The Miller family left the “normal” American lifestyle, sold their home, bought a bus, and started traveling the country in it with their two young children!

So far, they’ve been loving their simpler life, and enjoy making so many memories together as a family. You can read our Q&A with the family at the end of the photo tour!

Nikki’s bus is proof that maximalists can live tiny! An artist and web designer, Nikki knew what she wanted in a home, and she made it happen. There’s a desk for her web design, a large counter-top studio for her art, and most incredibly, a full-sized soaking tub in the middle of the bus with a 200-gallon water tank and on-demand hot water tank.

She also snuck in a side-by-side fridge & freezer, a massive farmhouse sink, and a washer/dryer unit. On the back of the bus, she has a spacious deck that houses her generator and more exterior storage. What more could you want?

This couple jumped into skoolie life on a bit of a whim after “roughing it” in an Airbnb in the woods. Instead of DIY-ing the entire bus, they took on extra wedding videography gigs to pay professionals to do things like electrical work — which is pretty clever!

They chose to do a huge roof raise — a whole 25 inches — in order to give lots of extra headroom inside the bus. Additionally, they put in RV windows instead of bus windows, meaning they have a lot more privacy and retain more heat than a traditional skoolie. What do you think?

Brittany and Justin converted their skoolie thinking they’d travel the country and find a new state to call home — but after months on the road, they discovered their hearts were in Colorado after all. They went back and found an awesome mountain cabin, which they bought and are renovating in between travels in their bus.

Their bus conversion features a built-in couch, office area, L-shaped kitchen, bathroom, and back bedroom. They used beautiful white tiling and warm wood accents to give their space a cozy and clean vibe. Check it out below!

James and Doreen had a 4,000-square-foot home, but the upkeep was just becoming overwhelming. So they decided to get a skoolie! Now they can visit their 4 kids (who all live in different places) and spend their springtime boating in Louisiana.

Their bus is unlike any we’ve seen before, with a full-size commercial kitchen (including THREE sinks), a table near the front window, and stucco walls on the inside of the bus. They chose not to have a hallway, and instead have a spacious bathroom. What do you think?

This is the fourth and final installment of Samantha and Herb’s fantastic caravan and bus conversions! Their beloved skoolie named Mr. Pemberton. The bus is their current home on wheels which is parked in Australia while they finish a European tour. Once they get back home Down Under, they’ll finish a lap around the continent.

They had to completely gut and overhaul the bus to bring it to its current glory. The sage green and white interior is absolutely dreamy, and it includes all the comforts of home (even a bathroom!). Enjoy Samantha’s story in her own words below!

Deyana was teaching virtually before it became “a thing” in 2020, so there was nothing holding her back from life on the road! She chose a school bus over a van for the affordability and was able to get her entire bus home complete for about $30,000.

It took 11 months for her to complete the renovation which includes a two-part kitchen, a 24×24 shower stall, a couch-to-bed, and a fixed bed with a dog nook underneath. She has a security system installed to help her feel safer on the road alone.

Holly and Dustin were tired of the typical rent trap and wanted to do something different. They took the first leap of flying to Florida to buy their bus and from there got to work creating a home. With little experience, it took them redoing almost everything 3 times to get the bus to where it is today.

But all that experience is paying off! They now pay their bills by converting buses for other people, and they are on the hunt for the right acreage where they can build a workshop to renovate buses and start a homestead. Enjoy the tour of their rig below!

Allison & Nick purchased their bus somewhat impulsively, but they diligently converted it into the gorgeous nature-inspired skoolie it is today over the course of two years! During that time they were largely working full-time, saving money for their adventure.

They’ve been on the road for 6 months, enjoying all their hard work. They chose tons of natural materials like hardwood floors, quartz countertops, porcelain tiles, and a pine ceiling. But they also included the comforts of home with their bathtub and a sweet gaming set-up. Enjoy!
