    This I would definitely like, it would be one of my choices for going tiny.
    This one has been done nicely and looks good too!
    A converted railroad vista dome car though not exactly tiny would be among the top of my list also.

    How did they get an entire house in a bus?? The décor is gorgeous and it’s so roomy! The bathroom is wonderful!

    Looks like the bathroom is an add-on at the back of the bus?
