Audrey was a nurse and Brad had come to the States from Australia for school. When they met, pursuing their dream of traveling the country in a converted shortbus.

They just recently found a place they want to settle down, so the bus is for sale. It has a beautiful long countertop with a big sink and two-burner cooktop. There’s a lot of bench seating, a pull-out table, and a full-sized bed against the back of the bus. Let us know what you think!

Budd the Bus is the home-on-wheels for Ethan, a nomad who wanted to have his own place, without spending so much money on Colorado rent. He had already downsized to a studio apartment, so the bus gave him much more freedom without sacrificing much space.

His bus features an adorable wood-burning stove, a super-compact bathroom, a fold-down desk, and more! Enjoy the pictures and Ethan’s story below.

Rita does amazing paintings and murals as she travels the country in her pig-pink bus named “Wilbur” (like from “Charlotte’s Web”). What’s extra impressive is that she only spent $9,000 on the entire bus and build to create a warm, homey and functional rig.

A large section of her bus is dedicated to her art studio and supplies, but she still has space for a kitchen and couch-to-bed setup. While she built a shower in the bus, she quickly realized it was impractical and transformed it into a closet with a portable emergency toilet in the base. What do you think of her spot?

Gillian’s school bus conversion, “Jungle” has more color than most 2,500-square-foot homes! She left her career in set design, her 16-hour days, and her long commutes to NYC and LA to enjoy life as an entrepreneur on the road.

Gillian’s bus features tons of her own textile work (much made from ice tie-dye techniques), an oven, an oversized couch that doubles as a guest bed, and tons of jungle-y accents like bamboo curtains and bold peel-and-stick wallpaper. She does pop-up shops wherever she parks and sells her art along with vintage and thrift goods she finds during her travels.

Eric and Robbyn were nearing retirement age but thought they still had more years to work. That’s when a trip to Europe completely changed their perspective, seeing people who didn’t work themselves into the ground as they do in the U.S. That’s when they got the idea to stop living normally and find a way to travel!

Eric used his amazing carpentry skills to build out their shuttle bus home complete with a queen-sized bed (stationary), bathroom, and large galley kitchen space with tons of overhead cabinetry. Their only regret? They didn’t choose this life sooner!

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?

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!
