Skoolie Stays offers the chance to sleep in a beautifully converted iconic American school bus in both summer and winter.
Fully off-grid, stunning design detail and with 4 comfortable berths, this is your chance to escape it all without compromising on comfort.
The Skoolie Stays bus has been carefully designed to balance luxury, freedom and environmental impact. This is not your average ‘back-to-basics’ camping holiday, far from it!
The bus interior has been lovingly hand-built using pine, recycled American oak, and recovered teak. We’ve added our own design features, blending the earthy tones of the engineered oak herringbone flooring with the copper shine of the painstakingly assembled ‘penny-table’ epoxy resin countertop. We’ve recycled and repurposed where we can, using parts of the original bus to link to its history and give them new life.
We have worked hard to transform this space in the most sensitive way we can, choosing materials that are environmentally-friendly. It’s fully insulated with sheep’s wool, incorporates water-saving technology and runs off of solar panels.
A tiny-home it may be, but cramped it is not. American buses come in many different shapes and sizes and we chose this particular bus for conversion because it offered increased height inside and would allow us to maximise living space. The result is spacious accommodation that blends old and new, natural materials and modern technology and the best of American and British.
