Ginnie and Austin met in the Army and got married, eventually deciding to leave and get degrees with the GI Bill. They’re able to do online school and travel in their skoolie! Pretty amazing.

They have a gorgeous self-converted skoolie that cost them $32,000 to build out (including the bus cost). Enjoy the photo tour and read their story below!

Tim and Meg wanted to get out of the rut of office work and apartment life, so they converted a 1995 Thomas Vista into their cozy home on wheels.

The shorter bus still houses everything they need, like a kitchen (with an oven!), a mini wood-burning stove, and a snug back bedroom. They tell their bus life story below!

Lex and Liam decided to take on the amazing — and massive — project of converting a school bus into a tiny home on wheels. But their conversion is even more unique because they’ve been living in it during the conversion process!

For a year and a half, they’ve been making progress on the build, and it’s really starting to look like a home, complete with a beautifully tiled shower, spacious countertops, and a wood-burning stove. See how it’s all coming together below!

Lara and Julian began their tiny living journey hoping to stay free after years of school, but eventually ended up doing “normal life” with jobs and rent and typical work hours.

In 2019, the two environmentalists decided to take the plunge into a skoolie conversion, creating a space to use as a studio where Lara makes artwork and sustainable clothing to sell, their storefront, and even a spot to sell eco-friendly coffee! They host beach clean-ups and do other awesome work to protect the planet. Read their story below!

Yvan and Sylvie are on their third bus conversion and loving every minute of the freedom (and early semi-retirement) that bus life offered them. Their marriage was struggling with Yvan gone for work all the time and Sylvie at home running the family business. So Yvan convinced his company to let him travel in their bus conversion, and they sold the business.

This is actually their third bus conversion, and it’s absolutely brilliant!  Every inch of space has been carefully designed to be as functional as possible — and they even have an 8×8 bathroom in the back of the bus. The kitchen is large so they can do all the cooking they love, and they have a passenger seat up front so they can talk while driving. Pretty great!

Max & Miranda shoot elopements for 6 months of the year, and spent the rest of it traveling Australia in their self-converted Toyota Coaster! Today they’re here to tell us all about how they got into #buslife…

We purchased a Toyota Coaster bus and converted it into a motorhome. We live in it for 6 months of the year and travel around Australia during those months, the other 6 months we base ourselves in South Australia for work.

Ron and Jess were considering upgrading from their one-bedroom apartment when they went on a vacation to a 200-square-foot cabin and realized they could totally live tiny. That’s when they got hooked onto bus life on YouTube and the rest is history.

Their shuttle bus conversion is light and airy, with lightly-stained plywood ceilings, sage green countertops, and mood lighting all the way around the bus. They have a secret DIY composting toilet and a special kitty bunk bed for their fur babies. What do you think of their build?

Sydney and Albert jumped into vanlife two years ago, living in a Sprinter without the extra headroom, almost always cramped in the same space during the winter in Utah/Colorado. While they loved living nomadically, they also needed some more space — so they sold the van and purchased a Blue Bird bus.

Their budget was to spend no more converting the bus than they had gotten from the van sale, so they thrifted all kinds of materials and furniture in order to create a cozy space. A cubic mini wood stove keeps their home warm, and their large wet bath is extra luxurious! What do you think of their home on wheels?

Hunter & Carly first got their taste for tiny living from traveling in an RV, but wanted something that was their own. Initially, they considered converting a van or shuttle bus, but ultimately decided if they were going to go through all the trouble of DIY-ing a home, they wanted it to work for them for as long as possible!

Since they’re open to having kids someday, the couple got a “big bus” and even created a storage area that can convert to bunks if/when their family grows. They chose a big open floor plan with long couches, a spacious kitchen (with awesome live-edge countertops), and a cool bathroom with their Separette toilet above the wheel well. Enjoy their tour and let us know what you think!
