I may still be able to fulfill my skoolie lust short term if I buy an E450 Shuttle Bus and use that to pull an rv. Much cheaper than buying a normal F350 for >$30,000 and I can outfit the E450 as a travel vehicle and weekend getaway camper for when I want to camp solo. So many ideas, so little money!!

WOW! I love this thread, can't believe i missed it till now.

I will say, in defense of Tiny-home folks, that is kinda where I started my journey. I became embarrassed at the wasted space I was living in after my divorce(it was only 2,000 sq ft.). Don't get me wrong, I LOVED my full basement and miss it dearly, but the rest of the house was a waste of space, heating and cooling.

When I discovered folks LIVING in buses, I thought - I CAN DO THAT!!

Here I am 8 months later, wondering why I did not start sooner.

I am still fascinated by alternative living - mainly cob houses, earthships, and tree houses. I don't really understand the $80k boxes - what is the point?

Great thread

Same point as people that want already converted buses.

Some don't want to do all the work and planning necessary to convert a bus themselves but they want a reliable vehicle that's functional to live in now. Since nice low end converted buses sell for about 20k, those that can do. Most of us put in sweat equity to make these buses right because that's the way we can afford it. Some people enjoy learning the skills while others avoid learning the skills. If you build it, it's part of you. If you buy it, it's a possession.

Buses aren't exactly the same, but if you've got a bowling ball...
