Living healthy and fulfilled lives, this family of six don’t need four walls around because they have four wheels to take them!

Introducing Trip, Jay, Ace, Hunter, Gypsy, Speedy (the snake), and of course Marji (the bus)! This family have been living on the road since 2014. In fact, Hunter has never lived in a house! Trip and Jay converted this school bus, Marji, into a magnificent home on wheels that includes an open plan loungeroom and kitchen, toilet, shower, and even a jigsaw puzzle press!!

Name of the Van:

Marji

Size of the Bus:

12 tonnes

Vane Make:

79 Bedford


THE TRIPPING GYPSIES

“Going to different places, seeing new things
and exploring unfamiliar areas were only some of the reasons the
Tripping Gypsies noted when asked ‘why live in a bus?’.”
– The Tripping Gypsies


ONBOARD

This lifestyle also works perfect for their boys, as they are able to wake up somewhere new and have something new to learn everywhere they go!

Home school for this bus life family makes sense when living like a nomad around Australia.

INTERESTING FACTS

12 tonnes of love – Marji’s 400kg engine has been rebuilt twice by Trip and Jay! Now she’s a beast that comfortably cruises at 100km per hour. 360L of fresh water tanks (with filtered drinking water), 400W solar panels power their 480 Ah battery bank, which in turns keeps a house size fridge and freezer running with no problems.


A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS

WHAT GOT YOU INTO BUS LIFE IN THE FIRST PLACE?

  • Trip went on a little weekend away with someone who lived in a bus and loved it! He loved it so much, that the next week we bought a bus. That’s how quick it was for us!

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO JUMP INTO THE BUS?

  • We left the house we were living after 7 or 8 months (of owning the bus). Everything we thought we’d need was on the bus. We didn’t have electricity, no light or fridge… but we survived!
