Skoolie vs Tiny House

Should you go with a tiny house or converted school bus? Both are big projects. Both can feel like a home. One has it’s own motor, the other needs a large tow vehicle. Jenna Spesard visits with Roman and Annie and get the full tour and backstory of their very home-like skoolie.

Dylan Tours Jenna’s House – Jenna Tours Dylan’s Van

Jenna Spesard & Dylan Magaster have traveled all over North America interviewing folks that live alternative tiny lifestyles. In the two videos below they tour each other’s tiny living spaces.

Jenna lives in a tiny house that she’s traveled in for more than 25,000 miles. She’s currently living in Oregon but spends much of her time these days traveling the world. On her YouTube Channel you can find many (but not exclusively) Tiny House tours and interviews. Subscribe to Tiny House Giant Journey on YouTube.

Dylan lives in a van conversion. The van cost him $2,000 and the DIY conversion was just $3,500. So while his living space is not as comfortable as Jenna’s it gives him the freedom to travel and live the life her wants. On his channel you will find many (but not exclusively) VanLife tours and interviews. Subscribe to Dylan Magaster on YouTube.

Stealth Van Dwellers Escape High Rent & Live Free

Jenna Spesard from Tiny House Giant Journey visits with Matt & Adriana who live full-time in their 2005 Sprinter van conversion that they’ve nicknamed Vanna White. Matt is a video producer and Adriana works in fine dining. They travel the country and experience living in all the places they choose.

Matt learned construction and auto mechanics during the van build. Over three months he and a friend converted the van. Many of the items in the van were reclaimed and up-cycled. It also has a complete kitchen including a large refrigerator. The bathroom is simply a marine toilet and they use a fitness club membership for showers, etc. Video tour below.
