Prior to embracing the bus life, they were deep in debt, working like crazy, and feeling like they were not making any forward progress. That’s when they decided to throw away the “rules” that they had been taught.
So they made some bold moves… They sold their home, took the equity and paid off their debt and used what was left over to buy and build out the school bus which cost them approximately $19,000. Now they get to travel quite a lot, and to make money, they simply stop in places they love and take seasonal jobs. This is what they’ve been doing for about a year, and so far, they absolutely love it. Be sure to watch the full video tour and interview with them below thanks to our friends over at the Tiny Home Tours YouTube Channel.

Couple Sell House in Florida, Pay Off Debt, And Build A School Bus Conversion For $19k
Before the bus, they lived in a 4/2 house in Florida! They sold it, took the equity, paid off their debt, and built out this school bus. They didn’t even finish it completely before hitting the road.
They’ve been on the road since March of 2019. To make money, they take up resort jobs or any other seasonal jobs in any towns that they like. It’s only their first year on the road, so they are still building everything out and getting used to the lifestyle.
Their school bus conversion even has solar panels so they can have off-grid power. The bus has an X-box for entertainment, pop-up television, records, movies, all the goodies…
They admit that life on the road is still “life”, having its challenges, but ultimately they love traveling so much and the freedom, adventure, and experiences that the lifestyle is offering them.
