Episode Two: Luke Davis of Skoolie - From School Bus to Luxury Rolling Home


Not many people equate "school buses" to "luxury living," but if you check out Luke Davis's converted bus, you just might see things differently. Luke and his wife Rachel own Skoolie, a company that specializes in converting school buses into amazing custom mobile homes. And although there may be other companies out there doing similar things, few are doing it to the impressive level that they are.

As home prices continue to skyrocket, more and more people are looking at "skoolies" (i.e. school buses that have been converted into homes) and other converted vehicles as a viable and more affordable option -- and when you see Luke’s bus and some of the work he has done, it’s really no wonder why.

In this episode, we talk about his background, why he and his wife chose "skoolie life" and how that decision ultimately led to them starting this business, his cost breakdown of life on the road (and the relative affordability of building out and living in a bus compared to home ownership), how he literally "raises the roof," cool projects on the horizon and much more!
