While you might be able to fathom having a family with toddlers in a skoolie, you might think it can’t be done with teens and tweens — but this family of 5 has proved otherwise! They have a 14, 11, and 10-year-old and have been on the road now for three years after downsizing from a 270

Their IncrediBus has a super unique layout, with one bunkbed over the cab (there’s a two-foot roof raise), two couches that fold into a king bed, and then a back teen room that’s been wonderfully decorated with pictures and posters. There’s an awesome Q&A with the family that you can read after the photo tour of their rig!

Tyler and Juniper lived a minimalist life in Hawaii (Tyler even did mini-van life), and weren’t interested in paying rent when they got back to the mainland. While expecting baby Atlas, they decide to buy and renovate a shuttle bus.

Their budget-friendly build used tons of recycled and repurposed materials. They even kept an old bench seat to provide seating for Juniper and Atlas while Tyler drives. Enjoy the tour 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.

Jenn was running a grooming business, working 60-70 hours a week. Kyle was staying home with their three kids and constantly shuffling them from school to sports to activities. They were fed up with the rat race and decided it was time for something new. A year later, they had moved into their awesome coach bus tiny home.

The bus has a large kitchen area, oodles of power and plenty of undermount storage for tools, water and all the extras. They have a special gaming space set up for the their son, bunks for the kids and a residential King-sized bed where the family can all hang out and have movie night. What a cool family.

There’s no chance of this family being caught without power! Dad Derek got the wild idea to move his wife and two young kids into a school bus, and he pulled out all the stops with his brilliantly-designed solar system, fold-down bench seat for safe car seat travel, and large IKEA-mattress-sized bunks for his littles to grow into.

They have a big kitchen with some cool dual-drawers that hide knives from little fingers, and an awesome toy/book drawer. Raising their kids on the road has given them amazing opportunities, and they look forward to “road-schooling” for years to come.

Matt and Nikki were supposed to get married in 2020, but when those plans got messed up, Nikki slowly started convincing Matt that a bus conversion would be a super fun lifestyle change. At the time they were childless, but the couple just moved into the bus and are expecting a baby any day now!

Nikki spent a lot of time at their local Maker’s Space in Canada, where there are all kinds of tools available for projects. She learned a lot from the folks there, and the couple also relied heavily on family members to help with different aspects of their build. The final result is breathtaking!

Dustin’s commercial HVAC job had him constantly traveling for work and kept him away from his family. One day it clicked that he would much rather travel with his wife (Sky) and daughter (Aria), and since Sky had always wanted a bus, they went on Facebook Marketplace and got one!

The couple still own their home in Pennsylvania, and rent it out. That provides them with the income needed to travel full-time and not work on the road. Aria does school from the bus, so as long as there’s wifi, they can go wherever they want.

Their bus looks awesome, and just wait until you see how proud Aria is of her bedroom!

This couple with school-aged children is living in their second bus conversion after selling the first one and building out a Thomas Saf-T-Liner to better meet their needs. In fact, they even make money on the side helping others renovate their buses!

The bus features an L-shaped lounge area that doubles as the dining room, and a huge Navy blue and white kitchen. Mom and dad asked the kids what they really wanted in the bus, and they chose monkey bars! Each kid was also permitted to paint their bunk area however they liked.

In the back you’ll find the Master bedroom, complete with a vanity for mom. See the full bus tour, brought to us by Tiny Home Tours, below!

Family Living in Their Second Skoolie Home

For seven years this family had a successful gymnastics business they ran out of a bus — but when 2020 hit, they went out of business almost instantaneously. Savings kept them afloat through October 2020, when they realized they needed to do something if they wanted a home.

So despite the difficulties and stresses associated with losing their income, they made the best of it and converted their work bus into their skoolie home! Now the couple and their son (and dog) live full-time in the bus, which they converted using furniture from their home and other repurposed materials to save money.

You can follow them as they continue making lemonade over at @raisingkindnessadventures.
