We receive a lot of questions about our bus and why we’ve decided to live tiny, so we compiled a list of the most common ones. There’s a chance we might not have answered all your questions, so feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add it to the list!
We bought our bus off of Craigslist from a company that maintains school buses for Sarasota County, Florida. The bus had been a spare bus for one of the schools in the district.
Our bus is a 1995 International Bluebird 65 passenger with a 444e engine and Allison automatic transmission.
We paid $4700 for our bus
This is a really tough question to answer. It is ultimately better answered by you. We can however give you some things to consider. See our blog post on this subject there is simply too much to discuss here
Skoolie vs. THOW
We are by no means trashing the THOW community (we love them!) the Skoolie just better fit our lifestyle and plans.
We began our bus build in March of 2016 and moved into it in March of 2017.
The interior of the bus is about 200 sq ft. The length is 27′ and the width is 7.5′.
We have off-grid water capabilities and we’re working on solar in early 2018. We have a Nature’s Head composting toilet, so we do not produce black water.
Our bus is registered as an RV in Florida. We do have insurance on it and we do not need a special license to drive it.
