Thor and Deb met later in life as part of a “hardcore hiking group” in Phoenix, Arizona. The chemistry was instant; soon, the couple traveled together and wanted to do it full-time! They purchased the bus from another couple and made some upgrades to make it work for them.

The bus features a neat modular couch that reconfigures based on their needs and offers plenty of storage. They have a rooftop deck, a large kitchen, a standing desk, a compact wet bath with metal around the bottom, and lovely penny tiles on the top. Enjoy the tour of their remarkable space below!

Tyme and Andy are a young couple who have taken an excellent alternative path to “home” ownership. Instead of settling down in Upstate New York, where they’re from, they built a fantastic bus conversion and chased the sun in their school bus conversion.

Tyme loves interior design and was excited to design the bus—and the results are impressive! Especially since they only spent about $30,000 on converting it. You’ll love the large bathroom in the back of the home. Enjoy the tour below.

Matias and Austina got a fantastic deal on their bus! It cost them just $3,000 to acquire the bus, and they spent about $18,000 overall on the conversion (although they admittedly didn’t keep receipts). Matias had the idea to jump into nomadic life first, but Austina eventually came to the concept, and now they love nomadic life.

The bus has a fabulous L-shaped kitchen with a propane stovetop and mini fridge. They built a dinette for eating and working, and there’s a comfortable couch. They went with a Separett toilet in their bathroom. What’s your favorite feature of this family’s budget bus build?

Doug and Mindy had been bus drivers and subway operators up until retiring. Nothing had been handed to them; they weren’t wealthy: they had no construction experience — but they knew traveling the continent in a converted bus was their dream! So they found a transit bus at auction and began converting it.

The bus has an incredible amount of solar, so Mindy can bake and cook with all electric appliances. To keep costs down, they used mostly reclaimed and recycled materials found on Facebook Marketplace. Doug even got special signs designed to flash in the LED destination sign area, so he can change them depending on his mood! This couple is just too sweet — you’re going to love the tour below.

This 2005 Freightliner FS-65 2WD has been lovingly converted into a school bus tiny house! It has one of the largest shower stalls I’ve ever seen in a conversion, which takes up half of the bathroom that spans the entire width of the school bus.

Besides the impressive bathroom, the kitchen is also roomy, with large butcher block countertops on each side of the bus. It even has an oven, which many nomadic homes opt out of! The current owner is asking $40,000 or your best offer. The house is in Phoenix, Arizona.

Christian and Kelsie sold their brick-and-mortar home so they could transform a school bus into a home on wheels! And they did an awesome job with the conversion, including a classy L-shaped kitchen, queen-sized bed, and spacious shower stall with a skylight into their creative layout.

The couple married young — at 19 and 21 — and have made their dreams come true! They pick up odd jobs, and she works remotely as an online tutor so that they can enjoy this lifestyle. Let us know which feature of their school bus conversion you love most!
