  • Our family of 4 converted our school bus Chitty Bang into a tiny house from October 2015 until November 2016 with other enhancements, changes, and renovations over the years. We traveled and lived full time in the bus from November 2016 until May 2020 with our English Mastiff and cat in tow. We were able to travel all over Texas, to Washington state and down to AZ. We never pushed the engine, and we traveled every 3 months between places to ensure our engine would last.
  • We never had any issues after we changed the tires/ oil/air filters/radiator fluid/transmission fluid and injectors in 2016 before we hit the road. You CAN live off the grid in this bus We did many times for months at a time.
  • We lived in it and used the rooftop AC running a 2000-Watt genny in Arizona, as well as simply plugging into a house, RV park, or campground 110v, 30 amp, or 50-amp service.
  • This bus was designed for us to be able to fully live off grid, only needing to have access to water to run our shower and sink, and access to trash to dump the compost toilet and house hold trash.
