How They Built Their Dream Bus in Just 3 Months

Raela and Tyler were working normal jobs when they got married and took a road trip for a honeymoon. They didn’t want to go back! Soon they got a big bus and turned it into their first home on wheels, which they traveled in for about a year.

After that year, they realized they needed something shorter if they wanted to get to some of the more remote places they had on their bucket list. So they sold the old bus and did this $40K conversion in just 3 months! Now they make money on the road as a musician and virtual assistant while enjoying all the country has to offer.

  • Raela and Tyler’s journey began with a honeymoon road trip, inspiring their nomadic lifestyle.
  • They converted a $40K bus in just three months, creating a cozy, wooden-toned tiny home.
  • Now, they earn a living on the road, embracing minimalism and the freedom of life on wheels.
