TINY HOUSE SWAP | van life vs. bus life


what what Bec? hey what what Bec get up!
where are we who’s house is this? Eamon & I have lived in our sixty square foot home
for almost two years now and often we think to ourselves
would this be better if we had a toilet maybe a shower or a couple extra square
feet so today we’re gonna put that to the test and upgrade our rig
I’m so excited are you excited let’s check out what we’re getting into today this is Maria and chase they live in
their 40-foot long bus for 24 hours these two lovely people are going to be
living in Trinity even and I get to live in this beautiful freakin bus but before we trade lives let’s have a
look at these two homes Eamon and I live full-time and our self converted Mercedes
Sprinter van the total living space is only 60 square feet our home is
outfitted with a 55 liter fridge 15 gallons of fresh water and 320 watts of
solar power there is an outdoor shower and no toilet we can live off-grid for
approximately 4 days chase and Maria Jose live full-time and their self
converted School Bus with their two dogs the total living space is 250 square
feet it is comprised of three separate rooms their home is outfitted with a
full-sized fridge 100 gallons of fresh water and 800 watts of solar power there
is an indoor hot water shower and a toilet tio Aventura bus can live off
grid for two whole weeks let’s see how these next 24 hours pan out let’s tick
off the first task of the day we’re gonna try and move the bus they gave us
a few tips but I say a few I mean like not many or like hey make sure you put
it in park when you winter done driving kind of things so that’s all we know and
my role here is to secure the dogs the dogs don’t love it when the bus is
moving so we have to move all the pillows I’ve gotta get the dogs in a
certain position like Maria would and this is just gonna be a wild ride you
guys are you ready house swap baby ok yeah try again first one I don’t need it
I’m absolutely no clue how fast I’m going right now about 35 km/h you’re
okay Jake light of it good boy Jake Amy just realized he did
not have Google Maps on oh my god we’re turning yeah yeah it’s awesome I’m feeling good man
if we can definitely do bus babe it’s super fun the air brakes are really
weird to get used to because it’s like yeah
the biggest disappointment thus far is there’s no big horn so if I had a bus
that would be priority what number one Carla here we go the first major difference we’re finding
between bus life and van life is that bus life you’ve really got to be
intentional about where you’re going and where you’re taking the bus as opposed
to van life where it’s just get in the front seat and drive and you can be
Walmart parking lot no problem beautiful beach side no problem we Nicole over for
a second table was just freaking out little mix-up on the cap definitely a little bumpier nothing we
can’t handle for a short period of time Wow oh yes neutral sorry chase and then
ignition down as I was saying you have to be a lot more intentional about bus
life driving so they actually have to put all of this stuff into their sink
when they’re moving and I think as I move throughout the house I’m gonna find
other things that they kind of lock up and do oh she made the bed so pretty for
us well everything else looks pretty good we have our first house gasps how
was your ride in the van with a little bit in the bumps yeah did you guys have
a nice chat too cuz you guys always say it’s so loud up here
nice we decided that we’re gonna invite our guests over for dinner for lunch and
then they’re gonna have us over for dinner so you guys just make yourself
comfortable oh yeah boy
let me check because we from Brazil and they say chill
uncle adventure man resilient people yeah my my wife is Argentinean that’s
yeah yeah yeah neighbor so continue back with lunch again okay I really like your
dog you like yeah he’s cute this is gonna be a game changer can we start
this without a lighter yes no way Oh all the time here oh yes the Probie oh
yeah we actually don’t keep it on for safety reasons yeah okay three bit oh
it’s not just under you oh I know exactly where it is don’t worry oh
that’s really smart you guys don’t keep your protein it’s pouring out the cop

after doing here how do you put it on the other way yep right like that I’m so
scared of penis okay gonna go for it right now

one of our tasks today is to go into town although you look like you’re
pretty comfortable Yoshi so we are going to figure out how
this Jeep works what’s up with the keys chase every key has a purpose so yeah okay so that was very exciting let’s go
figure out how to get this Jeep off got it pull back on it just to make sure
Oh nice white oh this is too interesting
because obviously the bus is way too big to bring into town so you’ve got to have
something to whip around in and these guys just happen to have a really rad
Jeep yeah we swapped with the best people ever didn’t wait okay so we’re
just about to go to town and we need to put everything up well that was easy
yeah that was very easy we have the key toes with us

prepare some Yogi’s we have quinoa on the cooktop right now yep we’re using
their cookbook for some recipes and it’s over here I just went to the kitchen I
thought that was some kind of chocolate bar and then I saw the word fire and
start and I wanted to impress chase by getting my fire started here
oh yeah it’s an absolutely beautiful situation in order for the heat to last
all night I was instructed that you need at least four to six look so I’ve only
got like four in there but he’s got them pre-cut I don’t need to go cut logs but
I do need to get more so I just opened this up this

feeling they will open aim is calling you should put in speaker hey man just

cute okay so we’ve no more power Pablo’s delicious and we’re going to
see in the morning oh what an experience okay now that the 24 hours are done hold
on is this video brought through my chai wallah time sponsored by I think so enjoy times with friends in your belly my initial thoughts are what a
difference that lifestyle is although a lot of people think you know living in a
vehicle is kind of the same concept it really is totally different lifestyle
obviously you’re going to share the same interest that’s why we get along so well
but the idea of bus life is a literal home that you can bring everywhere with
you but it’s different because you need to obviously Park and set up and be more
intentional about where you’re driving very that’s exactly what I said last
night so it sounded very nice coming out here we got to pull right up in to a
spot to get water yesterday water was hectic super hands-on everything about
this is way more hands-on yeah than the bus the bus is really like set it and
forget it like you can actor your your hose and
also you might have to go three hours to get free water correct right so it’s
like very interesting again like we can just go anywhere really we’ve literally
pulled over on the side street before I’m like hey can we use your hose and
then we have water for three days yeah days we can undo that yeah I’m not gonna
miss you this is simplicity at its finest okay that’s a wrap are you know
24-hour tiny house swap if you guys enjoyed this video please make sure you
give it a big thumbs up subscribe to TL aventura bus come and see us yes come
and find these guys little plumbing gonna do first now that you have a van
at the bus back I’ve been holding my poop all day I’m gonna go you’re gonna go how can i
go poop

  1. HANDS UP IF YOU LAUGHED OUT LOUD DURING THIS VIDEO 🙋🙋🙋!! Also, for anyone asking about the blue linen pants I was wearing in this episode and/or my linen overalls they are handmade in Canada by my friend Jo. Here's her website: https://www.cedarandvine.net/?afmc=BECCA

  2. a week ago i watched a vid about a girl who lived in a van. the past week i have been binging vids of people who live in a bus/van etc…

  3. Personally I don't think I would be able to live in a bus that size and have it move constantly, in saying that I might try to do a smaller bus that is like a big van because the van is a bit too small for me (TOILET AT LEAST OMG)

  4. My husband and I have been traveling in our 32ft 1994 renovated RV for the past 2 months. And you definitely need a small car to get around in. But we love it way more than our regular 1,000 sq ft home 😆🤷🏻‍♀️

  5. Thats why you need both. Bus and a van. Oh yes a dune bug in the back of the bus. Under the bed or over the engine . Well what ever way it will fit. Better then towing . I will do this but have some motor cycles as well. I just need to redesign a bus the engine could be behind the cab area. . I don't like the engine up front even if its easier to get to. Could have a 4×4 bus. . Need to get the bus then start to change it to suit.

  6. They literally made Eamon and Bec's life seem so sad and miserable lol. I know its not but thats how they made it look with all the struggling and stuff

  7. What about travelling with a DIY rv trailer? – The van seems great, but I dont know how I feel about converting it into a tiny home. If it breaks you lose your home too. But with a trailer you have to tow it around, slightly smaller than the bus, but taller.

  8. The funniest part of the video when this dude was pouring hot water into Road Shower whatever you call it. I was dying and laughing so hard. Both of them showered outdoor was hilarious! Thumb up on this one. I enjoyed this one. Thank for the laughs.

  9. I really want to live in a van or bus. How is it like? It’s been my dream to live like this. Can you please respond and tell me how it is and the experience. I’m 11 btw.

  10. Who else already discovered their video and other tiny houses videos before Jennelle and her snake, Alfredo’s channel? Hehe

  11. You could always get a short bus for a smaller bus to be able to get a shower/ bathroom if you dont want the huge bus

  12. I'm just looking out the window and it's cold outside
    There are two boys yelling behind me and I'm terrified
    Counting trees as they pass me by
    And I'm trying not to look across the aisle
    'Cause Maya's letting Dan put his hand up her skirt
    And she's got her hand down his pants

    I know the driver sees it
    I know he's peeking in the rearview mirror
    He says nothing
    Trying to ignore it, it's fucking boring
    I'm quietly observing, I'm saying nothing

    No one's watching us, don't give a fuck
    Wheels on the bus
    I'm holding it down up in the front
    Wheels on the bus
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Wheels on the bus

    Now, I'ma light it up and pass it
    Puff, puff and pass it
    Don't be a dick and babysit, come on, just pass it over here
    Counting cars as they pass me by
    And I'm trying not to look a row behind me
    'Cause Jason's got his ass on the glass
    And I hate him, driver hit a bump fast

    I know the driver sees it
    I know he's peeking in the rearview mirror
    He says nothing
    Trying to ignore it, it's fucking boring
    I'm quietly observing, I'm saying nothing

    No one's watching us, don't give a fuck
    Wheels on the bus
    I'm holding it down up in the front
    Wheels on the bus
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Wheels on the bus

    Ooh, ooh, oh, ooh
    Wheels on the, on the bus
    Ooh, ha, ooh, oh, ooh, ooh
    Wheels on the bus

    No one's watching us, don't give a fuck
    Wheels on the bus
    I'm holding it down up in the front
    Wheels on the bus
    Ooh (wheels on the bus)
    Ooh (wheels on the bus)
    Ooh
    Wheels on the bus

  13. One night I had a nightmare, quite vivid, yet ethereal. I was in my own cosy bed, woke up in a hipsters bed. Then I had to talk about my experience in the hitpsters house, the hipsters lifestyle. We all biked around gravel roads on penny farthings. Fuck me! They had me playing the banjo, harmonica, lighting a fire by hand rubbing sticks together, even though I had a lighter on me. Even forced me to drink my own piss because it's more nutritious. They would not let me shave no matter what. I was forced to grow a beard. Not only that but put some shitty wax in it, to CLEAN it, mankeep right?! With the beard I had to wear braces, pointy shoes and a sleeve tattoo. They forced me into dreadlocks, but unlike the beard which I had to spend money on dollar shave club was, I was not allowed to wash the dreads, because the hair is supposedly self cleaning….ok……after a couple of weeks my hair stunk, self cleaning my ass, lift anyones dreads up and smell their neck. We had to play music from a Gramophone so had a couple of singles from the 80's and some generic House music from the 90's because thats all they could dig up from 2nd hand shops. We had to wear hemp clothing and hug a tree because of global warming. They drove a massive BMW gas guzzler where the cockpit is so high you have to get a step ladder to climb in. They decided to watch a movie, of course it was an obscure 1930's movie on 16mm film played through a projector against a white sheet that nobody liked even back then. I wouldn't mind if it was Bride of Frankenstein but that was to popular for them, we had to dig into the grass roots of the 30's avante garde with "man walks up the street then back down the street 20 times" with the finale being a dog walking in front of horse and cart barely missing by a full second. Fuck me, at least I gave it a chance, they didnt even watch it, too busy taking selfies in front of the screen signalling to everybody on social media what they were doing. That was pretty much the whole time, signalling to social media, growing beards, drinking awful herbal tea pretending you liked it. Anyway, ive been awake 30 minutes and composing myself, im glad that I live in the Uk, because if it was the good old US of A I would have had access to a gun and stuck it up my nose and pulled the trigger by now.

  14. Vegans, you know that when you cook your food its alive. For example, when you cut an onion it defends itself by releasing a gas which causes us to tear up. Maybe it doesn't walk or moo but whatever we eat we're killing something.

  15. Eamon Bec…can you tag the couple of the bus? Ive been there since you started posting. It seems like you guys could've designed n started n lived in the bus before you hit the van. I choose van for parking purposes other than ease of mobility. That toilet n shower tho

  16. I am legit planning to live n a short bus now lol cuz it's easier to drive but big enough for a small bathroom. What I get for watching the video of a girl with a snake.

  17. Ive been nonstop watching like life in a van or whatever so like when i saw the bus i was sooooooo jealous that they had all that stuff then i realized…. I have a house 😂😂😂😂😂🤣

  18. If I see one more comment about janelle I’m gonna lose it yes most of of got here from her and Alfredo no need to comment it 50 times on EVERY van life video.
