Housing prices crushing you? Hit the road, Jack!

With the housing boom still putting a crush on our bank balance and city living stretching our sanity, more and more people are finding ingenious solutions to tiny house living.

The movement to convert old buses and caravans has always been ticking over in the background but has lately enjoyed a renaissance – people are taking seriously the makeover of tiny homes on wheels, giving special care and attention to include all the comforts of home.

We think there’s a lot to be said for going the extra mile – inside and out.

The movement is by now well established as a lifestyle in the USA but, with companies such as Van Go Fitouts now specialising in a customised interior solution for your vehicle, from kitchen, bathroom and all kinds of cabinetmaking there’s no reason not to up sticks and get on the road.

Here’s a selection of renovated mobile homes from all over the world to whet your appetite for travel:

1. Everything you need in a comfortable family home

2. Bus life in New Zealand


3. Or just the essentials… like a travelling bar

4. The travelling life

5. Going with the flow
