Couple Complete Mini School Bus To Campervan Conversion

Mira and Jeremy Thompson used to live full time in an RV. Then they converted a mini school bus into a new home on wheels.

Named Mini, their pint-sized skoolie has all the trappings of home – but a lot more mobility!

I often get asked what kind of fuel mileage I get out of our mini bus. We have gotten as high as 18mpg on the flats in the Nevada desert. and as low as 12 mpg driving around the hills in the city of San Fransisco.
