Get excited to tour this 2003 40ft Bluebird All-American bus renovated by Erika and Matt for their family. The couple is transitioning to doing volunteer work abroad, and they’re selling their DIY conversion, so someone else can enjoy it as much as they have.

The bus truly has everything you could need, from a spacious well-designed kitchen to a huge back bedroom and awesome off-grid bathroom, to an epic solar system that will keep you powered up wherever you go. Check out the pictures and video tour below and contact them if you want to buy the skoolie.

While most people choose skoolie life so they can travel the country (or continent), JT, Berenise and their son Asher have been renovating a school bus to use as a mobile mission base. The family spent about 11 months in Mexico and Brazil working among the hurting and homeless. They wanted to continue that work, but while still having a “home base” of their own. So they built a skoolie!

“We can assist in feeding them, showering them, entertaining them with a projector on the side of the bus and more!” they wrote us. What a beautiful idea — and a beautiful bus. Check out more of their story below!

Well, we have never seen this before! A double-decker coach bus turned into a full-time home for a family of 8. This dad was tired of missing out on his kids’ childhoods chasing money to pay for the “good life.” After a family vacation to Utah, he and his wife decided to take his software work remote and find a way to travel full-time.

So they bought a double-decker coach bus and with the help of a professional company turned it into the most incredible home complete with 6 bunk beds, a convertible bed/bedroom for mom & dad, two bathrooms, and one shower! While the video below shows off the home before they started their cross-country tour, Instagram reveals they’ve been loving #buslife since this was shot.

Everyone has different reasons for choosing nomadic living, but for this family, #buslife is giving them the opportunity to scout out the country in search of land to put a home and homestead! They don’t have any particular ties to one place, so they are trying out all the places.

This is actually their second bus conversion, this one is much larger and comes with tons of undermount storage, including what will be a secret playroom for their daughter! They have oodles of solar power (enough to run an ice machine in their full-size fridge), tons of windows, and a gorgeous design.

Matt and JoAnna bought a home and kept sinking money into it. When they saw other families turning to school bus life, they decided to join their ranks and move their family of five (three boys, ages 7, 5 and 6 months) into a bus home!

In terms of family-friendliness, this bus conversion checks all the boxes: There’s a spacious living area for family time, a kitchen with all the counter space for prepping family meals, a tub, a washer/dryer unit, and bunks for the kids and a private bedroom for mom and dad.

Tiny Home Tours took us on a bus walkthrough which you can watch below. Plus you’ll get the details on their bus name, “Businante.”

Once again, here’s a family with small kids taking advantage of the skoolie lifestyle! The Stone family is homeschooling in their DIY rig, called the “Green Bean,” which they spent about $15,000 making into their home on wheels.

The couple did all the work themselves, saving a lot of money in the process. They’ve been on the road for a couple months now, chasing the coastline and searching for warmer weather. Because the home is off-grid, their month-to-month expenses really only include the cost of fuel and the occasional campsite (they boondock most of the time).

Their girls, Pepper and Violet, have awesome bunks near the back of the bus with climbing stones, and plenty of room for toys under their dinette. Watch the full tour from Tiny Home Tours below!

The Barefoot Bandits wanted to get away from the rat-race and spend more time together as a family, so they sold everything and bought and converted a bus into their full-time home.

Now mom, Jacq, “wild-schools” her kids as they travel Oregon (COVID-permitting). They created the most beautiful home, with a giant counter for food prep, school, and arts & crafts, as well as a giant shower! Jacq’s husband was too tall for the curvature of the bus, so they cut out a hole and extended it an extra two feet in the air.

The two older girls have their own special bunk spaces, and the youngest sleeps with mom and dad. The cactus mural on the outside of the bathroom makes the place special. Enjoy the photos below and the full video tour with Tiny Home Tours!

This is Our Dharma Tribe: David, Melanie and little Alice (plus two pups!) living in an amazing DIY skoolie bus conversion.

The Canadian family moved into their bus home in September of 2016 and are now documenting their skoolie life on Facebook and Instagram. The 2000 Thomas Flat Nose bus boasts about 210 sq. ft. and a 5.9 Cummins motor, and cost them $4,000. They currently stay in Stony Plains, Alberta and have spent $10,000 on the remodel (they still need solar and water tanks to finish the home).

Enjoy the pictures and be sure to follow them on social media! Links to their profiles are below the pictures.
