Are you a regular camping and festival enthusiast interested in a more cozy home away from home while living on the road? Do you gravitate toward minimalism and modesty? Might you also be interested in Airbnb guests paying for all your seasonal travel expenses? If you answered yes to any other these, keep reading - we think this rig might be the one you're looking for. Plus! We'll drive it to you - see below!

This fully-loaded, 20ft ball of joy is your opportunity to cruise into the summer set up to enjoy your favorite bands, artists, neighborhoods, cities, campsites, and open roads that connect the most meaningful moments of your life. And while you're not on the road, rent it out! Airbnb Experiences are booming and this can definitely one!

We designed and created this skoolie with wanderlust, comfort, and adventure on our minds and are both happy and sad to offer it to a new fun-loving crew. We called it home for much of 2018 and made our way from border to boarder and coast to cost. The BRAND NEW ENGINE beckons for more and the V8 at its core guarantees you'll make it there with all your beloved people, pets, and provisions.

Forget Sprinter vans! Forget Airstreams! Forget Winnebagos! Those have no fun on the road, they feel so cramped, and they have no creativity! If you're creative, embrace it! This bus has a more roomy feel and will turn more heads. For the two of us and our 45 lb. dog, this tiny home was more than enough and will be the right fit for you! Plus, Sprinter vans, etc. are wayyyyy more expensive than they are worth. And the point of this lifestyle is to enjoy minimalism! IT'S OK THAT THIS BUS DOEN'T HAVE ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES. IT'S OK THAT IT'S NOT SHINY AND NEW. AGAIN, THAT'S THE POINT! MINIMALISM IS INTENTIONAL! Reuse before buying new! This move-in ready converted bus is yours for loving.

Thinking about a bigger bus? Anything over 20ft is a pain to park and costs more everywhere! THIS IS NOT A LARGE VEHICLE! Take it to the grocery store! Take it to a drive-in movie (trust us, we did it)! Drive it with ease!

Interested in selling goods or services as you travel? The unforgettable finishes of the interior are easy talking points and attractive to passersby. Plus, there is a lot of usable surface areas to set up product demos. The second captain's seat can be easily removed for creating more space in the interior!
