The Hancock family was ready to see more of the world. Mom and dad had been born, raised, and lived in the same city their whole lives and wanted their kids to have more experiences with the world than they did. So they bought a bus to travel in during their wedding photography off-season.

Incredibly, their 40-foot 2001 Bluebird skoolie conversion took only 69 days to complete! And you wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at it, with the large benches for family time in the living room, the spacious kitchen, and the neat bed set-up in the back of the rig. Enjoy the tour!

Jordan & Sam lived full-time on the road in this amazing renovated Skoolie for a few years before buying an old home that they’re now renovating! They still live part-time in their rig, chasing adventure when they hear it calling.

Their skoolie is all wine-themed, complete with a cork wall, “wine cellar” drawer, and wine box storage. All the bibliophiles will love the pop-out bookshelf, and if you’re working on the road, take inspiration from their cool office space. Let me know what you think.

Deyana was teaching virtually before it became “a thing” in 2020, so there was nothing holding her back from life on the road! She chose a school bus over a van for the affordability and was able to get her entire bus home complete for about $30,000.

It took 11 months for her to complete the renovation which includes a two-part kitchen, a 24×24 shower stall, a couch-to-bed, and a fixed bed with a dog nook underneath. She has a security system installed to help her feel safer on the road alone.

Tim Gibson is on a mission to paint 10,000 flowers in murals all across the United States — the idea is that it would be one giant floral mural in small sections everywhere in the country, connecting communities with the beauty of art.

To get to all these towns, Tim takes his bus conversion home. He stores paint and supplies under his bed, he has a flip-down outdoor table and a long table inside. While he doesn’t have an electrical set-up yet, that’s next on his list! His biggest challenge? Stealth parking in a flower-covered rig!

Hugo and Kaori started dating and later discovered that both of them wanted to travel the United States — he wanted a van, and she wanted an RV. They compromised and bought a short bus that had been used as a party bus for a few years, complete with a ball pit and neon lights.

They had one last party in the bus before stripping it down and transforming it into their home. They have a huge desk that runs along one room for the couple to work their remote jobs, as well as a custom welded bed and a kitchen with plenty of space for cooking from scratch.

Thomas and Bianca are photographers who were ready to leave their Philadelphia apartment and explore the country more! So they purchased a bus for just over $6k and spend $20k making it into home sweet home.

They chose a unique black and white (mostly black) color scheme, complete with a dark tin ceiling and checkboard tile flooring. A neon sign with their bus name, “Avoid Highway,” hangs above their bed. They got in touch with us and answered some questions about their bus which you can read below!

“Why pay someone else to do something when you could learn to do it yourself and have that skill forever?” Tyler of the Broken Compass Bus heard that quote from a #buslifer when he and his wife, Raela, first began their bus build-out, and he took it to heart. From electrical to plumbing to woodworking, he learned everything he could from YouTube to create their amazing home.

Tyler is also a traveling musician, which between Raela’s travel agent work, pays their on-the-road bills. It’s a huge upgrade from the time that he worked 6 days a week, just waiting for one day to enjoy himself before going back to the grind. Enjoy their bus tour below!

Sylvie and Yvan happened upon bus life somewhat accidentally: When Yvan traded his Mercedes for an RV, they discovered the joys of camping, and before they knew it they were living full-time and converting a 1973 GMC 4905A bus into their home.

They recently sold this build and are now renovating a 1995 MCI 102DL3 into their new home, which I can’t wait to see! But for the meantime, you should check out the video tour of their GMC bus. It includes all kinds of awesome features, such as a reclining couch with a projector screen, and a relatively large bathroom.

Follow the couple on Instagram here.
