This is the skoolie that started it all for YETIBUS Builds. It’s the school bus conversion of Kyle Volkman, co-founder of YetiBus, who literally raised the roof with his first skoolie build.

The bus is a 1986 International. According to YetiBusBuilds.com, he has lived in it for 7 years full-time, and another 4 years part-time before that. Kyle would drive it around to different tiny house shows, and so he started getting hired to do conversions for other people when showing his bus around the country. So the company was named after this very first bus. This skoolie has lots of features, most notably, it’s powered by vegetable oil!

This is the story of Travis and Destoni’s school bus tiny home, online they are known as Sloth High Five (Instagram). Prior to embracing the bus life, they were deep in debt, working like crazy, and feeling like they were not making any forward progress. That’s when they decided to throw away the “rules” that they had been taught.

So they made some bold moves… They sold their home, took the equity and paid off their debt and used what was left over to buy and build out the school bus which cost them approximately $19,000. Now they get to travel quite a lot, and to make money, they simply stop in places they love and take seasonal jobs. This is what they’ve been doing for about a year, and so far, they absolutely love it. Be sure to watch the full video tour and interview with them below thanks to our friends over at the Tiny Home Tours YouTube Channel.

This is the story of Denise and her school bus conversion tiny home that she built after getting diagnosed with Leukemia a few years ago. She didn’t want traditional treatments, and going the non-traditional route meant insurance wasn’t going to cover her treatment here in the United States.

So she sold her house, her car, and just about everything she owned to build this school bus and be able to afford her treatments. With it, she plans to travel the country for as long as she can.

This is the story of Parker’s short school bus conversion with a Murphy bed. It’s a very well thought out custom motor home called Bird the Bus!

I commonly talk to people who build Sprinter Camper Van conversions that have $50k-$80k invested in their rigs. I always try to convince people to consider the mini school bus conversion over a van. This video is a good example of why I think this. Enjoy!
