Mike first fell in love with vanlife after he built out a ProMaster in Boston and traveled with his brother. Eventually, they sold that rig, and he went back to “normal” life, finding himself working in Florida where he met Sara. She’d never heard of vanlife, but he slowly convinced that getting a shuttle bus and doing a conversion in just 90 days would be a fun adventure.

They completed their conversion on schedule, quit their stable, well-paying jobs, and are now living off savings and what they earn as a part-time DJ and earring-creator. The bus has an incredible layout, with a full bathroom and a bed facing the “wrong” direction to allow for a small hallway and storage.

Experience really is the best teacher. After four years living in their first van conversion, musicians Savannah and Drew found themselves with no work due to the pandemic. With all that extra time on their hands, the couple saw it as a sign to start their dream build — a 2007 Ford Shuttle Bus.

Their previous nomadic life helped them know what they needed — and wanted — most in a home-on-wheels. From an air-conditioner that runs on solar power, to the coolest guest bed/seating set-up, to a projector system on magnets, this home has all kinds of neat features! And yes, there’s a tiled shower and a toilet, too.

Believe it or not, Savannah never wanted to live in a van — until she did some research and saw just how amazing van/bus conversions can be. Check out the video from Tiny Home Tours below.

Their Second Nomadic Build is PERFECT

Audrey and Paul bought their bus back in 2018 and spent 20 months making it into their amazing bus home. They spend half of what they used to in bills and utilities by living in their bus rather than a standard apartment and the best part? It’s all theirs, made exactly how they wanted it!

A former Marine, Paul is now a full-time student while Audrey works a number of mobile/remote jobs such as teaching yoga. They enjoyed a couple of months of traveling before settling down in an RV park near Paul’s school. The home has a cozy farmhouse chic vibe, and they built it out without any former experience in construction!

We got the chance to interview the couple, so be sure to check out the Q&A after the photo tour. Oh, and follow them on Instagram here.

John and Ina (@seawardshuttle on Instagram) bought this former nursing home shuttle bus and transformed it into a home (called the “Seaward Shuttle”) complete with surfboard and bike storage using many reclaimed materials and a lot of creativity.

They’re currently living off of their savings and enjoying traveling and surfing everywhere they go. They claim the bus feels spacious, and there’s even enough space for their beloved dog and a handful of houseplants. Make sure to watch the full video tour from Tiny Home Tours/YouTube below.
