$10k including the bus? A skoolie may be your only real option- a trailer for a tiny house of the sizes you would need is going to start well above $5k.
So you're going to want a bedroom, a kitchen, living room. How about a working shower? Working toilet? What about a "garage" area? Many dedicate a section of the rear to storing things this way.
In terms of water, are you going to want working faucets/sinks? How about hot water, or is just cold fine?
In terms of climate control- are you going to want or need air conditioning, or do you think you can you make due with fans? How about during colder months, will you need heat? If so, what would you prefer, a wood stove, or something you fuel up (propane or diesel)?
