FOTR - Families on the RoadAirstream

Bus Conversions


In 1966, the world's first SKOOLIE Bus was spotted traveling down Route 101 near the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The Hippie movement was beginning and the counter coulture was finding alternative ways to travel around the United States.

Miller Family

Discovering Us Bus

We left our 2800 sq foot home in TN to our college daughter and moved into our 270 sq foot Skoolie. The six younger kids are bus schooled and we all enjoy adventure and exploring the USA. Our business is helping other people enjoy the Skoolie lifestyle. We help other people convert their bus into a home on wheels and show them how to enjoy life on the road.
