The Price Family is an adorable family of three who travels the country with their DIY skoolie and their dog. Despite having no previous building experience, Megan and Landon did a fantastic job creating a functional and happy tiny house.

Before leaving Texas to travel, the couple had a wedding photography/videography business, which they still run during wedding season. Enjoy our interview with this awesome family, and check out their cool conversion below.

Like so many others, Elizabeth joined vanlife because of the shutdowns of 2020. When she stumbled across vanlife on YouTube, she was hooked!

Through a series of events, she ended up purchasing a short bus and converting it into her own home on wheels. She has a remote job and is able to travel while living in her adorable bus named Wanda. The rig is perfect for her and her pets, and she loves life on the road. We had the privilege of interviewing her for this post, and you can read her story in her own words below.

Andy is a single dad who built this amazing skoolie so he could travel with his two kids when they aren’t in school. The bus includes a great couch for hanging out, a kitchen where he can cook homemade meals, some awesome bunks for his kids, and a larger bed for himself.

In 2011, he was trapped in an office building during an earthquake and thought he was going to die from its collapse. When he made it out largely unscathed, his life perspective was completely altered, and he ended up coming across nomadic life and realizing he wasn’t meant to work in an office all day. Enjoy his inspirational story below!

Anna and Josh spent four years converting their Bluebird bus into an incredible luxury tiny house on wheels. Because they took their time, they made the bus exactly how they wanted it to be and kept the build budget under $20,000!

While they’ve done plenty of travel in the bus, they’re currently “home” in Napa Valley on family land. They have an awesome covered porch area on-site, complete with a king-sized bed — outside — where they can relax and enjoy the views! Enjoy the tour of their splendid space below.

The Reiff Family love their life on the road in their roof-raise skoolie! Joel, Carrie, and their three preteen boys left Pennsylvania to travel west after completing their $70K conversion. They’re now enjoying extensive National Parks tours and getting used to homeschooling on the road.

They raised the roof in the middle of their skoolie to allow maximum headroom in the living room/kitchen. The home has tons of counter space and a bar area that gives the boys a spot to do bookwork or each lunch. Each boy has a private bunk space with storage, and there’s a main bedroom in the back for mom and dad. Oodles of solar power and batteries allow them to boondock for 10 days or longer at a time.

Back when Danny and Joy only had one child, they were hoping to make a home of their own but weren’t in a place to purchase a home in Florida where they were living at the time. So when a school bus came up for sale in their area, they decided, “Why not?”

Their skoolie has two big built-in couches that face each other, a galley kitchen, a 3/4 bathroom, and a back bedroom with a “kids’ nook” underneath the main bed. Check out the interview we did with the couple, along with a photo tour of their space, below!

Tal and Ori were living in Israel when they found out they were having twins. Realizing they wanted time to raise the girls and travel as a family, they sold all their belongings and came stateside to begin van life in December 2021.

Eventually, the van became too small for the four of them, so they upgraded to a self-converted skoolie. The skoolie has the original bus seats with 5-point harnesses for the girls, a separate playroom area, and a convertible couch for mom and dad. What do you think?

Michael is a musician who wanted a quiet place he could go to and write music. Originally he thought he’d convert a tiny home in just 3 months, but his attention to detail (and there are so many thoughtful features in this build!) meant it took 2 years and 8 months to see the finished product.

The cozy cabin skoolie has a huge rooftop deck, a stone-facade fireplace, and a really cool desk space that hides a full keyboard and a TV/computer monitor where he can edit his work. He has under-bed storage, a great kitchen, and a wet bath. Enjoy the tour!

Jessie and Ashley — the “howling wanderers” — had always wanted to travel, but when they saw friends decide to go tiny, they knew they were ready to make the change for themselves.

But it wasn’t immediate! A project they thought would only take a year ended up taking nearly two years as they worked full time while completing the build. The result, however, is a gorgeous skoolie with a cozy and moody interior that makes a perfect home for them and their four dogs! Read our interview with them after the photo tour below.
