Skoolie / Motorhome / RV / Tiny Home / AirBNB
My journey with the bus has come to an end and it's time to pass this amazing mobile tiny home on to another for their adventures. The bus is currently configured as a skoolie / tiny home, but could easily be changed into a sweet party bus, AirBNB, guest house, or other use.
The bus started it's life as a 1991 Ward International 65 passenger school bus. It's loaded for mountain/winter driving. I converted it from a school bus into a skoolie / tiny home and took it on an epic 12,000 mile road trip from Denver to Alaska and back. Fully titled as a motorhome.
