Couple Who Sold Their 3-Story House and Family Business to Live on the Road in a Converted School Bus Say They Would Rather Die Than Go Back to Old Way of Living

A couple who sold everything to live on a converted school bus before narrowly escaping bankruptcy say they would rather die than go back to their old lives.

Tawny McVay, 34, and her husband Michael, 31, from Billings, Montana, previously had a family gym business, a three-story house and a nice car – but they weren’t happy.

After watching a bus life renovation video in spring 2018, they started to research homes on wheels. Just two months later they put their home on the market and sold almost everything they owned including their family business.

They found buyers for their business and home but both fell through after they’d bought their bus.

Struggling to make ends meet, they had to live with family for six months and Tawny and Michael came within a week of bankruptcy.
